Just to prove there is some astounding amount of generosity out there, take a look at this:
That is the entire Huggable Hedgehog KIT! In the RAK group on Rav, I posted that I was looking for the pattern, as I can’t buy it for myself ’cause I don’t have a credit card or paypal account. DebiRN then bought the entire kit and had it sent to me! When I started knitting this summer, blogs all over were filled with these adorable little guys and I was stoked for when I’d be able to make my own. So, I was hoping someone who had already done it and was finished with the pattern would send it to me and I would find stashed yarn to work–but thanks to her I can make one just like the pattern shows! And I bet he’ll end up with some garishly bright brothers and sisters, too, later :D But, yah, I’m pretty stoked! HUGE thanks going out to Debbie!
Along with the amazing package from Debbie, there were a couple more yesterday (and I’m beginning to think the mail-person (sometimes male, sometimes female. but this applies to both) hates me :p They showed up 3 separate times :D
I got some KnitPicks Shadow, that is more blue than purple from Nandodge
and a mystery purple and 3! skeins of sportweight alpaca from nordly
(Immediately swatched to see if it’ll work for Bronte’s Mitts–the May KAL for FGF–which it will! Yay!)
Along with a pattern book from cccavicch and some coilless safety pins and a couple of charms from pocketmouse1189!
