A Cat On A Bag
A cat person deserves a bag with a cat on. I tend to find totes on Etsy to use as gift wrapping for my knitted gift. Most of all to make the gift even more personal but also to honor the work I have done.
I have stopped bying additional gifts when giving away something knitted. After all, a knitted gift is not only yarn. It is a lot of planing, hours of knitting and blocking.
I did a lot of research before chosing the color and finnally finding it in the online shop. And it turned out to be perfect for the receiver.
Wollmeise Lace is not hard to come by but if you want a specific color you have to be online every friday morning.
It is actually fun to do that. I have spent a couple of months getting the right color for another gift, also a Viajante knitted during last years Tour de France.
Anyway - this is my 9th of this garment that is so versatile.
I cannot describe the reaction from the person who received this. But it was so appreciated. And this is after all the best thing.
She deserved something special as she has made my life brighter and better.
