My friend Maddy (Hello Maddy) knit me this beautiful cardigan. I felt really overwhelmed because only my mum has ever knit me things and it felt really special for a friend to take the time to knit me a garment.
Isn't it lovely?
My other woolly gift was the most delicate 4 ply yarn from the Isle of Skye. My friend (hello Angela) told a holiday story in the summer of how she made the whole family visit a Dye House called Shilasdair down a long bumpy road in Skye. She said I would have loved it there. Then when I opened my Christmas present I had this...
It is dyed with Juniper and has a really delicate colourway.
Did I mention that my favourite colour is green?
I am off to find a shawl pattern on ravelry for this gorgeous yarn. Hope you had fabulous presents too. Jo xx
