Finished sock and gifts
I received some great parcels in the mail:) This was from Yvette in France in exchange for an elemental. Hand spun/dyed and I don't know if you can see on the front one it has beads in it:) I don't know what it will be yet but something will suggest itself. In the meantime it sits on my desk for inspiration. Thanks Yvette
Then from White Willow Etsy shop Brooke sent me these 2 skeins of sock yarn. Colour is Medicine Woman. Can you see the lovely stitch markers attached? This yarn is so squishy I think it may be a shawl instead of socks:) I ordered this around 10 days ago so it made a fast journey over the pond.
This parcel of joy came from Blue Witch. A while ago I felt drawn to send her a purple shawl and an elemental in appreciation of her blog. It always makes me think and I enjoy her down to earth writing and no nonsense approach. Look what she sent in thanks:) Home grown honey and beeswax candle, needle protectors and gauge and fleece to pack it in. Alpaca and curly blue leicester:) I think I may try spinning it with my drop spindle after Woolfest. Hopefully I may get a few hints on how to use one:)
Thank you BW it was much appreciated and the honey is divine on hand made bread:)
Well we are packed almost for Woolfest. Looking forward to meeting lots of blogger friends throughout the weekend.
