Every knitter, when they are planning a little getaway, spends a great deal of time deciding which project(s) will go along. Admit it, there are many of you who put more thought into which knitting project you'll pack, than clothes or toiletries. Nova has been good enough to eliminate all of that consternation for me. A package arrived from her yesterday, packed with goodies. The SuiBui yarn will be coming along on a little golf-r&r-romantic getaway trip that DH and I are taking this weekend.
Note the fabulous fishy pouch, with its jazzy orange lining and button. Nova mad it. I love it.
There is also delicious blueberry jam. There were chocolates, but um, they didn't last long enough for the photo shoot. Nova also included a little archival box. It is screaming for me to make many, many tiny drawings to store in it. I can't let all of that acid-free goodness go to waste now can I? I won all of this in a blog contest she had a few weeks back. Lucky me!!
Thank you Nova! Both balls of the ShiBui are now wound and packed.
As for my trip. This will not be joining us:
Let me tell you, at 3, 4 and 5, the kid showed such potential. Now he is a Guitar Hero prodigy.
And yes, that is my silk-merino Shetland Triangle that he has his foot on. Bad boy.
At least I have Nova's goodies and my new skills to distract me from sixteen year old apathy.
I took a crochet class at The Point this week. We learned all of the basic stitches, then I came home and took out my Stitch and Bitch Crochet book and worked out how to make some flowers. Why crochet you ask? Well have you seen this. Don't click the link if you don't want to become obsessed with crochet too!
