One Hump Or Two?

Yesterday I packed up 2/3rds of my boys (the big hairy one I married stayed home to do end-of-the-quarter-grading) and drove to Central Jersey to help celebrate my friend Chris's "special" birthday.

I won't give away what number this was for her, but I will now reveal part of her birthday present.

First you have to know that she's got a penchant for camels.

So I made her these:


Hee hee!

I have to say my favorite stitch markers are some that are just like this--some tiger tail wire, a focal bead and some crimp beads. They don't snag and they fit pretty much any size needle.

Unfortunately, I ordered her other present a smidge too late. This is Part #2 of the "special" birthday present. I got the "shipped" notice the day of the party--so she had to settle for a picture of the listing and an IOU!

Happy Special Birthday Chris!

I second Christina - you are such a thoughtful friend! I love the yarn bowl!

My oldest brother's wife is Arabic, and he gave her a Beanie Baby camel when they were dating - I told him he's lucky she still married him, ha, ha!
