I am blessed to have a special group of friends who accept me - for the me I am. As a team, we focus on the strengths of each other and work toward a common purpose. Not a month goes by without these inspirational folks teaching me something new and of value. New is one thing. We all need a bit of new now and again. Ah - but new AND valuable is a treasure for sure.
Although several of these friends do in fact know an SSK from a K2tog, most have no clue about the mysteries that can be had from just manipulating the knit and the purl. But they are a sneaky lot for certain. Clearly there is a ring leader amongst them. Someone lurked about on this blog and made secretive contact with my beloved Knit 'n Stitch and planned a huge surprise. And, just to top it off, Linda and Sue at KNS never let on that something was in the works.
Like a dream, I was gifted a certificate that let me run wild through a yarn store! Can you imagine?
Look here: two new Addi Turbo's, two new circs for hats, brand new Chibis that are not lost between the sofa cushions, a mimi yarn caddy, blocking wires with unbent t-pins, 1200+ yds of Berroco Vintage, 3 skeins of Mountain View Crazyfoot, a lovely hank of Mushishi and my very own copy of Loop-d-Loop for inspiration.
Oh my. The eyes are still a bit misty.
So, to my team members on the Board, thank you for accepting me - yarn and all.
