Wow...seems strange to type the word packing when all I've been doing lately is "unpack"!
For those of you unawares, KnitPicks will not ship internationally. So...there are those of us who provide the service for our friends abroad. In this case, Hanna, has asked if I'd yarn mule her package to Finland. I'd much rather go along with said package, at the moment, but off it'll go today to her. Enjoy!!
But, that's not the only parcel that's arrived that isn't for me.
This one involves a shawl that my cousin is working on. She's made a mistake and has mailed it to me for fixing. As a new knitter she's doing remarkably well. She's even identified (with green markers) where her mistake is. It's too bad we live six hours apart! (Granted it would only be an hour away if they'd build a really big bridge across Lake Michigan so I wouldn't have to drive down and around and through Chicago!!! And for those of you who follow the link...that dashed line is the ferry route that I WISH were a bridge!!!)
Notice Hanna's parcel on the stool off in the distance...that's my reminder that today it has to go out in the mail!!! (Cause I said so...that's why!)
And knitting...well there's been some...nearly finished with the third pattern repeat on Springtime Bandit. I even took it along to the hairdresser on Monday night...I got new hair!!! The kids are calling it my "Alice" cut. I love it and couldn't be happier with it!!
Now, on with the packing!
