Ann, if you had only seen us standing in front of that dummy, touching the display piece and commenting and lifting and I actually took the whole thing off the dummy at one point and almost put it on, just trying to figure out the construction of the knitted item. It is quite a handsome item.
We giggled and laughed and did "girl" thinks and it was lovely and enjoyable. I had a marvelous time. Poor DH, on the other hand, sat on a chair and waited patiently while my new friend and I roamed the knitting department and discussed "things". It was great!
I wish you could have been there too! I would have called you, but I did not have your number. What would have made the trip more perfect is if you had been there.
I got the yarn I needed for my shawl, AND so much more! It was a productive day trip.
I love to give homemade gifts... which one of my kids do you want?
