Knickolas spent several sunny days in Florida last month, and didn't really want to come back to cold, gray, Illinois. I'm glad he did because we sure missed his bright, albeit a bit sarcastic humor around here.
Carly, his host Mom, showed Knick about her back yard and he got to bask in the warm Florida sun, by her Koi pond. He told me later that he now considers feeding fish a favorite activity. Carly had a slide in her back yard too, Knick was sure to take full advantage of that.
Since fiber and yarn is what Knickolas loves most, Carly and Knick spent several evenings evaluating her stash and current knitting and crochet projects. Carly is involved with the Snuggles Project on Ravelry which donates "snugglies" to animal shelters. Knick tested one out and confirmed it's snuggliness. He also posed next to a small knitted bag made from a February Sample (Vines Handspun).
Carly took very good care of Knick and is now expecting her Free box for March!
Knick is en route to a mystery destination (we box all the boxes and then attach labels to the tops) and we are all anxiously awaiting word back that he has arrived safely! In the meantime, another magical creature as appeared from fiber artist, Myfairbaglady.
I had intended to post this yesterday but, well laid plans- you know :)
For your giveaway enjoyment: A hand felted leprechaun!! Inside his coal black pot is not gold, but a felted ring! I tried it on to gauge size and it is approximately a size 7. All you have to do to win this lucky leprechaun, is tell us about something "lucky" happening to you below in the comments section! I'll draw for this guy on Friday, so leave a way for me to find you!
Oh, and for those lucky people who get a Myfairbaglady sample in their March boxes- they are filled with "lucky llamas" and "lucky lambs!" Each one of the 50 she sent in were different and if you send her a little story about yours, you'll get a discount in her shop!
