Blah-Blah

Again, blog post title block.

Thank you to everyone for their birthday wishes! Every year, it seems to come around more quickly. For those wondering, I'll be 42.

I admit I am embarassed a bit about gushing over my pressies, but I am telling you-it's been so rare over the past 10 or so years that I have received anything from my family that I adored, I had to gush.

I do have a FO for you:

Remember the fulled mini tote I did with the handspun yarn? Well, it's done blocking. Okay, I admit, I forgot about it as it was tucked in some obscure corner of the spare room and noticed it today.

Before:


  


After:


  

This only shrunk about 1/2" all the way around-final size is about 7 1/2" x 7 1/2"-I ran it through about 5 times.

Looks fabulous. I love the colorway. I can't believe it takes you 5 times to get things to shrink! I suppose it's a blessing for your wool sweater, but a PITA for things you TRY to shrink!
