Twas the Friday before Christmas all throughout the land,
Knitters where knitting ignoring cramps in their hands.
Stockings still needed a an afterthought heel
Shawl needed blocked, who cares about cooking a meal
Weavers frantically hemstitching at the loom
Nobody caring about the Mayan Day of Doom
Fiber Artists unite, we understand the fear
of finishing the gifts as Christmas morning nears
Yeah, we had all year to make these gifts
but...hey, why am I writing a poem when I should be knitting?
This week I gifted a couple of my knitted items. One of the nurses I work with whom I really adore is a major Detroit Lions Fan. She has a ratty Lion's hat that she loves and I just can't handle seeing. One day she commented on how cute my hats were so I said, "Would you like one eventually?" and of course she said yes. Little did she know that I was already on the hunt for the perfect Blue yarn. I already knew that my Whirlwind Gray Suri Alpaca Fiber would be the Gray.
I used the Journey Hat pattern and...two days later the Detroit Lions had a win. After a very long and stressful afternoon of work she asked me if there was anything else I wanted to throw at her and I replied that indeed I did have one more item. I went to my desk and got the hat then told her to close her eyes. When she opened them she lit right up. She loved her hat! Hooray!
Next, I made a couple more Snowball Buddies Ornaments in the Bunny form by the request from my bears so they could give them to their Dyslexia tutors. Each child wrote a nice card to the tutor along with my knitted ornament and a bar of the goat milk soap we make here on the farm. I hope our little gift shows a wee bit of the appreciation we feel for all the help they give both kids.
Now...share your adventures in Fiber Arts! Enjoy your Christmas and here's wishing for a stocking full of fibery goodness.
