UK Swap Goodies

I lurve getting presents, well who doesn't? And after a week of being away I came home to find a parcel waiting for me with my neighbour. It can be a bit hit and miss whether the postie takes it there but hurrah hurrah he did and now I have goodies.

My partner, Nic has knitted a lovely pair of blue mittens for me from Colinette Skye.

They are a fabulous colour and fit wonderfully well. I tried typing in them but it all got a bit messy but my house is FREEZING.
She also included a book on Country Crafts that has a section in on spinning, dyeing and weaving: all things I am interested in. There was also some lovely Hand Food hand cream because I need things to help with dry hands from being outside all day. There were also some hot chocolate drinks, but the lite kind to help in my rather none existent diet - it's tricky eating well when you're away from a kitchen.
And finally there was a lovely skein of Cherry Tree Hill Supersock DK yarn in the Wild Cherry colourway.

So all in all a fabulous stash of pressies and just what I needed after a cold and dull week away from my lovely little house.

OOo - I forgot to add that there is still time to enter my One World - One Heart giveaway. Please follow the link and add your comment.
