A Gift From A Friend!

I got home tonight after a shopping trip for items for the trip to Portland in August (small toiletries, a pair of capis, a photo card, you know the drill) and on my doorstep was a package!

I'd been warned "something" was coming, but I didn't know what. My "partner in crime" on this trip is Dianne and she'd heard me say that I was looking at something special for travel knitting...a shawl, in fact...out of a lovely colorway from Blue Moon:
"Beached" in BFL Sport. Isn't it gorgeous? Diane, you're the sweetest thing - thank you so much!
The colors are a tad dark in these photos...but in real life, they're marvelous - the blue is perfect for denim jeans, the khaki? Well, it's perfect for khakis. The purple/rose? (sigh) It's ME. Dianne, you're such a dear! And for those who don't know? Dianne is involved in a large charity knitting project for Sock Summit - involving multiple little socks for Afghans for Afghans, as well as co-hostessing the Sedalia Fiber Festival, and handling multiple family commitments. She is a gem, and I'm very lucky, not just to call her traveling companion and "roomie" at Sock Summit, but especially to call her FRIEND.

I'm promising myself a start date for the shawl, as it will be on the needles, probably, for this trip to Sock Summit 2009. I'm going to start knitting it on my birthday - July 11.

The perfect date to start knitting with a gift - and great airplane knitting!

Did you say "plain knitting" Mommie? What's that?

Or did you say "Plane knitting?" I don't like the sound of PLANE.

You're not leaving me, are you?

Lovely yarn, and what a joy to contemplate the lace it will become. Enjoy!

Oh no! You're not leaving Meezer to play with yarn, are you?

Oh well. That's a beautiful skein to play with on the plane.

Ooh, it's gorgeous! I love that colorway... I can tell I'm going to have to make a couple of these shawls, I think ;)

That is a beautiful and thoughtful gift! Looking forward to seeing it knit up. You may have to share it with the Meezer to make up for leaving her.

Namaste

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
