And I’m not going to work! Yay!
The bad news is the reason I’m not going to work is because I have a dentist appointment, but it’s no big deal — just a check-up.
In wonderful giftie news . . .
These from Mary, of Knitting Notes. (If you’ve never visited Mary’s blog, I encourage you to do so — she always has such great photos!)
Mary was kind enough to send me a pair of Shaun the Sheep socks (which I happen to collect) and a set of pillowcases with little Norwegian sweaters, caps, and mittens on them. They are totally adorable! And of course so appropriate for me!
On Saturday, I got:
These wonderful gifts are from Laura, or as you may know her “Laurable,” a frequent poster to my blog. A cute jigsaw puzzle picturing kittens in cowboy boots, and a lovely little ornament. The photo of the ornament isn’t the bast, but you might be able to tell that Laura put a photo of Izzy in it! That was so sweet and Izzy and I both appreciate it very much.
This is the “before” photo — a pair of “fuzzy feet” slippers for me to felt. These were knitted by Kate, who we all know and love. The pattern is from the latest issue of Knitty — Theresa’s design called “Fuzzy Feet.” I’m gonna felt ’em today, so watch for the “after” photo in tomorrow’s blog entry.
Mary, Laura, and Kate . . . thank you so much to each one of you! You all have made my weekend wonderful.
Virgin sweater update
I couldn’t close this blog entry without even mentioning the virgin sweater, could I? I’m plugging along on the second sleeve. Barring any unfoprtunate incidents, it’ll be done sometime this week. Yay!
