Thank you to...

I don't seem to be able to find much time to update the blog, although I certainly don't lack the material...it's time that is a rare commodity these days.
Nevertheless, I now do have to make time to say thank you to some wonderful people, namely limegreenjelly aka freestylefibre for being my secret partner in the Ravelry UK Swap... see what I got:

limegreenjelly is a true fibre artist - have a look also at her website and her etsy shop.

Opening the box has been so much fun...see the bunny theme there?

Bunny stitch markers

these are the cutest stitch markers ever!

My very first skein of Noro Kureyon Sock - the colours are just me!

and some superyummy Hipknits Silk Aran

Hipknits' Aran Silk

This yarn is so incredible... I received 400g of it and I am still debating what to do with it. I was thinking of something like Juliet, but I would need to redo all the calculations, because the gauge is completely different. Any suggestions?

And then, at the end of March, while I was working in Scotland for a few days, Mr. D called me to tell me that a small parcel from Germany had arrived, which left me puzzled no end. The mystery was solved upon my return home: a jiffy bag from Suessstoff contained this:

Suessstoff's surprise!

Isn't it the cutest notebook?? And it has Hugo's twin on the cover:

Hugo's twin?

Thank you so much, girls! You made me very happy and make me feel very spoiled indeed :)

Thank you Archi and Rabbits'Guy...it is really like Christmas out of season...or maybe not quite, since spring is yet to show itself properly here :( The bunnies are certainly waiting to go outside, but now it's too chilly/windy/wet for them...

Simply a pleasure putting your parcel together, the Uk Swap has been one of my favourites, and thanks for the compliments!
