Loot!


I got a package from my very best friend today! It was the pick-me-up I've been needing. November is really the toughest month for me. Seasonal depression and holiday pressures start full force at this time a year.



For those of you following along at home, those are mother/daughter Calorimetry head wraps. She also fulled an orange bag for me. (I have a thing for bright, happy colors.)
I also got some books. I was really excited to get Vogue Sewing. There is so much information in this book. It's full of fiber content, fit, figure type, seam finishes, types of pockets, etc., etc., etc... I also got a copy of Hookorama. A lot of the patterns are strange, but there is a pattern for a moth in there. I have a thing for moths. I have a tattoo of Mothra. Keep your friends close and your enemies closer. I plan to crochet some lavender moth repellent sachets with this pattern. It was a private little thrill for me. That's one of the great things about have a best, best friend.
Isabel got a signed copy of The Kids' Knitting Notebook. It's adorable. There are pockets for swatches, cute projects, and a lot of ways to document a child's learning process. Iz is at the point that she can crochet a chain--she can't wait to knit.

Making your November a little bit sweeter or a little bit brighter is what best friends are for.

I hope you like everthing I sent you, I know I didn't send much in the way of knitted stuff, and the orange bag definitly was created using Lamb's Pride a la Cat Hair, but I thought you would enjoy it.

I love you and miss you and think of you all the time.
