Christmas shopping

We had an office Christmas party- and I was sitting next to a friend who noticed that I was noticing- and commenting on all the knitted items. Things like a Bath and Body Works gift set that was in a little ivory colored machine knit bag. There was a bear wearing a machine knit sweater given as a gift. Also, the person next to me had a really cool felted purse, that she had received as a gift during a previous Christmas. Knitting is all around us, and suprising how often it shows up in daily life.

I was in Kohl's tonight and there was an off the shoulder shirt with a large collar that looked like it was knit out of an all black version of Colinette's Tagliatelli, their merino tape yarn. Life through a knitter's eyes is a different way to look at the world.
