My husband couldn't believe that I was shipping off a scarf to a complete stranger, when he is in such desperate (not) need of a new handknit sweater. I explained to him that not only did I get to knit for someone who would appreciate the effort, but that I would also receive a scarf in return. When he is done knitting me two sweaters, I will be happy to start knitting for him again.
I was so thrilled to receive a box from my ISE3 pal, Deb, and show it off to my husband. "See", I said. "THIS is why I knit for knitters."
The Swallowtail Scarf pattern, knit in Lavold's Silky Wool, is a perfect addition to my wardobe.
A huge thank you to Deb for knitting me this very special scarf. And thank you for all of the goodies you sent us from MO. In the pretty box were assorted chocolates and teas, and honey sticks from a local farm. My daughter, the official photographer for the evening, insisted on having a tea party right away. There's also an adorable tape measure and a great postcard from Deb's state in the box.
Thank you again, Deb. The scarf is lovely!
