I have so been hitting the jackpot lately. Here's the apron I received in the Ravelry swap. Isn't it too too cute? It's so cheerful and fun. And I adore its A-line shape.
This part really gets me. Look at the little twill tape tabs.
Check out my swap buddy's blog. She's very talented. You'll notice she recently went to Hawaii. Along with my apron, she sent me chocolate covered macadamia nuts from her trip. I demolished them before I had the box opened good.
Now wouldn't this great apron be enough? Yep. But it's not all.
Do you have a napkin to wipe your drool? Because this is THE most gorgeous yarn.
It's a birthday gift from Ingrid of Traveller's Yarn. It's superwash sock yarn, hand-dyed by Ingrid herself, and sent to me all the way from China! I refuse to call it a belated gift, because can a birthday present ever come too late? I think not.
I warned Ingrid that I might have to knit this into a scarf, rather than socks, because I don't think I can let it sit long enough to learn how to knit socks. You have to see these colors to believe them. They're sparkly and alive like a flame. I want to work with this yarn NOW. Thank you again, Ingrid. You dye a mean, mean skein.
One more hit.
Sorry. I couldn't help myself.
