Gift a ball

Beautifully wrapped

One of my favourite presents this Christmas was my gift a ball from Rosie's Moments. It was a ball of gold and silver mix 4 ply yarn with some sparkle in it, but that wasn't all! As you used the yarn little knitting gifts were revealed.
After much deliberation and perusing of Ravelry I chose the Hitchhiker shawl from Strickmich to knit and starting knitting. The pattern was very easy to follow and made an asymmetrical shawl with a saw tooth edge on one side. The yarn looks beautiful as the gold really catches the light.

The exciting part was waiting for the little gifts to reveal themselves - needles, pins, stitch markers, a row counter, a pair of sheep earrings and necklace dangle, buttons and some dpn holders! Oh I forgot the ribbon and the yarn came with a lavender bag and some dpns!
In fact there were 33 items!

I just loved it so much and now know what gift to buy a knitter!
