my knitnight group's third annual swap was held last monday. i was crafting for mischa, whose questionnaire stated that she liked rainbows and all things sciencey/dna- related. a quick ravelry search produced the rosalind franklin shawl (rav link) and i luckily had some rainbow jojoland melody yarn in my possession from a destash another member of knitnight had a few years ago. they turned out to be a perfect combo!
i'm happy to report that it was well received! i was much relieved, because i haven't knit anything that required this much thinking in quite some time! it reminded me how much i love cables... but also that my new mama brain is better suited for things like zen circles and granny squares.
and what did i receive in the swap?!? this awesomeness made by melissa d:
i'll admit i squealed like a little child when i saw it. how stinkin' cute are those little guys?!?! (kate, don't answer that :) ) and they go perfectly right next to my fireplace, i couldn't be happier!
i'll chalk knitnight swap #3 up as a success!
