First off, THANK YOU for the wonderful comments about my new hat. I can't even TELL you how happy and excited I am with it. I feel a little like a whole new world of knitting has opened up for me now - silly, in a way, but it is what it is.
I'm not going to talk about my own knitting today, but instead about a lovely gift I received for my birthday this past spring.
Suzanne made this for me. Isn't it gorgeous?
You can't really see from the picture, but it is also huuuuuge! Longer than I am tall, and incredibly cuddly warm. Now that the temperature is finally dropping, I actually got to wear it today, and it is perfect to keep me snug warm with a light jacket, and I bet it'll be even more delicious when it's cold enough to really need bundling.
The best part about it though, is that when I put it on, it feels like I'm wearing a big hug from Suzanne.
