Huh, when you order a 12-foot studio frame, you get a 12-foot studio frame. Who knew? Obviously, I didn't get as far as I had intended in putting the longarm frame together today. You know, stuff to do and all that. In any case, while procrastinating (because honestly, I have to do a lot of rearranging to get this thing to fit) I messed about with various WIPs laying around.
But your are probably wondering what the gift is today, yes? How about some of my most favorite yarn ever? I love everything about Madeline Tosh yarns. The dyeing is pretty incredible and the quality of yarn is worth every penny. A few years ago I bought a ton of it in one swoop and my family started worrying about my hording tendencies...(not that they weren't worried before). In any case, this stuff is fabulous. Today, I have a skein of Madeline Tosh Merino Light in Cedar (the color is a little off in the photo, sorry about that, I have been using a simple point and shoot with no editing this week--no time for anything else right now).
It's fingering weight one-ply and it's awesome. Should you want a shot at this gift, please tell me: what is the most overwhelming (in a good way) you have ever received? My new longarm, though it's technically not (but according to my husband, it totally is) a birthday gift, kind of blows my mind.
I will take comments for this post, and all Novakkah posts, until 11:59 EST (or 2359, should you prefer that), Sunday, May 12th (that's tomorrow!). Please leave your responses on the appropriate post. One entry per post/person. I will show you what I have to gift each day and let you know what you need to tell me to try to get it. Giftees will be selected on the 13th and gifts sent out shortly thereafter.
