i was so excited when i came home this afternoon and saw a package on my porch from my DRU (DishclothsRUS) unofficial swap partner! she sent two awesome dishcloths in my favorite color, a wonderfully soft and cuddly mobius scarf in a pretty purply color, and a CD of one the Pat Metheny Group, one of her favorite groups. but wait, there's more! she knew that i collect knitting needles and elephants...so she commissioned a friend of hers to make the cutest elephants to top a pair of bamboo needles....AND a stitch marker to match! you should see me, i'm listening to the CD, wearing the scarf (nevermind that i'm sitting here in a t-shirt and sweatpants!) and about to cast a cloth on to my favorite new knitting needles!
