I know Christmas has been over for some time now, but I have to show you, what Sybille sent me as a surprise Christmas present. Sorry, Sybille, not all the chocolate and candy made it to the foto shoot! When it comes to chocolate and candy from Europe, we are regular pigglets! I got a booklet of sock patterns and two older Sabrina Magazines, which are filled to the prim with great patterns! I almost love them all and that's not easy. Nowadays, I can find only one or two patterns in magazines which I like. These old ones are great! And with the sock pattern booklet there was also a ball of sock yarn! Thanks so much Sybille. Oh, by the way you have to check out her blog. She made a wonderful feather and fan shawl with leftover yarn! It's wonderful!
Some of my knitted items made it to California (as gifts my daughter gave to her friends)! On top there's Elizabeth Zimmermann's "snail hat".
Clara is wearing a "Diamond Blossom Scarf" by Iris Schreier. For Chris, I made socks for his spindly thin legs and large feet, as well as a wavy scarf in blue wool/alpaca blend.
On the left, Hannah is wearing the little red hat I made with self dyed yarn (she's got matching socks as well) and on the right she's sitting on a hill somewhere on California's coast, with the chevron scarf around her neck and some straw between her teeth!
All right then, thanks for sending me the pictures, folks! ;o)
And of course there has to be a picture of my two couch potatoes! Really, what could be more comfortable, then sitting in my single chair, knitting, drinking tea, listening to music and watching those two sleep! Oh, yeah, if it snowed gently, that would be perfect!
