Thank goodness I have some friends at work to knit with - we meet at least twice a week at lunchtime to knit. I wish I could knit at work other times - like during some of those long meetings where my mind wanders to every subject but what is being discussed (hmmm... what do I need at the grocery store, what color would I like to order of that Hanne Falkenberg Mermaid kit, if I get that kit, is it excessive to also buy the materials for Ingeborg, you know - stuff like that).
I finished the top down pullover and here it is next to the first one I made several years ago.
Even as I post this picture, I am ripping out the lower part of the sleeves since my daughter declared they were too tight. I couldn't do this last night while watching part of the latest Harry Potter movie because she wanted to sleep with the sweater. That request usually happens when she gets a new hand knit. Does anyone else's kids do this?
Thanks again to my secret pal - the Fleece Artist roving is lovely as are the handmade stitch markers.
She included some of my favorite jelly beans, some wonderfully fragrant candles (Spiced Pear - yummy), a notepad and some goodies for my daughter. I haven't given them to her yet, as I usually save things for a time when I really need to bring them out - those whiny moments when she doesn't know what to do.
