My husband and daughter are much better at celebrating holidays than I am. She spends days or even weeks before making all her cards, and he leaps at every opportunity to spoil us. No chocolate, thankfully: a dvd of Angels in America directed by Mike Nichols. I can’t wait to start watching it tonight.

I also had a surprise in the mail last week:

It’s Silk Twist from Hand Maiden in the Paris colorway as well as a gorgeous, dark plum semi-solid (click for close up) I’m not exactly sure what I’ll make with it yet, but I’m leaning in favor of a combination of lace and stranded colorwork. I have a while to think about it, though – there are three sweaters to get out the door first, and one of them is very mean to me…

    Angels is America is soooooo good. I adore Jeffrey Wright. Best actor period.

    Happy Valentine’s day! What wonderful gifts!

    At least yummie yarn doesn’t have those silly calories attached. Those are fabu colours.

    Fabulous gifts. Much better than chocolate.

    I really hate it when sweaters get mean…I’ve been working on one that is giving me wrinkles. That is great yarn.

    Happy Valentine’s Day, Veronik! I’m sorry a sweater is being mean to you. Want me to beat it up for you? ;) Thanks for the *eye* candy Handmaiden shot. Mmmmm….

  7. A sweater being mean?! No, say it isn’t so! (Sorry to hear it, Veronik.)
