Um, can I have these???
You see, this past week was Dissertation Check-In for Tournament 5 of Nerd Wars. My dissertation this time around is two pairs of hexagon boot slippers - one in Hufflepuff colors and one in Slytherin colors. I cranked out the Hufflepuff pair first because I couldn't resist that happy yellow. The first slipper I managed to get done the last few days that Hobbit was in school because I knew that once summer hit, my crafting time would be nil... and boy was I right! Before I knew it, the time had flown by and I needed to crank out my other slipper boot to hit the halfway mark - and I did it with some marathon crafting over the weekend prior to check in, y'all remember?
I love the end result - and apparently there was a fellow Nerd Warrior who felt the same way. This girl has some crazy mad knitting skills. She makes the most beautiful shawls that I have ever seen - drop dead gorgeous stuff, I swear. Things I could only dream about making in a year, she manages to finish in a single round... and they aren't the only things that she turns in for points. I know, mind blown, right.
So when this girl utters the phrase "Um, can I have these??? Pretty pretty pretty please? :3 I’m kind of in love." I was honored. How could I refuse. I gathered up her address and sent them on their way, along with a surprise or two for good measure.
Like my daddy always says, you don't know if you don't ask...
