When I got to Ann’s on Saturday, I was surprised to find a lovely gift from Orli of Inspirations and her adorable little boy Gil. Is that not the cutest tea towel? And some yummy sweets. There were some McVities Milk Chocolate Digestives but Kevin opened them on Sunday and between he, Cam and I–they are gone! But not forgotten. Thanks Orli! Your kindness and thoughtfulness are very appreciated.
I have sewn up that little Sirdar sweater. It needs a dip and buttons. And I have been thinking ahead to the other baby sweaters I need to knit. I like this little Debbie Bliss ribbed sweater in the Special Knits book. Googling, I came across a really sweet version of it on SO MUCH YARN, SO LITTLE TIME! Scroll down to March 14. Of course, I immediately ordered some yarn from handpaintedyarn.com. Shipping, however, is taking a while. So, when my mom told me Flying Fingers was having a sale on certain colors of Manos…I decided to check it out. I placed that order on Tuesday afternoon. It arrived on Wednesday morning. It came in a very nice box, wrapped in tissue paper with a cute, handwritten postcard. I was very impressed.
Now, I do plan to knit one in the Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran. But I have held off on that till Granny and I go on our field trip. Yup, you heard me right! A field trip. We are going to the Knitting Fever wharehouse. Do you think they have shopping carts? Speaking of Granny…she called yesterday to tell me 16 boxes of yarn had been delivered! Holy Smoke! Lots and lots of Lopi…and goodness knows what else!
