Tis almost the night before Christmas and I got a great SP gift:)

Well almost another celebration, Christmas this time:) At the moggie household we celebrate each and every holiday not just our wheel of the year ones. We go down to stay with a good friend tomorrow morning until Boxing day so this will be the last post for a couple of days. You all behave yourselves while I'm away won't you?
We will be seeing my son, daughter and grandsons. Also fitting in a visit to hospital on each of the 3 days as my favourite uncle is in there recovering from major surgery. I am also going to be going to tidy my mums grave and put some plants on it. Finally (I think) I'll be catching up with the only sister that I get on with. I have 3 sisters and 2 brothers. My favourite brother is living in New Zealand so it will be phone calls to him. My other 2 sisters and brother I don't have anything to do with. Long story and not very nice so we won't go into it here. Suffice it to say the mog has a busy few days lined up:) I am taking my knitting with me to do in the car. I do have some goodies to show you though:) Look what my dear SP sent me that arrived nicely today. She sent me a marvellous bag for travelling knitting complete with a change purse. Lots of different teas to try and I adore fruit and herb tisanes:) A lavender sachet that smells delightful, a candy cane envelope that held a beautiful mermaid holiday card. A cute sheep with its chocolate droppings:))) My grandsons will love this when they see it tomorrow.2 balls of knitpicks superwash in red pepper. I loved working with the knitpicks wool of the andes so I can see this being equally good to knit with. Thank you SP a wonderful present:)

What a great gift package! I find myself loving Knitpicks more and more, am always surprised how truly nice their yarn is, it's getting to the point now though that I shouldn't be.
Amber, wishing you and Mr.Mog the very best for the holidays, smiles,laughter,dancing,singing, whatever you fancy, make.good.time.
Yes, I love the berries photo.
