Birthday gift all ready to go

I have just finished putting together a birthday gift for my BFF.  Since she is from Denmark, I decided to make five little Nisse (Christmas Elves).  She loves anything to do with Nisse.  I also made Pepita Brittle for the first time following the recipe exactly as very well written at  I had enough to fill a tin, give a small gift bag to a neighbor and have a leftover dish for my FC.  The scarf is knit with Plymouth Baby Alpaca.  It is as light as a feather and the pattern was easy.  It took just one skein.  Now all is ready to package up and get into the mail.  And it will be on time I might add.  Sigh.... a feeling of accomplishment.

Hi Jeanne,
I found it very funny how you found my blog, but glad you did anyway!! Thanks for your advice. i've heard of the effects of the nightshade family myself. I used to be so strict with my diet ut then I got depressed again and gave up. my DD is on a health kick at the mo and she's doing all the cooking so she's taking me along for the ride1
I read through all your posts. I love your spinning. my wheel is a bit big and clunky, like a Louet 10, but beggers cant be choosers and its good for a first whel. i am doing it slowly as my FM allows.
Like your elves they'e cue. we hve 2 cats and try and keep them off the furniture, they've wrcked our lther suite, but they just sneek back.
