Gaylen came up with this idea, and it is surely a little Monday today. Sissy was still stressed last night, so we were up and down and sleep was a precious commodity. Don’t look for any news about Gretchen though; she won’t be ready until somewhere between five and eight tonight.
So, more on my blues busting cocoa swap package… The rich, minty cocoa is hiding on the right in the back, under the little sheepy. (More on that later.) In the nice, big mug next to it are more rosewood needles, and Gretchen has learned her lesson and leaves my needles alone now, so these will be safe! There are even his ‘n hers treats, so the next cold night, we’ll snuggle up and I’ll stir my mint chocolate sticks in my cocoa while the Knight munches on some buttery pastries.
Now, for the ooooh factors!
One of the requirements for the swap was a blues busting buddy. Darcy knitted this cute, soft sheepy for me. He’s on a keychain, so he can travel and make himself useful. I actually have a plan for him already, so he’ll be pressed into service very soon, maybe even tonight!
Then, there’s the Tudora neckwarmer. You can find more information about both projects HERE, on Darcy’s project page on Ravelry. It’s very soft and very warm, which means I won’t be wearing it this week with our big heatwave!
Thanks Darcy, for spoiling us all so nicely!
I’ve received a couple of awards lately too, and PLEASE don’t misinterpret my silence as disinterest. I heartily appreciate them, but my head is in a fog, and as MJ put it, my heart is torn in two, with each of the fur-girls!
Now, I’m going to go clean up the lunch MJ made us, and resist the urge to call and check on Gretchen.
