Purl Jam does this awesome birthday exchange thing. We get assigned to knit for someone’s birthday, like a Secret Santa exchange. Usually we have a theme like hats, cowls, mitts, etc., but this year the knitter/giver gets to choose. Well, yesterday was my actual birthday, and tonight was Knit Night, so I was on the receiving end, yay!
Here’s how it went:
It was a surprisingly big package, to start with. I was intrigued.
I don’t know what caused this goofy expression, but it was too precious not to include.
A knitted bag! It has so many lovely details.
And there were some little goodies, too, including fabric from a town about 20 minutes from my home town in Wisconsin.
A classic “up north” scene.
Knitter and knittee.
I love how simple and sturdy this bag is. I can’t wait to use it!
