Beautiful Gift

Yesterday I got the most amazing gift in the post, all the way from Minnesota, from my knitting friend Melissa. She knitted this gorgeously soft baby blanket for Max, and I love it. It’s scrumptiously soft and a gorgeous colour and Max seems to really like it too, as he slept a whole 3 hours under it.

Thank you so much my beautiful friend!

Happy Birthday to Me!

It’s my birthday today! We were meant to be in Germany with my twin brother and his family, but my niece Clara and my nephew Yoan unfortunately have whooping cough. So, we’ve postponed our trip until end of April. Which means that we’ll be there for Clara’s 3rd birthday and my mum will also be there with us for her birthday. So instead of celebrating mine and my brothers birthday and Luke’s birthday, we’ve got another two to celebrate. I’ve treated myself to some cake:

And some macaroons:

And look what arrived in the post today, my second issue of The Knitter (a Christmas present from my husband)…I’ll be delving into this tonight with a glass of something sparkly.

And a quick shout out to Melissa from Knitting Sandwich, I believe it’s her and her daughter Lily’s birthday today as well. Happy birthday x 2!
