Just look! I feel like it's my birthday or something: three books (perfect timing), a Fratello kit and a fabulous Namaste buddy case containing a set of absolutely gorgeous stitch holders.
Now, okay, I should mention that Justine (Marama = Ravelry Link) contacted me with a chuckle when I won because it is well known that I am not the biggest fan of sock knitting. Also, I have glanced at the knitting instructions and I paled in fear at the following words, 'toe-up', best knitted on 'circulars' and uses some kind of 'crochet cast on'.
Gulp - I think that I have been delivered a extremely hefty learning curve. However, the yarn is gorgeous and I think that it might be the perfect colour and pattern for the Fella?
Um. So. If I approach anyone soon, hands overflowing awkwardly with pamphlet, circulars, a crochet hook and ball of handsome looking yarn. Just trust me, unless you are very patient and enjoy working with adults who get very grouchy when they are all fingers and toes with new techniques, I suggest that you RUN!
