I was also going to tell you about our little Lord Fauntleroy and how his father was truly ready to kill his mother for dressing him in tights and something that almost resembled a dress.....hehe. I had to beg to differ with his father........I adored the outfit!
Then of course there were the 2 little princesses, dressed in the gifts of the hand. One in a cast and the other hating to have her picture taken. Thankfully both girls LOVED their gifts. McKayla in her Debbie Bliss shrug and Hannah in her Dancing Leaves Shawl.
And the gloves........oh the gloves! I had a post all about the pains and joys of knitting needles with this project. Actually, I may still do that, next week, as I discovered much about what I like and do not like about different needles. Stacey was very pleased with her new gloves. Whew.....I have tossed Koigu in the washer and dryer before with good results........these gloves in Stacey's house will need that quality..(past sweaters now fit Barbie)
Then the saga of the pointy toed sock. I love Nancy Bush's patterns, but this toe just did NOT work for me. I will post about these socks when I finish the mate.......and we all know how that goes. Hopefully it will be before spring.....LOL. Actually, I LOVE the socks, but I have pulled them out enough times that I could have knit both pairs and probably another pair by now......as I said.....OY VEY!
Let's see...........there was a crazy trip into Boston for a surprise, but now that I found out about the ABC along, I am going to save that for next week, because it is an "A" of a post. Then there is the silk roving and tea, and the newly dyed red drops......and everyone must have sensed that my bunnies were dropping their coats as my carder is working overtime.....and........and.........and.....YIKES!!
Knowing that I won't get to posting again until next week, I want to thank all of you for your friendship and kindness over the last year and I hope that you all forgive me for my slack in responding to comments this past week. Truly I had the best of intentions and no time. I can't tell you how much I have enjoyed getting to know so many of you out in blogland......it has meant so much to me and has made my world a nicer place! I hope that you all have a healthy, wealthy and fibery New Year!!
