crazy great.

First, a finished pair of socks!

'Retro Rib Socks' from the Winter 2004 Interweave Knits
Socks that Rock in the 'cracked canyon' colour way
These took about a week and a half to finish. STR is some really great stuff, the colours are outstanding - I wore them all day & they are super cozy!

When I came home today there was a small package waiting for me! With curious and anxious hands I opened it up to find this!....

An awesome broach made of wool! I commented on how great I thought this was when I saw my friend Shannon's photo on flickr - and now it's mine! She sent it to me in the mail along with a really awesome vintage clothing label. AWESOME! I put it on right away! Thank You Shannon! I love it!

So it was already a super great day! And then my doorbell rang & at my door was the total angel of a cab driver who had come to return my wallet!!! **With everything in it!!**

Could. not. be. happier.

I remember when you got that wallet, and my heart sank thinking what an atrocious thing that was that it was gone. HOORAY FOR HONEST CABBIES !!!



May said...

I'm sorry...but what is the thing Shannon sent you?

nicole said...

It's a pin! made of wool! I should have explained it better!

Fantastic! My bf also got his wallet back when he left it in a cab. Hooray for Toronto cabbies! Oh - and I never should have pooh-pooh-ed that STR colourway involving peach - you're socks are definitely peachy-keen!
