Secret Pal Goodies

I was feeling a little bummed today because of a misunderstanding with another knitting blogger. She took an e-mail I sent the wrong way and even though I tried to be nice and clarify what I was asking from her, she ended up being upset.

Why is it that I've let a misunderstanding with someone I don't even know and will probably never meet in person bother me? I guess I'm taking it too personally. Time to let it go. "Put that woman down" as A and I say to each other when we are stuck on some person or incident. You do know the story about the two monks don't you?!?



Anyway, I spent the day putting the final touches on a felted clutch from the One Skein book by Leigh Radford today. I added a flower button with a beaded loop as a closure. I think it turned out cute if I don't say so myself. :)

Somehow the package I've put together kept getting bigger and bigger. I'd see something here or see something there and I'd set it aside for my secret pal. And then all of sudden I had a very full box!

Too cool. I'm mailing it on Monday.

I hope she enjoys it as much as I enjoyed putting it together. Posted by Picasa

I love the clutch and especially the button closure! You have one lucky swap partner! Have you tried the buttonhole bag yet?

Thanks, it was alot of fun to knit. I plan on making several as holiday gift bags for friends. I haven't tried the buttonhole bag yet. Is that the one from the Mason-Dixon site? I found one at: http://www.masondixonknitting.com/archives/2005_01.html

Ew, I hate misunderstandings. I'm sorry to hear that it happened to you but yes, sometimes you do have to "lay it down" and move on when there's nothing else you can do.

Buy some yarn -- it'll make you feel better ;-)

Yep, buying yarn always make me feel better! And so does knitting!
