A lovely surprise

Some weeks ago I bought some KnitPro needle tips from The Knitter's Studio and as a result I won their May Prize Pack! My prize arrived yesterday and I was absolutely delighted with it.

It includes a gorgeous Buddy Case, KnitPro Shawl Pin, Debbie Bliss Magazine and a packet of StitchDots. I have been wanting a shawl pin for some time and now I have one! The Buddy Case has also arrived just in time for my trip to Kangaroo Island. Now I have a practical case for all my knitting notions. I will be spending several weeks on the island and will have to go very prepared knitting wise. I'll be taking several projects with me.

I finally got round to blocking Gabriel's Wings. I knitted this shawl with a skein of Noro Silk Garden Sock Yarn. Its quick, easy and uses up all the yarn in the skein. Don't you just hate having those little left over bits of yarn?

I can't throw those little bits away!! (although in the great house purge of 2010, some may have been tossed)
