Contrary to what one might think, this is not the front of a knitted G-string. This is a swatch for my swap partner (see below). I was to swatch the pattern I picked for her and then post it on Ravelry. I may have messed up because I am thinking I should have sent it to he. I don’t know. Anyway, it is the end of the tie on the Clementine Shawl in the summer IK 2007. The pattern in so sweet that I may have to make one too. It looks like a pretty quick knit. It is a mini-shawl or shawlette. I’m not sure I would where it as a shawl, but i might make a nice bunchy scarf. One more thing to add to my ever expanding list of things to make!
This is my swap package from Piercy in the monthly swap group I am in in on Ravelry. Even though it is monthly, I don’t participate every month. With all that has gone on this year, I just have not been able to invest the time that the swaps deserve. This time I really waned to be in because it was a lace swap. I had a great time picking out my swap partners yarn and goodies….but I have to say, Opening this package was even better!
I have been lusting after this yarn called Dream in Color. All of you knitters know what I’m talking about…you non-knitters, let’s just say it’s a luxury car. Anyway, every time I try to buy it, it is sold out. This is some hot yarn. So, imagine my total and utter surprise when I opened the package to find Dream in Color in a color that is absolutely what I would have picked! In addition to that there was Blue Sky Skinny Dyed cotton with a note on it that it was for the Preemie Project! There is a pattern for the yarn too. Piercy did an amazing job picking out colors, patterns and really paying attention to what was going on with me. She even put a note in saying she hopes we get settled in our new house so I can knit!
This was such a lovely suprise and a sorely needed one. She lifted my spirits and made me feel special. I sure hope that my swap partner feels the same about her package.
