Today I want to share with you a lovely parcel that I received some weeks ago. Happy mail day!
I received this lovely present from Amanda from The Calm Nook crafts, so sweet! It didn’t come out of the blue, it has a bit of a backstory. You see, I had been eying the Shawl of secrets for a while. Now the pattern wasn’t the part that intimidated me. It seems pretty straightforward and I think that with a bit of courage even I could tackle it. BUT, I’m a horribly slow knitter and I knew it would take me ages to complete. More likely, it would probably end up in the WIP bin. When I mentioned this to Amanda, she offered to knit it for me as a wedding present!
When I received the parcel we had a rare streak of warm weather, but the past weeks it’s been cold and I’ve been wearing it pretty much every day. It has a lovely drape and is royal in size so I can wear it around my neck without it falling off. Plus, look at the colours! It’s perfect to wear with my bright yellow coat.
As a surprise, there was also a beautiful skein of Dingo Dyeworks in there, aren’t those totally my colours? And a sweet little booklet that says ‘Keep smiling always’. I’m so spoiled! Now to figure out what I’m going to make with it, as it’s so soft I want to keep stroking it.
I realize I owe you a selfie with my new shawl, but that has to wait for another day!
