The perfect gift

 

As I mentioned in my previous post, we celebrated Sinterklaas last week, and don’t worry, I’m not going to show you every gift. But there is one I really need to tell you about.

It is a knitting kit I’ve been asking for for years. Have you ever heard of Christel Seyfarth ? She makes the most wonderful shawls and jackets. The way the colours are used in her designs, really appeals to me.

This year I finally received a kit!!

Do you see all those lovely green and purple shades? Just perfect.

The kit is for a Bird Jacket, and to show you a proper picture, I use one of Christel Seyfarth’s own pictures.

It is knitted in the round, and then you have to cut it open. That’s really the only part I’m a bit afraid of; never done that before.

But I guess I don’t have to worry about that for a long time; it will take some months probably, before I’ll be at that point.

I would be scared of cutting into it too! You could always use it as a gigantic cowl..or a babies sleeping bag..if you are too terrified..hehe!
