In a gift exchange from a small part of Knit Group (okay 3 of us were available)---- good things happened. First was brunch (I drank coffee as a diner style menu, while yummy, was not on my diet plan) with Yo-El and Silvana. Excellent company!
I totally wussed out, completely. I had such plans to make something knitterly and fab, then when it became apparent that I couldn't do that I decided to sew something. Well, best laid plans and all my contribution was a gift certificate from a local knit shop. I was only wildly (not mildly) embarassed, even willing to let the two good girls swap gifts and slipping home with my gc quietly.
The girls are more gracious than I can say.......... and Yo-El seemed happy enough to have a bit of cash to take on a yarn expedition.
Check out the GORGEOUS tea towels gifted from Silvana! I mean really, aren't they spectacular! Vintage and fabulous in their spectacular crocheted goodness! I'm in love with them. I'm trying not to feel slugly-ier about it all, really I am.
Yo-El knit a most spectacular shawlette............... perfect for Silvana who was most appreciative! I'll have to show pics of it if Yo-El sends them over as I was cameraless today. It is delish!
I'm a lucky girl!
BTW--- I have to edit this to say that I wore Cable Luxe ... to the swap today. No one said a thing about it's funky-ness. It was ON BACKWARDS............... sheesh. Pretty soon I'll be wearing my underwear on the outside of my clothes!!!
