Comments: A KNITTER'S SORROW

SARAH! Stop freaking out!

If it is anyone that will appreciate a knitted blanket to the point of heart failure or blindness, it is me. Tucker will love it, I will love it, and it doesn't have to match the nursery. I'm not as matchy-matchy as you may think. I look forward to receiving it, and even if it takes you four more months to finish, I would rather you enjoy the process than let it cause YOU heart failure.

Just wanted to say hello! I read often but don't post a comment. I am a non-knitter and I have always loved your gifts! The boy loves them too! Some people just don't appreciate a gift that is made . . . aren't those the best!

Sarah, I have a friend who is a knitter and a rather part time blogger. She just asks people what they want... *grin* That way they're expecting it... of course you could always enclose a card that says...

"I hope you like wearing this..." If they see that, it will probably fall into place.

In any case, Happy New Year! I hope you have a terrific 2008 to make up for 2007.

This comment is for Erin since I cannot post a comment on her blog; I messed with it for l0 minutes and then gave up.
I love the name, love the colors of the room, and love the creative decorating. Very clever!
Tucker _________ sounds like a dreamy movie star's name. I love it!

Sarah, you're too hard on yourself. I've been bundled up all day long in the cream/sand blanket you knitted for me. I love it and it's so nice and warm and special because you made it for me!

Don't worry! Your gift will be loved. And, trust me, your gift WILL be used & therefore, doesn't need to match the nursery given that the little buggers don't spend much time in there anyhow!

Thank you, Momma Nancy. When are you coming to see Tucker? :)

When someone MAKES something, it is an heirloom.

At least, that's how I see it. Every stitch that goes into it was a thought the creator gave the receiver.

Oh, get this. The other day I dropped off a hand knit blanket with a note for a pregnant friend I used to work with (she was off the day I brought it in). So I went in today, and she said, "Hi Erin." I waited for more, but it never came.

"HI ERIN?!," I thought. The nerve.

Scout said, "Well, maybe nobody gave it to her. Maybe someone stole it."

Heh. That better be what happened.

Erin, remember when I made that hat and scarf for the Christmas gift exchange and the lady who opened it said, "Oh...a hat and scarf" and dropped it on the floor? Sigh.
