PHANTOM KNITTER

One never knows when or where one will get a surprise. Imagine my surprise when I got home from dinner last night to find a box at my door.  Figures, a package is delivered and I'm not here!!!! Once in, a opened the box to find out it was from our very own Anne Marie. For those of you who don't know Anne Marie, she is a fellow blogger who I have met  several times, she is crazy nuts, pours libations down my throat against my will, and get me into trouble at every turn, but aside from that, is one sweet, kind and entertaining person....and a incredible and talented knitter. Upon opening the box I see if is from Anne Marie.

At first thought, I was thinking isn't she wonderful sending me a long doily for my dresser. But then I thought is was a lovely cover to place over a light to create mood lighting.

Nope.  My next thought was how did she know I could use a head wrap when driving in the car with the roof  down?
 One of the house boys then told me it was a sarong for summer out at the pool.

Then Ms.Moorecock said your all nuts. It's a fashionable scarf you idoits.
She was right!!!! It is indeed a handmade scarf... made with love from Anne Marie! She remembered I love scarves, and this can be worn at least three out of four seasons worth of wear and look great with a coat or sweater, or in warmer temps like this, with just a tee. A huge THANK- YOU tootes for such a thoughtful gift and for taking the time to create this. It will be much enjoyed!!! She certainly is wicked with those needles.

  1. Love the colors!!!! But don't wear it as a sarong. You'll never be able to keep your junk under it without it popping out.

  12. Gorgeous, and the scarf ain't bad either! As far as sarongs go, it definitely isn't one size fits all! Carebear is a kind hearted, foul mouthed, huggable wonder.

  23. Wow nice, the lady has talent! I am a little shocked that she seems to have become shy or went silent! Hopefully next she will knit you a sarong and secretly knit in a special wardrobe malfunction where it falls off every time someone snaps a picture! :)
