This was my gift from Secret Santa at Flavaknits , a (ceramic) knitted mug! Or a ceramic mug that looks like it is knitted, with some lovely cables too! It came with some lovely shortbread . Its my new favourite mug for my tea.
And of course , the shortbread is long gone , so now I have my lovely chocolate gingers and my daily paper for a bit of reading , I may even get to page 4 before something happens to call me away!
Got a note from Royal Mail which means I will need to visit the Post Office tomorrow , bother, was hoping to enjoy my parcel today . Its from Old Maiden Aunt and it contains wonderful sock yarn (Its weight-watcher yarn, so its not really part of the yarn diet - that means it will get cast on immediately).
Will have to cast on my February socks tomorrow then - the yarn has a wonderful name for its colourway - Gothic!
That means I can get on with January's socks just now , with the cold weather at present , I am needing lots of lovely warm hand-knit socks .
