I've already begun collecting, ordering, and making things to go in the box! I'm really excited about what I'm putting together this year. I sitll have a few things left to get, other than making my sock, but alltogether it's going well! So far I've ordered my yarn, picked up a little doggie notepad, ordered a CD and gathered sketches of the city my pal would most like to visit to put together a few handmade notecards. : ) Also, I'm doing some custom stitch markers for my pal based on the "Favorite TV Show" question. After that, I plan to throw in a few homemade pet snacks (okay, if you don't have a pet now you know I'm not your pal, lol!), some cookies, and probably a candle or three for good measure. I ordered a few skeins of Knit Picks Dye Your Own, as I plan to hand-dye a few of the colorways my pal suggested to choose from. I certainly have enough to keep me busy until it arrives!
Oh, and since my pal requested a solid-knit sock, I think I've decided to go with this pattern. After all, everyone knows someone that's been a cancer victim, and isn't it nice to show that we haven't forgotten them?
Christy, this update was for you!!!! Hope you approve! : )
Till next time,
