I returned from Northampton, MA last week, but have been too lazy to post. Well, I really I was too busy adoring this tiny baby, who was visiting last week to post. We have friends moving to the bay area next month and one of them came down for a visit to scope things out. She was kind enough to bring this tiny baby along:
Pretty much no knitting got done during their visit because when I have to pick between holding and/or mooning over a little tiny baby, the baby wins every time.
She knit me a beautiful pair of monkey socks. They are a perfect fit and the colors are oh so nice.
Along with the socks, she sent a wonderful assortment of monkey objects. A project bag, a super cute monkey sippy cup, stickers, a tiny monkey toy, a monkey magnet, monkey page markers (with a monkey on one side and a banana on the other), an adorable monkey dish towel that even has a bit of grass fringe on it. Not only did she send all this monkey stuff, she send a cuddle-worthy skein of sundara sock yarn (bird of paradise colorway), chocolate (YUM!) and a tube of cookie dough flavored lip gloss (double YUM!). In her note, Kris was kind enough to compliment Evan’s lone blog post (he was sad that no one commented on his post, so decided that none of my readers appreciated his sense of humor and never posted again). Thank you so much, Kris, for sending such a great package.
Tomorrow my family comes for a week or so visit, so I probably won’t be blogging for yet another week. I promise that one of these days I really will get around to writing about numerous finished objects, my time in Northampton, and whatnot.
