Wee Goodies

This is a post about the finished objects of others.

First up is an adorable needle holder book made for me by my friend, Hilary. These books are super cute and very useful, and my needles were very happy to move out of the envelope that was their former residence and into the felt pages of this lovely book. Thank you Hilary!

Hello, I am a beautiful and functional needle book. Take a moment to admire the art on the cover. It was created by Hilary with scraps of wool and thread.

Next, is a lovely hat by Raul. It is based on the hat he made previously - he liked it so much that he wanted to make one for his darling mom. So Myriam, this is for you! We are planning a trip to a cooler climate this summer, and Raul did not want you to be cold.

As before - yarn is Blue Sky Alpaca bulky, knitted up on size 15 needles.

So, some serious excitement is quickly approaching. On Monday we find out IF we matched, and on Thursday, we find out WHERE we matched. Keep you posted!

What a good idea, the needle book! I have stuck mine in a pincushion in my big sewing basket.

Good job on the hat Raul! I'm totally impressed and I know your mom will be also.

Can't wait to hear about the 'match'. Much love to you both.

WOW on the match! I fail to understand why you find out "if" on Monday, and then have to wait 3 days to find out "where". I feel like the medical world creates lots of situations to keep levels of anxiety as high as possible for as long as possible. Sheesh.
