From across the ocean

I was tickled pink when my son-in-law handed me this box that the mailman had delivered. It was a package sent from Petra over in Germany. If you love to knit you really need to check out Petra's blog http://strickfee-pe.blogspot.com/. She does such beautiful work, and I love all of her socks that she makes! I do not know how to knit, I only learned crochet in school over in Germany. We left before the class of knitting which I always feel sad about since there are so many beautiful things you can do with those pair of needles!!
A cute card on top with socks!

Everything was wrapped so pretty, and I love, just love that heart shape box too!

Socks for Me!!! They fit perfect Petra! The design on them are soooo pretty. I'm sure Petra can whip up a pair of socks in no time. The thing about store bought socks these days is that they just don't last.

A few other goodies, some bath salts, a handmade soap, and a very favorite of mine....tea!

Thank you so much Petra! Now I will get myself in gear, put on my German socks, and go show them off!!!

Oh dear!!!!
You said the dreaded combination of words that distract me totally:


I can't visit her site right now, but when I get my work done....oooooooo...off I go!
Lovely lovely socks you snagged there! And you're right, store bought socks are not worth bringing home. Plus handknits feel soooooo good! :)
Lucky you!

Absolutely beautiful! I've visited Petra's site and it is absolutely awesome what she does with yarn! Glad for your box from across the ocean, Ulrike! And it was wonderful to have you stop by today. I've missed you! ~hugs and a smile~

Hi Ulrike, how fun to receive such a nice gift... I love the colors of your new socks, they look so soft and warm... You are right, most storebought socks don't last long at all, at least for me they don't! xoxo Julie Marie PS When I was a little girl, my mama always darned our socks and we wore them forever!

Ulrike I have to agree with you, Petra is very, very talented! She knits some of the most amazing things, her scarfs are one of a kind. How nice of her to send you all those goodies!

Ganz, ganz liebe Grüße, Petra
