The unfailing kindness of (most) of the knit-blog community never ceases to amaze me. Your comments on my current projects and cheerful thoughts brighten my day. I know I don't reply to each of you individually, but know that I treasure your words and look forward to coming home each day to check my comments!
Also hot - gifts! I was the lucky "winner" of aThe Great Monday Give-away item a few weeks ago - and I got my "gift" this week.
It's a lovely vintage pink cardi in a horseshoe(?) lace pattern. It fits great and I wore to it work already once this week! Ms. Bugheart also included a darling handmade flower pin and a card that reads "I don't think he's wearing any underwear!".
I'm very excited to point you to the Summer IK preview! It looks pretty good - there are a few items I can't wait to knit up!
I don't mean to be a downer, or be perceived to be a bitch, but this really hurt my heart. I left a comment today on a blog I have read for over a year (but rarely comment on), and received this response:
If you use the search feature of my blog (on the sidebar near the top) and search for *** you will see that I've used *** many, many times in the past. So, I obviously know about ***. Please take the time to know a blogger before leaving (unsolicited) suggestions. (Identifying details have been removed).
Thank goodness this response is the first of it's kind I've received. Otherwise it might put me off the knit-blog world completely.
To distract you, (and to end on a high note!) a little quiz. My neighbors are strange. They leave their 500 million watt porch light on all night (it shines right into our bedroom window). One member of the family was arrested a few weeks ago (he's back). I saw this in their driveway this week. What is it?
No, I'm not going to tell who it was. Please don't guess in the comments either. Thank you for all of your positive words. Go make someone else smile for me, OK?
