Wiping the tears away....

About a month ago, I came across a blogger that was in need of a row counter. Normally this would just mean a trip to the LYS....but see this blogger lives in ICELAND! So I offered to send her one in the mail. No big deal....

Of course I couldn't just send a row counter. I sent her some of my stitch markers and some sock yarn, Brown sheep's Wildfote. I also just sent some to my SP and she flipped over it (i'm safe saying this because I am SURE my SP has never even heard of me). Well, my Icelandic friend got her package and she wrote a post that made me cry.....and cry....and cry. My darling daughter even came over and gave me a hug and told me everything was ok :-) It sure makes me feel good to make someone else happy! Go read her blog.....she is an amazing knitter.

On the knitting front, I have finished my first waving lace sock and have started on the second. I'll be posting pictures of it tomorrow. I'm getting nervous that my pal won't like them......SO I just want to say that if the knitter that is knitting ME socks is reading.....I will LOVE anything you send :-)

Hi Jenn-

What a nice thing to do!! Awesome RAOK!
Thanks for the compliments on my Kerchief. You can get the KIT at www.foxyknits.com
The pattern is not sold seperately, you have to buy a kit that comes with one skein of Koigu, complimentary beads and the pattern in a plastic sleeve.

Hope this helps, thanks for visiting!

Isn't it amazing how spoiled we are here...my SP is in South Africa, and she desperately wanted Kool-Aid and bamboo needles, things found in abundance where I live!
