Surprise in the post


I hadn't been expecting this in the post, so it was a lovely surprise.  This is from Debi for the autumn exchange on Stitchin Fingers.  It was a lovely start to the day.

Thought I'd show you the pattern I'm using for D's jumper.  This is knitting up a lot quicker than J's did and the colour is certainly easier on the eyes.  It is quite nice to do be an aran pattern for a change.


As if I needed an excuse, today is the perfect day for staying in to sew.  We had a couple of inches of snow in the night, which isn't much, but it has all frozen.  I think that indoors in the warm is the perfect place to be.

That will become a lovely sweater for your son. I just started an Aran blanket and I love knitting it (sofar, maybe it will become boring before I have finished it).

We tried to leave the village last night...no go. Why oh why cant we have gritters..still, we have fuel, food and while we are going slightly stir crazy, the company is reasonably ok...I bet you finish it before ds gets back!

I could use a sweater like that right now. It is wicked cold and super-windy here today!

The sweater is going to be gorgeous. I love knitting Aran, it's so therapeutic and looks great.

Stay in and keep warm.

A lovely card. I like the coloured flecks in the knitting. It is definitely not a day to be out in. I had to walk down to our local Co-op for a new kettle as mine blew up this morning and the pavements were treacherous, as were the side roads.

What a lovely surprise you gor in your mail!

Lovely sweater. I bet you do like these colors better than the black...Loads easier for the eyes, anyway. Both are lovely but I have to work on black in the daytime hours...Stay warm.

Your postcard from Debi is lovely! I was pleased with mine too...I had given up on getting one from her, as it was so long in coming, but she'd obviously had a hard time over the past few months and is just catching up.

Look forward to seeing the bellpull, it's a lovely colour you used. Nice surprise. The Aran looks gorgeous. :0)
