Yup, you're the friend :) Who knows, maybe one day I'll go over to the UK with the Red Cross, or even just on vacation. I do plan on traveling one day. But, until then, or even if that doesn't happen it's awesome to have a friend online! :) Or, who knows maybe oneday you'll venture over to the US!... Anyway, any news on the giveaway? I haven't gone too far from home in a few days (only to go some light shopping), but once I go more into town, I'll DEF. pick up some stiching supplies, and then I'll e-mail you with the results! :)

Beautiful Hazel! Boy it looks to me like you're a slim little thing! But I'm sure we all feel like we can loose a few! Best of luck in your endavour! If you need someone to commiserate with feel free!

Brigitte said...

Congratulations on such a nice piece. It's a wonderful colour, right down my alley. That knitting bug seems to be as productive as the stitzching bug, lol.

Angela said...

Well done, I'm impressed by anyone who knits tings that look that good.

Love the colours.
