Some Knitterly Gifts!

As well as having a wonderful time at One Devonshire Gardens , I was also thoroughly spoiled in the gift dept.
And this being mainly a knitting blog , I will show some lovely knitting related gifts first!
A wee while ago , one of my very kind knitterly pals taught me to spin. Now I was not a natural , but I tried to keep up a little spindle spinning , until I got a lovely wheel of my own , but by that time , the confidence had sunk! So when my kind knitterly pal sent me a gift token for my birthday , I decided to use it for this book - a little refresher course , thats already boosting up my confidence .
I've been getting into the sock knitting again , and there is lots of gorgeous sock yarn out there - like this one from Arauncunia ! Another very kind knitterly pal gave me this gift along with the very gorgeous Langs wooden sock needles . Can't wait to knit this yarn up!
Oh yes! A little Harris Tweed brightens the day , especially if its in the form of a bag! A gift from my kind Knitterly Sister (still haven't finished the Cropped Noro Cardi for her , shame on me!)
On comments
Thank you for all the recent kind comments - I still haven't worked out how to email those who comment directly to say how much I appreciate , its something I will try and work at some point.
It is lovely to get comments , its like getting some nice unexpected cards through the post . And I always think its nice to let folk know that it is appreciated . (I guess its the mother in me! lol)
Anyway , here is another gratuitous photo of One Devonshire!
There is a beautiful Art Noveau style Stained glass window through that door - ah!
