Yesterday, Philip and I visited Stone's Throw Artisans in Georgetown to get a drive band for the spinning wheel that my dad found and a few last minute goodies for my secret pal. If you live in Central Kentucky and haven't visited this place you should definitely make the trek. Their customer service is outstanding; I brought my wheel in and got a 30 minute lesson on how to repair and maintain this antique wheel.
We have been busy working on Christmas presents. Philip is making sock creatures like a little factory. Since they are gifts I can't actually show you any of the creatures destined for new homes, but I can show you this one. After Philip finished this guy I knitted him a little scarf and a little tuft of hair. He was so cool that we decided to add him to our personal sock creature collection so we can look at him every day.
Tomorrow I will be mailing my last secret pal package (a little late because I forgot about the deadline.) I will also be mailing all of the other things that I have been meaning to mail for the last month so if you are expecting a package from me you should get it this week, sorry about the wait. A special apology to a certain couple who have a wedding present that has been sitting in my living room for over a month waiting to make a trip to New Mexico. It will be there soon and I hope it will be worth the wait.
