Because I'm excited, and because I know they'll appreciate it, and because you'll probably be jealous, and because my boss doesn't like it when I use his stamps:
Thank you Monte and Barbara for a most appropriate and appreciated birthday gift!!!
I am not able to upload photos, so the link will have to do for now. I'm really excited about this book, as it represents a growing bravery amongst my loved ones, the bravery to enable my knitting addiction in the name of gift-giving holidays. The guts to walk into a yarn store and proclaim, "I will buy knitting goods today, but I have no idea what my daughter/friend/sister/wife/in-law would like, and I know nothing about yarn, someone help me!"
Of course Barbara is a knitter, so she knows stuff, but my mom and dad also braved the overwhelmingness of a yarn store, and a Canadian Yarn Store at that (you know their selection is WAY bigger and better than ours), to make my birthday special (again, photos to come).
I feel the love, people! I feel it!!
