Working in a library with wonderful people is great. . . when some of those wonderful people are also knitters . . . well, can it get any better?! There is always someone around when you get stuck on a pattern, need advice, share yarn with . . . and of course show a completed project to.
Suzanne has been quietly knitting in the staff room for the past few weeks making a 'stuffie' for her son. Luckily I was working today when she brought in the completed project. I confess that I didn't know exactly what . . . or rather who . . . he is . . . but then I also confess that I am not a Star Wars fan. (Suzanne however has a really awesome Star Wars pocketbook. Even I . . . the non-Star Wars fan . . . acknowledge the cuteness of it!)
He is Admiral Ackbar. But more importantly he is the cutest, softest, cuddliest thing. Just looking at him gives you that warm fuzzy feeling that a hand crafted gift gives you. That feeling you get knowing someone thinks enough of you to spend their free time creating a gift just for you. (And let's face it, when short rows and embroidery are involved, someone flat out loves you!).
I wish you could squeeze him like I did.
I had to share him with you.
Until next time, keep your nose in a book or your fingers in fiber.
