Ok guys, so I knew already that my cousin, bestest friend, (possible twin separated at birth) and co-blogger loved me but I don't know that I knew she loved me quite this much. She sent me a package with so many gifts! Wanna see?
Then get out of here, I'm showing off! :)
For those of you that stayed... hi!! Ok, first, she made me not one, but TWO pairs of socks! The first are out of knitpicks bare that I dyed myself a long time ago, but the yarn got tangled and I couldn't get it undone, so I sent it to her and told her if she could untangle it, she could have it. I had NO IDEA she made these from it!
I LOVE them!! They're her own pattern, and you can't see in the pic very good, but they have little tiny cables. I tried, unsuccessfully, to get a picture of the cables. My camera hates red so... but they're there, trust me, and they're GORGEOUS. Then she made me these, which I didn't even know about.
She said that she made them on a day when I was working and she missed me, so she went to her lys to buy yarn so she could make them for me! Am I the most special person ever or what?
A long time ago, she made me a Kiri, and she had never been able to send it to me (shipping from Canada to America in a box can get expensive) and I got it too!
It has beads on the bottom that are unphotographable, but they're so pretty. It's so warm. I know cause I'm wearing it.
Also recently, she went on a dishcloth making extravaganza, and I got three dishcloths from that! :)
But wait, there's more! She bought me Rio De La Plata yarn, which is kinda like malabrigo only not quite as soft, but still yummy, in a pretty yellow color, and some yarn I didn't know about, it's called Diamond yarn luxury collection fancy free, and I had never heard of it but I LOVE it, it's fingering weight and it has ALPACA in it. It's the red stuff in this picture.
Also in that picture is a little journal, and a bookmark with a little chocolate lab puppy on it, and if you can't read it, it says "Stop and Smell the roses."
But, I saved possibly my favorite part for last. No, that's not true. I don't have a favorite part of this package. I love it all equally. Anyway, she made me a yellow baby hoodie, and a crocheted yellow baby blanket!!
I don't know what the pattern for the hoodie is, but I think the blanket is the tiramisu pattern. I only remembered that because she kept saying "you know, it's a kind of dessert?" :) Here's a better pic of the blanket.
Angie? You are the BEST. EVER. I love you!!!!!!!!
