She was right. Some of them were a laugh, but some af them are actually quite nice. You just have to ignore the model's hairstyle and makeup -they are 80's patterns :-)
And it is always nice with mohair patterns. Which leads me to a confession....
I bought 60 skeins the other day, some of it mohair, some merino. I'm afraid my closet is getting too small!

Ok, those mint chocolates are all gone -my family helped me out ;-)
These calendars are just so cute.
Marie unwrapping. She has already coloured and shrinked the dinsosaur in it (a piece of "plastic" that you have to colour and put in the oven, it then shrinks and get thick and hard) and looks forward to try out the sunshine photopaper.
Albert absolutely loved his parcel too. Especially the baloon chopper. Actually we all had a lot of fun with it!! He wanted to hear the "Mr Impossible" book when he was tugged in (he even wanted to hear it in english. Marie actually enjoyed it too, reading kids books is a good way to practice english)
What can I say! You're the best and really made my day -as well as the rest of the family's (that chopper was such a laugh, I'll try to upload a video).
I am so happy to have you as a friend!
Hey, you even made sure the wrapping matches my blog *lol*

- The first and second book of Modern Lace Knitting are great. The projects are all kinds of tablecloths etc knitted with small needles so I wonder how big they get when knitted for shawls. Jennie is knitting The Thistle from the second book (cover pic on the red one) and I very much look forward to see it grow.
- Traditional Knitted Lace Shawls has various basic stitch patterns with charts and some projects without charts (why no charts?) It's okey but not at all as good as heirloom by Sharon Miller
- Wraped in Comfort I don't like. Most of the projects have been made with too big needles and too heavy yarn -in my opinion. They just look clumsy.
