I'm not certain I'd include brown paper packages tied up with string in a list of my favourite things. Probably because the possibility of receiving them seems so slight. Grey plastic packages another matter and I was thrilled to arrive home and find one waiting for me on Wednesday night. Even more exciting were the contents. My mum have knitted me a scarf and gauntlets in my favourite colours just because. I love these. They look great, are so warm and will make thing of my mum everytime I wear them.
