By pure coincidence I both sent to and received from Lindsay this year.
Here is the ornament I sent.
And here is the ornament I received from Lindsay, an absolutely exquisite 3-dimensional beaded star.
Thank you Lindsay, I love it.
I also finished knitting this shawl earlier in the week.
The yarn is Stylecraft's Candy Swirl, one of those big balls of self-striping "cake" yarn.
Eagle eyed readers will spot that the very edge is a slightly darker shade of turquoise. This is because the "one ball to knit a shawl" ran out halfway through the cast-off row, so I had to carefully un-cast off the edge, find some wool in the house that half-way matched and cast off with that as there was no way I was buying a whole other ball of the Candy swirl. I had a few choice words to say on the subject at the time, but actually I think it worked out OK.
