I was totally surprised on Christmas Day, to receive this gift from Doug:
It is a KnitPro Karbonz Interchangeable Needle Set. Isn’t it pretty? It opens up to reveal a set of 8 interchangeable needle tips, sized from 3.5mm to 8mm, plus cables and connectors.
Here is a close-up of the needle tips:
I must say this gift completely floored me. How did he know what to buy? (“I did some research”, he says.)
Then, I opened another package, which contained a pile of yarn. Specifically, Road to China Light by The Fibre Company in the shade Rhodolite. This yarn is 65% alpaca, 15% silk, 10% camel, and 10% cashmere. I have always wanted to try it, but never caved in and bought it.
I spent all day yesterday planning what I might knit with it.
I asked Doug what we should call this post. I suggested “How do you know that your husband ‘gets you’?” Doug suggested “How do you know that you’ve trained your husband properly?”
I’ll be back with my end-of-year post soon. Happy knitting!
Santa made truly nice choices, well done 🙂
Enjoy the search for The Pattern and knitting it!
He’s a keeper! But you knew that. We’ll be interested to see how you decide to use that yarn.
Santa Doug scores a perfect 10!
Fab gifts equals fab husband! He’s got a lot to live up to next year, he he!
Nice work Doug!
Wow! Doug did a great job! That is a very comprehensive needle set and the yarn will look lovely in whatever you make of it. Good for you!
Oh my, what a clever and thoughtful husband you have there. He’s definitely a keeper.
He did great! Karbonz are great needles – I love mine! And that is beautiful yarn 🙂
Well done, Doug!
