Grr! I am riding high on a finished project—not just finished, mind, but boxed up, taped, addressed, and ready to mail tomorrow—and I’m SO PSYCHED about how well the project and whole birthday package came together, including a hand-written letter from Hogwarts to the recipient.. and then I forgot to take pics of it all.
I mean, I have some store-bought items in there—a quill (a really pretty one), ink, and some branded HP-world junk collectibles from the theme park—but I have a hand-made, all-wool object d’a-freaking-more in there. And I’ve had it finished since January (because no, ah no, I don’t knit during sweaty-hands season). Finished. Finished and filed away so tidily that I couldn’t find it when the night of sending came around. Oh yeah, cause birthday, in the works since January, is on Sunday. I’m so ready. So excited. So.. without pics. Boo. And yay. B’yay.
Ok, here’s what else is in the box, cause… eff, I wish I were getting it!
Wow. After much teeth gnashing, someone has finally come up with a brain hat so I don’t have to. Well, it’s crochet, not knit. But close enough. In fact, I found a partially-finished brain hat recently in my cleaning. Ah, brain hat. I hardly knew you.
Ok, this is the most adorable thing ever. Even though knitting those tiny periodic table sweater ornaments was kind of annoying, I might do it all again to “clothe” my keys. It sure would be nice to be able to tell them all apart in the dark. Maybe some could have tassles, some short sleeved, and some naked still. Cute to look at, certainly!
