Cristi got my final package today, in which I revealed my identity, so now I can talk about some of the things that I’ve been doing for her packages.
First I must say that I loooove Cristi. She is smart, funny, has adorable cats, and knits some of the most amazing stuff ever. So I was ten kinds of intimidated when I was assigned her as my pal! Of course, then I also discovered that she is seriously fun to shop and make things for, so it wasn’t quite as difficult as I was afraid it would be. The most difficult part was not saying anything about any of the stuff that I was doing that were included in her packages, like these origami stars that I’ve gotten into making:
and the jewelry that I’ve been making from them:
Also the little bits and pieces that I’ve knit:
(turtle in picture is about three times the size of the actual thing.)
All in all, definitely one of the best rounds ever. I’ll definitely be playing again if I can afford it (being a college student with expensive yarn tastes and food needs sucks!), or maybe I’ll do a cheapie round or two. And I’m definitely going to continue my Cristi-stalking, because downstream or not she is entertaining.
In other knitting news… I have nothing. I’m knitting stockinette socks which are boring, and not doing it very quickly which makes them boring-er. In blog news, I will be changing the layout of this here blog, because as much as I love the current one, I frequently use pictures that are 500px wide, and they get cut off. Boo! So I’m off to find a new one and make a new header.
But before I go, a touch of Caturday.
