default The source of all my power

This mornings mail brought to me a wonderful surprise. My lovely mum, an obsessive and very talented knitter, made and sent me this. It is pure organic Herdwick wool and I love it. Thank you mummy.

There is a particular smell to Herdwick wool, as soon as I opened the package it just overwhelmed me me with sense memories, so wonderful

It looks especially good with the plain white teapot - lovely!
