Today when I got home I stopped at my mailbox and discovered a rather odd-shaped package.
When I first pulled it out, I thought it looked like a really short hockey stick. Then I decided it looked kinda like a sock.
Now, I knew the package was from Minding My Own Stitches - she had promised to send me some sock leftovers for the crackghan, and I thought to myself, "how clever, she packaged them up like a sock!"
Then I unwrapped it and discovered:
She had very generously included a set of sock blockers and tucked some sock yarn in each of the holes.
How cool is that?
Now you guys don't have to look at oddly angled pictures as I try to take pictures of socks on my feet! I've been saving up for some blockers - she must have read my mind.
I can't wait to knit these new ones into the crackghan.
In fact, that's pretty much all I did this weekend.
Oh, we (meaning Dave) did do a little work on my car and made a little side trip to the flea market, but when I was knitting, I was working on the Crackghan and Crackghan mark II. (Oh, but I did whip up that cute little bunny hat - but that was so quick it doesn't count.)
Though last night I started another semi-unbloggable project - but it kinda falls into the crackghan category because...... it's another mitred square project. (Totally addicted I know... but I love how the squares look!) But I'm not telling you what it is, because the recipient reads this blog. So you'll just have to wait...
