I went over to visit my oldest son and girlfriend today. They asked if I will knit some things for them to give as Christmas gifts. They gave me money today to replace yarn and buy patterns, etc., more than generous. They want their gifts to be keepsakes; that's how they refer to my knitting. I am so happy, I can't stop smiling. We decided on one orca, which is finished already, Odd Job Man by Alan Dart, two Skiing Steffi dolls, and Juggle Birdies with nest and eggs. I have all kinds of time to knit these projects. I am so looking forward to it. I printed the patterns tonight. I ordered the book that has the Steffi doll in it and it shipped today so it shouldn't be too long getting here. This is so cool. They thanked me all over the place and I feel I should be thanking them as well. Awesome.
I am in the middle of making one of your cute bedtime gnomes so I can understand them wanting some of your makes. Your knitting is wonderful!
You are so lucky to have people who appreciate your handmade treasures so much. To not only give you more than enough money for supplies after asking so nicely but then thanking you profusely is more than most of us could ever wish for. Too many of us make gifts, put all of our heart into them, only to find them ignored and hidden someway or given back to us.
A compliment in the highest. Good for you!
The little boy who will receive the Odd Job Man is three years old. His Dad is in construction and the little fellow wants to be a 'workin man'. That sounds so precious. Sometimes his Dad lets him hit a nail (sort of) with a hammer. He sounds so cute.
How wonderful! Make sure you keep us updated on your progress!
That is such a wonderful compliment for you. It makes me happy to hear it. I'm looking forward to seeing your work.
That’s lovely, congratulations!
Isn't it a wonderful feeling when other recognize our hard work? Have fun putting it all together and if you can, show us what you did.
You did some good kid raising!!
You are so blessed to have people share your love of knitting. Asking you to knit “keepsakes” is such a wonderful compliment. Your happiness overflows here on KP. Love your tee hees. Keep sharing!
I can’t wait to see all these gifts....😀
