Actually, I knitted fifteen TARDIS. (It’s an anagram. In plural, it stands for Time And Relative Dimensions In Space.)
This was my most important deadline knitting all year. Forget Petite Purls. Forget Interweave. (And, uh, forget I just said that.) My mom’s 60th birthday is tomorrow and I had to get this shawl to her in time. HAD TO. I knew the second it appeared in Knitty that I had to knit one for Mom. This is a pretty big deal birthday and only the best present ever was going to be good enough.
I started knitting right after my birthday, and finished with more than a week to go. I blocked it, wrapped it in tissue paper, and mailed it on Tuesday.
Yesterday Mom opened it while we were on Facetime. Her reaction was amazing. I wish I could play it back again and again. This photo will have to suffice.
I think she likes it.
Happy Birthday, Mom!
Your Favorite* Daughter
