and this (which intriguingly said "pink box" where they usually tick parcel)
Then a quick call to DH and he came home from work with this very beautifully wrapped big pink box from my amazingly organised SP11 (SP11 has only been running a week or so)!!! I thought I would sit outside with a cup of tea in the sunshine and unwrap it.
On wrapping I found soo many things ...
Purpleness ... yarn, gorgeous beads, a scarf pattern on purple card with some cute wee beaded eyelets, and a fabric comb.
Then some more cats, and a great daisy cat mug (I've already used it for tea, its perfect)....
Finally some chocolate (yum), a nightlight holder, winnie the pooh stickers and a cute purple snowflake.
THANK YOU SECRET PAL (aka Lou)
I have a beaded lace border pattern for which the blue beads are perfect just need to knit the shawl first! At first I wasn't so sure what to do with the yarn. It has a gorgeous colour and lustre but as its mercerised cotton I am a little wary of it as I got tendonitis a few years back after (a mammouth stint of) knitting with similiar cotton. However I will knit some baby things for my nephew Daniel and one of the other upcoming new arrivals. I'll take it slowy and knit a few rows each night and see how it goes.
