It's soap without a rope. But it does have it's own knitted sweater. This is the COOLEST birthday present! Wool to boot. My knitting/co-worker/"twin lost at birth" made this for me. Ok, so she's not really my twin -- since she's 8 months older than I. But people do mistake us for sisters/twins. We don't see it, but others seem to. Lots of others.
Anywho. She says that as it is used it will felt together. I can't wait to try it out. I'm very interested in felting. I haven't tried it yet, but it's on my list of things to do -- eventually. What a great way to combine soap and cloth!!! Find out all about it here at her blog: Fruit of My Hands.
I consider her one of my crafting mentors and one of my best friends. She's a wonderful knitter and quilter. She inspires me to keep learning and trying new things. I know, I know...socks are on the list too. I just think my hands are too big & clumsy for DPNs.
I guess that's all for tonight. I really need to go to bed. Moving to my new office tomorrow. WOOHOO!!!
p.s. Edited to say that she must think highly of me. Wool makes her itch -- badly.
