No really, I am. The knitting group I’m ‘involved’ with recently had a Festivus Miracle Swap o’ rama. I’m sure I mentioned it. Anyway, I was spoiled like mad by the incredibly talented Lauren. She has these mad knitting skills and creates wonderful fine lace doilies, knit ones. Now I’ve crocheted doilies, but the thought of knitting something that fine and particular sort of makes my eyes go crossed. Lauren, she just shrugs and says, “Meh, no problem.” Like I said, mad knitting skills.
Wanna see what she created for me? It’s called Purple Hannah, I love that name.
Isn’t it lovely? Wanna see a closeup?
How beautiful is that? I’m so smitten. Oh, and it didn’t hurt that there was luscious chocolate in the package. ;) Lauren also knit me a Ballband dishcloth which is wonderful because I’ve wanted one for ages. Oh, and see the pretty blue bag with the kitties on it? Perfect for a sock on the go project.
Hey! You know what this means? I have an empty project bag. I can cast on a new sock if I have a project bag to put it in! Score.
Thank you so much Lauren! It was really lovely to be spoiled by someone of your knitting calibre. I love it all and I especially love that you would take so much of your time to create something so lovely for me. You rock! I really hope I get to spoil you at next year’s swap.
I also go my marks back for my course, pulled a B+. Ta da, humanities breadth requirements now successfully met. I can now wander back to my crim/psych/soc classes where I belong.
