Remember, remember

Hi everyone!
My post today has 3 parts to it.
Part 1
Christmas gift number 2:
Following on from my first christmas gift post last week, here is another one.
This one was made to order. I got a request to make a shawl for the friend of a family member and this is what I made.
It's the Elise pattern again and the yarn is merino angora. The softest yarn in the world!
Part 2
I've been winding up some skeins of yarn into balls....and taking photos of it :)
I can't wait to start making something with this yarn.
It's a silk dk blend and the colours are so bright. I've got 200g of it and I'm thinking about making a scarf with it. What would you suggest?
Today (or tonight) is Bonfire Night. Guy Fawkes night is commemorated in the UK to remember the failed plot to kill King James in the House of Lords.
Remember, remember the 5th of November.
I have always loved the celebration of Bonfire Night and it is the one day of the year I really miss 'home'.
This made me start to look  through some photos i took when visiting England this summer and have made a few flower montages to show you:
All of the photos were taken in my parents garden.
Tomorrow my blog will be one year old! I can't believe how quickly the time has flown since I started blogging.
I will be holding my first ever giveaway to celebrate my blogiversary, so check back tomorrow so see what the prize will be!
Have a lovely day!
