I have been remiss! Since school started, I suddenly have a life, but the result is that I have not kept current with my knitting blog.
First, Rhonda has revealed herself as my very kind and color-savvy secret pal from the One Skein project this summer. I am way too fortunate! These are the gifts she sent me this week. First she made the felted purse from the book (now how did she know I would love that shade of teal???). See that totally cool clasp? It's a silver button, the likes of which I've never seen but am really curious about, and a short string of seed beads that loops around the flower to close the clutch. I can't wait to use this purse.
But WAIT! THERE'S MORE! She sent me a skein of my beloved Karaoke, in shades of blues and teals, that knocks my socks off. See how I have already started a project with it (in the time I don't actually have). I am making a soft, stretchy hat. Don't know if I'll be able to part with it! :^)
Rhonda also sent me a sweet card with a really cool knitting basket sticker; this goes with me to school tomorrow so I can adorn my desk bulletin board. Anyway, thanks, Pal! In a minute, I'm going to check out her blog to see what SHE likes to knit.
Almost done with the secret project that is now actually a LATE project. I will have the recipient model it when I give it to her later today. Again, I am knitting with time I don't actually have. But it has been so much fun, and I have made enough mistakes that I feel especially prepared now to deal with the unexpected. I have also watched a shocking number of episodes of Law and Order. Why is all this so much more attractive than grading student exams??
Well, cheerio! Happy knitting. See you soon.
