Secret Santa Spoilt Me

As mentioned before, my knitting group did Secret Santa at our last get together and the lovely Cindy was my Secret Santa and boy did she spoil me rotten, just look at these lovelies:

A sock tote, handmade by
Cindy, just the thing for taking your latest sock project with you wherever you go. I think she should start selling these as they are so handy.

Some lovely little Christmas buttons and an ornament for my Christmas tree, hand stitched what's more!! But wait there is more

These beautiful socks that she knitted for me as well and there are some lovely little cat paw patterns knitted in which doesn't show up in the photo, she had made them with Tabby in mind but now these socks will be in memory of two little cats. Cindy said that she found the pattern on the internet that someone had designed to use in memory of their beloved cat who had died. So a huge big thankyou to my Secret Santa, who is no longer a secret, your lovely gifts are very much appreciated. There was one more thing in my parcel but they are long gone in a family of five who had visitors over the weekend, some divine chocolate fudge YUM!!

Now would you believe it, I was Secret Santa to Cindy so now I can reveal what I had been working on for her, if you know her then you will know that she only wears green in all its delightful shades so that was easy and then she mentioned once that she was really starting to like scarves so together with my favourite stitch pattern in the whole world here is the end result.

Last but definately not least a huge big hug from me to everyone who has left me kind messages about the little kitten, you have confirmed what I always knew that knitters are the most generous, caring people, it must be all that love that we put into our creations. God bless you all and thankyou from the bottom of my heart.

Hi, so sorry about your little tiger,it hurts to lose a a little scrap of fur when you give all that caring to keep it going.....
On the xmas front I am so envious of the SS "club" it sounds a lovely way to have crafty contact,I knitted some things for my sons teachers this year including socks and the expressions on their faces was worth all the hours I put into the gifts!
Those socks are to die for,I have been eyeing off some on Ebay from international sellers and stores and am going to try out the PayPal thingy,hope it works,the socks wool here in Aussie is too dear(my DH) nearly had a fit when I bought a BALL from WoolShack!!
Merry Xmas and have great New Year

So sorry to read about Tiger! We had a kitten like that and we almost lost her twice. She eventually grew to be 22 pounds of vim and vinegar.

I wish I had gotten in on OUR secret santa thing, but alas, I didn't make it that week. Happy New year to you and yours. I really enjoy your blog.
