It has been said many a time, but it bears repeating: Knitters/fiber crafters are some of the most caring, and generous people I’ve ever met. If you asked me how to spell the word ‘friend’ it’s k–k–l–m–s–t–v(each letter is a seperate link). Those are the first letters of the names of some very special people. The people who gave me THIS for my birthday!!:
OMG!! They really did it! I’m floored. I know I mentioned my wanting to get a set of the Harmony needles to replace the bamboo needles whose cords annoy the hell out of me. But I never expected anyone to actually get it for me. They all went in and did the knittyest thing! I got this hilarious card too:
Karen came up with a clever way to display all the names: It broke my heart. 🙂
I know I looked a fool dancing and giggling in the street, but girls, consider yourselves hugged tight! I don’t know what to say, Thank you is not enough.
My poor brain was aswim with ways to start NEW projects, but I’d been neglecting Icarus(stay tuned for a new podcast discussing my knitting disaster!), so I simply transfered it to my new needles! I’m using the size 5US tips and the 32″ cord. I do intend to get longer cords and some of the metal tips, but for now I’m in needle heaven!
This is the needle in Icarus. You’re looking at the purl side.
That’s it for today. The earth has made yet another revolution for me today, and I’m gonna chill out as much as possible!
To everyone sending me birthday wishes, Thank you! I love ya!
