This is Vinnie, who has gone from growling at me a month ago to sitting on my lap whenever we're in the same room. And it's hard to take a picture of your own lap.
I forgot one of my yarn-related birthday gifts in my last post. My brother got me this great knitting pirate t-shirt.
In the last few days, other knitting goodies have arrived in my mailbox.
Here's this month's yarn from the Mean Girls Yarn Club. Accompanying it are a stitch marker (attached to the label), a lollipop, and, my favorite, a tiny crochet hook on a key chain ring. I've been wanting one of these for ages! This one is made by 5elementknitr, who is currently at Sock Summit, with all the other cool kids.
And a week or so ago, while working on Buttercup, the cord to one of my Harmony Options broke. It came out of the part that screws onto the needle. This was extremely annoying, so I called them. I know that I'm not the first person to have this problem, but I've got to say customer service was great. They put a package of two more in the mail, and told me just to throw the broken one away. I love my Harmonies, and even if they aren't perfect, I'm glad that this problem was so easily resolved
