I received from my fantastic partner o0IrishEyes0o! I absolutely love everything - they are very much my style, and really warm to boot. Cheesy

Now, pictures:



Action shot of the cowl itself. Please excuse my messy hair and dopey expression. Tongue It's super warm and I love the colours. And it has buttons! Eee, I love buttons! Especially when they look like gears. Cheesy



Here you can see the buttons a bit better. Also, note how the end overlaps - that covers the gap between my coat and the cowl perfectly. How clever!



I also got a hat. It's really pretty - the yarn has a subtle shimmer, and the swirly pattern is fantastic. It's a tiny bit big on me, mostly because I have an unreasonably small head. I love it anyway. Smiley



Better shot of the stitch pattern.



And finally, cute little wristwarmers. They are really thick and warm. I'm actually wearing them right now. Cheesy I adore them.

There was also a tonne of chocolate with peanut butter, which we don't get here. I have a feeling that won't last long. Wink

Thank you so much, IrishEyes! I love everything and know it'll come in very handy now that we finally have freezing temperatures again. This package was a fantastic Christmas present. I hope you get my package soon and like it as much as I liked mine. (I also hope my advance Christmas package gets there soon. Bloody postal service.)

Heehee.  I didn't even get to post teasers!  I'm so glad you caught the gear buttons Smiley  They were an ebay find that once I saw them I KNEW they had to be on your cowl Smiley

I got my goodiessss Cheesy
when I opened the package the first thing I noticed was that it smelt like chocolate peppermint. and to my ecstatic surprise there was some! it is DE.LI.COUS!! it's just as good as the ghiradelli stuff btw. how'd you make it?

everything but the cat toy and the candy (please excuse the sleepy expression on my cat's face lol)


the lovely cowl/scoodie with sparkly stars Cheesy

 
I love the button you used (and as an added bonus my kitty's toes XD)


Micah wearing the scoodie


and she knitted Micah a cat toy


as soon as I shook the ball and it jingled he came running and was playing with it. he picked it up in his mouth and carried it off (that means he loves it!) and he was pawing at, it smelled his paw then started licking it (maybe it tasted like chocolate peppermint?)

In completely unrelated news, it's Christmas! There's snow! Yay! (I'm kind of a Christmas person, don't know if you could tell. Tongue )

Yay! I'm glad you liked everything  Grin Mine should get here today!!
Your kitty is so cute, I'm glad he liked his toy.

Oh, and the peppermint bark was reeeally easy to make. Just melt some chocolate (very carefully, double boiler is best but you can do it in the microwave. Just don't burn it!). I added a little peppermint oil to the chocolate after it was melted. Then spread the chocolate on a pan lined with wax paper and sprinkle crushed candy canes on top. You have to push them down a little to get them to stick. But, thats it! Just stick it in the fridge to cool down and break into pieces.

Happy Christmas!

First of all, that hood is really cute (as well is kitty).

I was trying to think of what to make my sisters family that wouldn't require a ton of work and I already have crushed candy canes around.  Yay!!! I made this last year (with white chocolate) and forgot all about it.  Thanks for bringing it up.
