I’m getting more behind every day, so I’m going to double or even triple up here today.
Last week, Two weeks ago, when Ann and HRH stopped by, she also brought the last of the Wollmeise club we shared. I had a very hard time choosing between the colorways (there are two skeins in every shipment), but eventually settled on another blue. I still haven’t knitted with any of the Wollmeise yet, but I hear that it really is suited for socks moreso than shawls or scarves. I just might have to try this yarn with this pattern…
Last week, my third Embrace the Lace Club kit arrived. Really, no one does a club kit like Woolgirl. Every last detail is so very carefully thought out. It’s more expensive than my sock club, but WOW! the stuff I get with it!
It would take all day for me to show you EVERYTHING, and the extras in this kit really hit home with me so I’d love to share them all with you, but in the interest of time, just look at this one item as a symbol of the thoughtful details that go into everything in each kit.
I need to bring the taffy in for MJ. As much as I love all things beach, I’m not crazy about taffy. But shells! Those shells were collected by hand, not just purchased in bulk from some online source.
Since the club this year is based on the Virtues, I should mention that this month’s theme is FAITH. For me, I could tie most any of the virtues to the beach, because it really is where my spirit is restored, but it’s fun seeing how the designers and Woolgirl take each virtue and develop a kit.
More hot green? You betcha’, but it’s not the FO report I owe you. I’m blessed with some of the best friends ever.
Wendy sent me a happy little friendship package! Her timing was perfect; I really needed a distraction on the day it arrived. She had no way of knowing that the Fixation she sent was the same colorway I’d picked up more than once, but put back because I have Fixation in my stash already… The bath crystals smell so sweet! I had a hard time keeping the dogs from the little packet because the scent is soooo tempting! Wendy always is sending/bringing me tea, so I laughed when I saw a notepad with tea attached. Perfect!
You have to see the Dog Days of Summer goodies Wendy shared! There’s a whole mess of the little flipflops, which I intend to use as stitch markers, I think… And I always have a tube of lip balm within arm’s reach, so as long as Sissy doesn’t find it and eat it, I’ll enjoy that too. Thank you, Wendy. It’s been too long; we need another get-together!
How goes your one-day-closer to Friday? My brother inlaw insists it is another Monday, but I’m not feeling that, thankfully!
