Somethings I have grown to learn about knitters:
They are kind, generous of their time and talents, and they are some of the sweetest people on earth. In fact, tonight when I was at the post office waiting in line, and I sneezed, and the woman behind me said "Bless you" my first thought was "I wonder if she's a knitter."
This kindness and generosity was made no more apparent than when one of my knitty friends, Kyle had a Pay it Forward blog post. Someone had done something kind for him, so he was "paying it forward." And today when I checked my mail, I received his lovely handknit gift, just for me!!!
Tripsie thinks it smells like maybe Kyle has a pet ;)
(she got impatient for the flash - durn diva).
His picture does this gorgeous scarf much more justice than mine, so I hope he doesn't mind if I use it (no worries, I was very good and never once peeked).
Not only is it pretty (and PURPLE!!) but it is also the softest yarn I've ever felt. Now I just hope it gets cold enough to wear it soon :)
He also included some lovely notecards, which are available in his shop. Please note that a portion of the sale of these cards goes to benefit a no-kill animal sanctuary in Southern California so please check them out!
Thank you Kyle!!!
Now its my turn. Who would like something knit just for them, by me? I can't promise how long it'll take (It is Socktober after all)
Speaking of Socktober, here's my sock after the 3rd pattern repeat.
