Twinkie Chan Surprise!!


I wasn't expecting a birthday present from Symon this year - because of my camera drowning incident in Israel, I was meant to be waiting 10-100 years until I would be able to look forward to birthday presents again.

So, you should have seen my face when "Twinkie Chan's Crochet Goodies for Fashion Foodies" arrived (slightly late) in the mail on Saturday.  I actually did an excited scream and freaked the kids out a bit.


Twinkie Chan is one of my favourite crochet inspirations - she specializes in food items (especially scarves) and other delicious treats.  Seriously, who wouldn't want to wear a bacon & egg scarf to work, or sport a cupcake scarf - or even better, a popcorn scarf to the movies?


Thanks Syms for being the coolest husband and taking notice of those emails I send you with hints of things I love being so in tune with everything I love.

Let me know if you want me to whip up a sushi scarf for you!!
