On a super cold day last week this arrived in the mail:
Yes, amazingly: I treated myself to a new bag from Melissa at tiny happy. I know I have a lot of these now but as you may have noticed, I also have a lot of works in progress at any given time, ahem. It won't go neglected. But what I really wanted to talk about today is the pin.
Omigosh, Melissa is so skilled with her embroidery needle... and I am so not. I love the look of embroidery, and I think it's a great asset to a knitter to know how to add fancy detail to his or her work. I've bought so many embroidery books, too - I love looking at them. Just never seem to find the time to develop any sort of skill level beyond 'abysmal', which I guess is because the do-it-yourself passion isn't there.
Still, I'm full of admiration for people who do have it. I mean, even for making fangs!
I love Kendall's perfect fangs, don't you?
Fortunately, I do have both passion and skill for knitting, and I did mention it's cold out right now, right? so yay, Consolation in wool.
Do you have a wishlist skill too?
