You know, during my months of suffering from my Knitting Nojo affliction, I was undeservedly blessed by the kindness of blog friends.
First off, tiennie. Everyone knows that tiennie is a true Wonder Woman. She is an amazing knitter (how she knits socks so fast, I will never understand), mother, wife, and person. I have just loved getting to know her through her blog. So I was so excited when I won one of ther contests and I got these lovelies in the mail.
Two skeins of Heritage sock yarn from Cascade Yarns. I will try to do this yarn justice and make some socks that tiennie herself would be proud of.
And then, of course, there is Rachel. She is truly is the Happy College Knitter. I knew we would be blog friends when I discovered we share a love for the same TV shows (Pushing Daisies, Arrested Development), Ysolda Teague patterns, and slouchy berets. Seriously, it is a sickness. If it is slouchy and beret, chances are that one of us will knit it.
So of course, when I won a special prize from her blog contest, I was thrilled when I got this...
Fabulous chocolate truffles, and of course, a slouchy beret. And not just any slouchy beret, but Rose Red by Ysolda Teague (ravelry link). Sigh, Rachel, you know me soooo well.
So thank you blog friends for your thoughtful pressies, your blogs, and just being you!
