For those who haven't read about it before, it is a chance for us bloggers to show off gifts we have received. It could be yarn, a thread, a piece of fabric or something that's not for crafting but was sent/given to brighten your day. Have you made or given a gift, that counts too as does a free chart you have found and have used, given by the designer. Did you previously receive stash that you have finally got round to using?

I'd been looking at cable socks in a magazine that June kindly sent to me some time ago and thinking that i had never knitted a patterned pair. A new learning curve for 2017?
Unfortunately, the magazine pattern wasn't for the size needles I have or the thickness of wool that I had, so I looked at the recent free pattern from Christine, Winwick Mum blog.
DH peered over my shoulder and commented on how lovely they were and he could see himself in a pair of those but perhaps not the cricket colour. I had some 4 ply wool/alpaca mix from his Christmas gift to me, so decided to give them a try.....
I also had another request for a summer cardigan. Nice jazzy pink wool hopped into my basket when I was out a few weeks ago.
Jo over at Through the Keyhole kindly sent me two lovely books to read after having a drawing on her blog. Once I have read them they will go off to my Book Borrowers group for them to read before they head off to a local charity shop where one of my ladies works as a volunteer, so thank you Jo for your kindness, they will be very well read books.
Thanks for stopping by and i apologise there is not much to see recently on here or that I have not left much of a comment on your own blog. To be honest, I am not so well at the moment so not a lot of crafting has been happening at all - not a lot of anything really due to steroid meds and other strong stuff. An appointment with the specialist early April has come through and hopefully we will get some answers and I can get back to some sort of normality again real soon.
Love and blessings
