As you may recall, I made a hot water bottle sweater for my friend Bimbie in England as well as a grey scarf for her husband, Dom and some hot pink mittens (with blue fun fur around the cuffs) for her daughter Daisy. I sent them off last week and just received this email from her tonight:
You are very naughty to send that amazing package to us!!! It was very exciting receiving it last week & we all love our things. I am absolutely MAD about my hottie cover & I think it’s sooo excellent that you should sell them, it really is so pretty & I use it every night. Daisy loves her mittens & has worn them a lot as the weather here is quite chilly they are perfect as her hands are always freezing!!! Also pink is her Favourite colour!!!! The socks are gorgeous & she loves the patterns. Dom is very keen on his scarf & was very impressed with your knitting abilities. i need you to come over here & give me a proper course as I have been very slack with doing it but I would love to make things like you do!!!!!!!
Anyway I hope you guys are well, we are & I can’t believe that the baby is due at the end of next week it’s very scary!!!!!!!
I must dash as it’s 2 :10 am I have to get to bed!!!!!!!!!! Thank you again soooooooooo much you are a real star. We miss you guys. Hugs Bimbie
Well that just made it all worth it. I am so happy that I made those pieces for her. I am working on a blanket for the baby and can’t believe she is due next week. Looks like I’d better get crocheting on that this week so I can send it out to her. Ack!
