There was lots to see (like friends).
My main goal was to purchase some fiber, an orfice hook (not as dirty as it sounds), some US 6 knitting needles and the soap was spontaneous puchase, some of which is for other friends. I like the Little Barn folks (vendor that I bought the fiber from). Good fiber, fair prices.
Since I got so much fiber (which let's be honest, I really DO NOT need), I figured I could share some of it.
Today's gift is fiber. No, not the plain undyed stuff (well, if that's how you want it, sure, it's all yours); but 8 ounces (that was EIGHT, in case you missed it) of wool roving (you choose: bfl or merino, superwash or not), custom dyed by me for you (or whoever you want, I guess). You can tell me how you want me to dye it (colors, saturation, whatever) and you can name the colorway (my only requirement is that you pick an American author that I haven't already honored with a colorway, see items listed and sold in my shoppe). If you are not a spinner, I will even spin the wool for you (see, now everyone can play along!). Now that, my friends, is how you give a gift (we are working on thoughtful gift-giving practices with Little Sir right now..."we know you like it; but, will your friend like it, that's the real question...." I put a lot of thought into this gift for today, so I am labeling it as "thoughtful".
If you would like to receive this bit of fluff (or yarn), please tell me the best (or most thoughtful) gift (birthday or otherwise) you have given someone in the last year, and why you think it's so special.
I will take comments for this post, and all Novakkah posts, until 11:59 EST (or2359, should you prefer that), Thursday, May 12th. 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.
See you tomorrow!
