You can't see in the photo very well, but the apron has "cloves", "nutmeg", and "ginger" embrodered on the pockets. For some strange reason, I was at Target the other day and I say they had some adorable retro aprons and I was tempted to get myself one, but then stopped and thought, "Why? Would I really wear it?" Answer, "No, but I really want one." I talked myself down... and I'm glad that I did! I don't know what I would do with two! However, I'm now planning on doing some bakeing for this weekend and I'll be trying out the apron. Included in the package was also a herb garden cook book, an herb keeper from Pampered Chef, and some little glass bowl like things that have a grated wire top thing to them. I have no idea what they are for... anyone??? The best part of the whole package was the wrapping paper. Jen made it herself. It's photos of her sticking her tongue out mixed in with balloons. This is why I love her!
Now I must tell you all about how wonderful the people at KnitPicks are. I have the Options sets and absolutely love them! I've been trying to make my way through all the sizes to try them all out. However, I was sadly disappointed when I got to my 6s. They kept slipping right off the circular thingy right in the middle of my knit and several (read many) stitches kept falling off which became a problem with picking them back up again and again and again. Anyway, after speaking with Chan, I decided to contact the lovely ladies over at KnitPicks and informed them of the issue. A package arrived from them as well, telling me to throw out the "damaged goods" and sent me a brand new pair of 6s!!! Now, what to knit with them?!?!?!
Sock report (and other WIPs):
The Casual Bag is ready to call upon Super Neighbor for a lining job. I'm hoping that Kay and I will get together this week to shop for some coordinating fabric and she'll be able to wave her magical hands at it and whip up a fabulous liner so I can start showing it off wherever I go. I'm in love with the colors!
The Farmer's Market Bag is coming along slowly. I ran into some issues with picking up stitches, well, actually I read the pattern wrong - again. I think it's finally on it way - at least let's hope. But I'm really only working on it during House. Maybe I'm just so distracted from the show that it's effecting my knitting.
Hope you've had a happy Monday... and just incase you didn't already know.....
