I am Honored

I wasn't going to post this until I had time to take some pics of my own, but I just can't keep it to myself... I feel so loved! I popped over to the po box today on my lunch hour in hopes of finding my Winter Doldrums swap package and some beading supplies I ordered... neither of which was there, however I did have the most wonderful surprise of all from Chan! This incredible, gorgeous "Warm Lace Wrap," which was my Pay It Forward / belated birthday surprise!


Isn't it absolutely stunning?!?! You can see a couple more pictures of it here. Chan tried really hard to get me to guess which item was for me after this post and although any of the gorgeous knits she posted about would have been fabulous, I hard secretly hoped it was this blue wrap and ... ta-da!!!!!!! The wrap is so me... the color, the alpaca/silk yarn, the style... its going to go fabulous with jeans, as well as with more dressy stuff and I am so honored that Chan knit it for me! She even gushed about it being the first handknit item she truly had a hard time parting with... I'm so honored! I promise to post pics of me with it soon. Thank you Chan, it truly is perfect! Now, I really need to get my Pay It Forward items finished up and shipped off to Ally and Criquette.... I plan to work on them this weekend ladies. I can't promise mine will live up to Chan's stunningness, but I hope that you will like what I'm working on.

And *I* am honored too... There's nothing better than giving a gift so well-received.

PS - everyone knows that's the VA photo; no white stuff in the background! ;)

OOh, you are one lucky gal. That wrap is so gorgeous... when I saw it on Chan's blog I had to check out the pattern right away.

The jury is still out on whether knitting lace and I are going to be friends. I'm doing a rather simple wrap now, but I seem to be doing more than my share of frogging back. It's not even difficult, but I still manage to mess up a yo every once in a while.
