A knitty Christmas.........

Yes I have finally got around to taking some pictures of my lovely knitty christmas gifts. I was very lucky indeed. Lots of lucious goodies and not a ball of yarn in site.
So what did I get?

Well you can see I finally got my lovely Harmony wood Knitpicks - they are just divine. They are so smooth and I am now going to ask for the DPNs for my birthday (which I am hoping to purchase on my jolly out to Getknitted next Saturday).
I also received the lovely Lantern Moon crochet needle case from my Mother in law (you can grab a bargain if you are quick as Robynn has these on sale on her website at the moment - click here). I was also given a larger size Know knits pouch for those bigger than socks projects from Gabrielle who had it couriered over from Canada. (A very willing courier I might add.) I also finally got my hands back on the Jane Brockett book - The Gentle Art of Domesticity which was whisked off me as I came home through the door after my venture out to Crafternoon Tea back in October. I had a chance to sit down and have a read today and I was inspired so took the following photo after putting my recent John Lewis Sale yarn purchases (they were allowed they are for presents for others so don't count as stash as they are allocated gifts not yet fully formed) into a basket and all my odds and ends into a glass vase. I also added a couple of sets of needles for effect.

And I am sure that it also inspired this:

I was also very pleased to receive Not Just Socks - Sandi Rosner. I already have Not Just More Socks which I have already knitted a number of items from. I am looking forward to knitting the mittens on the front cover. Stitch and Bitch Nation also appeared from my sister in law and there are a number patterns I have bookmarked aswell.

Ooh, I'm so jealous. They were out of the Harmony needles when I tried to order some.

I keep meaning to come to one the IKnit evenings - since I work in London. I'll check out when the next one is and try and pluck up the courage to some for the evening.
