Hello there Boys & Girls!!
Grab some milk and cookies 'cuz this is a long one! ;o)
Crimson is calling her Ponchita because someone said while she was knitting it that it reminded them of a poncho with all the stripe colors! ;op The pattern is the Anthropologie-Inspired Capelet that she is doing for the spring KAL with her knitting group Charlotte Purls and it is already done!! More details to come soon.
She thought she would also show you real quick the extra little trimming on her bucket hatCrimson punched it up just a bit with some leather lace trim. But will now store it away for the fall season, as she has been over taken with spring fever now!!
Birthday wishes keep coming in and she wants to take a moment to say Thank You to Adrienne, Patrice, Tina, Mandy, and Chan!! Who made a special birthday shout out on their blogs to her! (charge it to her head and not her heart if she missed anybody!)
Speaking of Chan, she sent over a nice birthday surprise
Some beautiful handspun yarn in Chocolate Covered Cherries (yes she only likes Cellas) that matches Crimson's blog! ;op
And look at the cute stitchmarker that came with it too!
These colors are just divine together! We foresee winter mittens or gloves coming! ;op
Big XOXO back atcha Chan for this scrumptious yarn! Thank You for sending CrimsonPurl some crimson birthday fiber!
Shortly after the birthday girl celebrated her big day Julie sent over this generous package!
Wonderful Malabrigo in Paris Night and Amoroso along with a cute notion pouch (that is in both of her fav colors! Purple & Red) from Lexie Barnes and a Cherry Tree Hill sock pattern. Trust all of these items will be put to good use! ;o)
Muchas Gracias for the great package Julie!
One last thing for Show & Tell that Crimson Purl longs for from her hometown from time to time is Kringle. What is that you say??
It is a danish pastry with a fruit filling with icing on top....lurves it!
You may discover this at your local grocery store being imitated!!! But the true Kringle comes from here.
And two came in the mail this Friday!
Her fav is Raspberry!
It looks like this out of the wrapper (a little deformed after shipping)
And here it is before getting devoured!She won't divulge how much is left after a 48 hour time period alone with it! ;op Haha!
Lets just say Crimson has thoroughly enjoyed her birthday and celebrates all month long! :o)
