A Package at the Door

No sign of my wheel just yet, though my fingers were crossed all day. There was, however, a small box waiting for me when I got home this evening. Inside was my Pay It Forward surprise from Nell, containing this work of art:


This is an organic cotton face scrubbie/washcloth, but if you ask me, it's almost too pretty to use! I was not at all surprised to see that the pattern (Ravelry link) is by Norah Gaughan. Also in the package was a baggie full of delicious snickerdoodles; I can tell you they're delicious because I've already dug in. Mmmm, cookie! Thanks, Nell!

Thanks to all the action its seen the past few days, the Chevron Scarf is on the verge of FO status. Another half hour or so should see the end of the knitting and then it will be time to pull out the blocking towels. Expect photos in the next few days.

Wheel Watch 2008 continues ...

That is gorgeous! I am a pretty adamant "use the knits" person, but I don't know... that might have to do something other than wash my face. So pretty!

So... if you get that done, NO WIP's on the needles?! THAT would be crazy!

Yay! I'm glad it got to you : )

Can't wait to see your Chevron Scarf... or your new wheel, when it comes.

Crap... now I've added that to my Ravelry queue also. I don't have Stash beyond my life expectancy, but I do have projects beyond it.

What a wonderful gift and it does look almost too pretty to use... almost.
