As it was my birthday on Tuesday, I got a few knit related presents. I got a new Arne and Carlos book called garden knits. It's also a crochet book which I am hoping to learn soon ( fingers crossed!) It has some really lovely things in it. I especially like some of the garden characters! My favourite characters are the mice. I also really love the knitted handles for the little spades and the lovely crocheted blanket. Will need to learn to crochet before I can make the blanket though!
