He told me to wake up him before I left for work so that he could open his present to wear his gift to work. :teehee:

Thanks everyone. I'll pass your compliments and happy birthdays along. :hug:

Oh, yeah, forgot to mention that I actually just duplicate stitched the design on the back on. The microspun did NOT lend itself well to stranded work, so I just knit it plain and dup stitched it on later.

And, yeah, I guess I like him well enough. I better! We're getting married next year. :teehee:

If I get good at knitting (cross fingers) I'll have to tackle that pattern. My husband lived in Japan for 2 years. He brought home a short kimono like thing to use as a bathrobe, but it wore out long ago. I think he would love this!!

Great job and thanks for sharing!! :cheering: :cheering:

Thats exactly what I thought, followed by "My husband would love that!". What pattern is it?

Heh, I was thinking the same thing. Did he go to work later and tell them that those were not the droids they were looking for? :roflhard:

Awesome job on the kimono pattern, friskums, I love it! :cheering:

I put a link up in the first post (click on Pattern) :thumbsup:
(I modified mine so that the sleeves are fully connected to the body, and left off the front designs.)


Yeah, he's very pleased it turned out looking like that. We're huge Star Wars geeks. :rofl:

Thanks all! And yes, we use that quote (along with many many others) very often. :rofl:


ooo it looks GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


:shifty: uhm, is he coming to fiber best too? :shifty:
No, he's a big poo poo head and doesn't appreciate the goodness of all that is fiber. :teehee:
(Plus, he just lost his job and is looking for a new one, and we've been talking about moving back up to MN. Which I wish he'd make up his mind about, because if we move up there before the FF, I need to know so I can change my ticket. But, I think we're going to wait until next year, assuming he finds a job in the mean time.)
