Hello Rene'
Congratulations for all the awards you have received!

It was lovely to read your answers to those questions. Thank you so much for passing on the award to me you are so kind:)

Your scarf is looking so beautiful, isn't knitting something with wool you have spun yourself just amazing.

Have a lovely day my friend and a wonderful Christmas:)

Well deserved award. Your artistic creativity is truly inspiring. Ditto on the scarf...there is nothing better to show off those glorious lacy stitchery than your own handspun! LOVE the color richness, fitting for the holiday :D
