OH MY GOSH EVERYONE I’M SO FREAKING HAPPY RIGHT NOW.
So, I’m taking a slight break from my usual programming to just squee about the amazing knitting-related gifts I’ve received from family and friends so far:
- Two skeins of Stärke Power Kraft Energy sockenwolle sock yarn in a peachish/grayish colorway and a purple/green colorway (two of my favorite colorways, though I have to say the latter is my favorite) from my good friend Ray (featured here wearing the Picholine hat I made for them)
- A yarn bowl Ray’s dad made in a ceramics experiment; he basically thought “Hey, I wanna try making something new. Let’s make yarn bowls for our knitting relatives” and Ray sorta volunteered me as a recipient of one of these. I HAVE BEEN TRYING TO GET ONE OF THESE FOR SO LONG YOU HAVE NO IDEA. I ROUTINELY SWOON OVER THE ONES ON ETSY LISTINGS.
- I’m also an aspiring designer (I have many design ideas but have no idea really how to go through with them) so my mom got me THREE knitwear design books and a fashion sketchpad.
I’M SO HAPPY RIGHT NOW AAAH THESE ARE THE BEST AND I AM SQUEEING SO HARD!
