K is for Kite and Kindness
I coulda gone with big "DUH! K IS FOR KNITTING!" But decided against it. I got the most wonderful R.A.K surprise yesterday when I got home. Not one, but TWO R.A.K packages! Entrelac sent me this: It's a paper kite! She made it! How fragging cool is that?!? I think I'll be hanging it from the ceiling so it survives. And not only that, but Rachele sent me this: All because I made her an avatar for the knitty boards! How cute is this thing? I'm going to use it for my handmade stitchmarkers. It's so, so cute! Is it silly of me not to want to take the tag off because it's all cool with it's foreign-language self? Heh. So that, my friends, is why K is for Kindness. And Kites. Oh, and Sunday night right before Deadwood aired, I finished these: I suppose they do look more like stars once they're on the feet. Not too shabby. God I love making toe-up stockinette socks. So fast, so well fitting, and such an obvious use for all this self-striping/patterning stuff I have. The Best Foot Forward Socks from Knit Socks! Are coming along now. Slow, but I'm working on them. I'll probably start up another toe-up stockinette soon though. They make better purse/stop light knitting. What can I say? I'm an addict.
