from Hanna with love

I’ve finally taken photos and can now show you all the goodies I received from Hanna almost a week ago, as part of our Ravelry Favorites Swap! My assortment of goodies for her is piling up as well, but I’m afraid the main thing – the hat – is still missing… Eeek! As usual, I’ll be working against the deadline. But that’s when I work best, so no worries, Hanna! :)

This is the hat Hanna made for me. She knit it in the lovely Garnstudio DROPS Silke Alpaca. I made a hat out of the same yarn last summer, so I know it’s a real luxury to work with.

In addition to the hat, she also sent me two skeins of kitten mohair with a lovely sheen! I’ve never worked with mohair before, yay! Uuuuum, stupid question though: is it made from cat hair?

Included in the package was also this box of assorted teas (I loooove trying out new tea flavors!) and, um, some chocolate bars, which have, um, misteriously disappeared in the meantime…

And finally, to top it all off, Hanna added a wonderful knitting-related card and a handmade necklace to show off her other crafty skills! The whole package followed a blue theme – so thoughtful.

Here’s me being silly with your gifts, Hanna… Thank you so much!

About fridica

I started knitting completely by accident, when I was visiting my parents for a holiday in 2008. On a boring Sunday afternoon, I decided to dig through their stash of books to see if there was anything interesting to take back to my apartment. A knitting manual happened to be one of the books I found. I got curious, my mom immediately dug out her old needles and yarn stash (which she hadn’t used in a decade at least), and in a few minutes we were both casting on - she by memory, I by following the instructions from the book… :) Since I normally prefer learning from books, this was ideal.. I took the book home with me, and very very soon - I was an addict.

  1. I’m glad you liked the stuff. I hope the size of the hat is ok. It looks good =o). I tried to knit it as close to size M as possible. Oh, I will post a photo of my hat sometime during this weekend. Love, Hanna.
