My sister was so sweet today! She gave me a beautiful pair of Mrs. Beetons - which I've been wanting since I ran across the pattern a bunch of months back! I'm so intimidated by knitting in the round - both my mother and sister reminded me today how easy it is, but my fears can't be quelled quite that easy.
In exchange - I'll be making her some tsumami kanzashi... that is once I figure out what color she wants most and what function she'd use most (barrette, ponytail holder, pin, etc); Jenn if you're reading this, lemme know! (I actually wore the Mrs. Beetons with my sweatercoat home! Thanks again!)
