I will warn you right now that you are going to be jealous of the crafty gifts that I got in the mail today from my friend Dawn. Sorry. (But not really, cause these gifts are awesome.)
These are for my birthday and Christmas, which we all know were both in December. Dawn feels bad that these gifts are late, but here's what I have to say to that: Gifts in February?! Bring it ON!
Also, these gifts were well worth the wait! Are you ready to see the goods?!
The first is a little project bag that I can use to carry knitting around. Check the awesome skull-y print:
There's even a sweet-ass tattoo print inside:
And inside of that bag... was a project! She sent me some wonderful yarn (75% Superwash wool/25% nylon -- it's soft!)
And a pattern for a scarf that I could not get a good picture of, but it's called the "Crazy Mitred Scarf" which I love, because she is Canadian and they spell "miter" like "mitre" so "mitered" becomes "mitred" (all of those words are now starting to look really weird).
But the really super-duper awesome gift is this totally fantastic apron that she made for me. My photos do not do it justice, but:
It has ruffles! And tomatoes! It's a ruffled, tomato apron! Ack! I have died and gone to heaven! (I should post photos of the tomato kitchen someday... really, I should.)
It even makes a sweet little bow in the back (I love the fabric that the tie is made of):
Isn't it cuuuute? (In case you couldn't tell, I'm pretty pleased with it. Thanks, Dawn!)
Sorry to make you jealous, but I just had to share. Crafty friends rule!
