fiber hugs

What's better than a handknit scarf?

A scarf knit by a dear friend and received as a gift!

Mr. NK totally surprised me on my birthday by inviting Woolgirl and Woolboy to join us for dinner. Sadly, WB was out of town, but Jen joined in the surprise. And boy oh boy, was I surprised!!

Dear Readers, we literally shut down the restaurant...dear me, I have not done that...well, since in forever I imagine! :) We had a blast!!

That sweet Jen, she totally spoiled me rotten...this scarf (just one of her many splendid gifts) was outstandingly special...just like its maker.

Thank you Jen!! Heart you!! :)

A portion of thyself indeed. So much of your thoughts and time go into things you knit. What a wonderful gift in a perfectly warm pumpkin color!
