The kindness of friends

I had a LOVELY day in London yesterday. I met up with Katharine, the other moderator of the ThreeBagsFull group on Ravelry. We shopped for fabric and yarn, drank tea and ate cake, chatted and knitted, and of course made lots of plans for events in the group. Katharine told me I needed to bring a suitcase down with me - and I was completely overwhelmed by the kindness and generosity of some of my dear friends who sent wonderful treats over for me. I won't even begin to tell you how much chocolate I brought back!!!

I also met up with my dear friend Snoopydog today and we exchanged Christmas gifts. So I included the goodies from Snoops in the photo. Aren't knitter just some of the best people? xxx

Wow amazing. I was given the Yarm Whisperer as well and thoroughly loved it. If you haven't read it yet you have a treat in store.

Knitters are the nicest people, that is so true.

I'm shocked! And I have to admit, more than a little bit envious too! Although I did receive a swift and a yarn winder for Christmas so I really can't complain at all, but that's an amazing amount of loveliness!
