This treasure was in the mail today, from Hobbygåsa, a kind and generous friend from Norway, an excellent knitter, photographer and a nature lover :)
Look at the ladybirds! Aren't they adorable!
And then, among other things, two really useful tools, one that I was on my wishlist for a very long time and that will make sewing and weaving in much easier (and hopefully enjoyable :)):
and one whose function Hobbygåsa had to explain to me but then I was over the moon because there'll me no more slipping from my dpns :)
You put the black rubber caps on the ends of your dpns (double pointed needles) to prevent your stitches from slipping off - quite handy if you're carrying your knitting around in a bag, as I do. The beads are gorgeous, really my style :)
Thank you, Hobbygåsa!
