wwkip and a lovely gift.



well first things first. kent sent me a lovely pack with great green tea with a coconut scent and a lovely wild blackberry honey. the photo is awful but the tea is so good i couldn't wait for my camera to behave in order to take a more arty picture. everything was nicely wrapped up in red paper and i am not surprised since kent seems so meticulous with everything he does. i am looking sooo much forward to seeing his finished ssac since i am sure it will look like a dream.
secondly i pulled myself together and went to wwkip day yesterday. i always find it hard to go to such things on my own. but i had promised myself to go and see what it is like. it was a lot of knitting ladies have a great day together knitting (and talking) in public. there was a lot of sock knitting and bag knitting. i had hoped to see more people wearing finished objects but i guess it was a little too warm for that. i wore my meg swansen cardi and it got a really nice reception as did the na craga i am knitting. talking about na craga. i actually think i will finish it this week but i wonder if it will be too warm for any climate in these times of global warming. other wise it is a beautiful sculpture to hang on the wall.......

Glad you made it out to knit.
I'm sure you'll find a use for Na Craga somehow, I can't wait to see it!

Thats the problem with the Aran sweaters. Theyre beautiful to look at, but i cannot think of wearing them more than 2 days a year...

Oh, it gets cold here. I was very grateful for my Aran the past two winters, especially since I don't like to keep the house very warm.
