So you know that thing I was doing from the start of the year? That pay-it-forwards creative thing? Forgot about it?
I have done one of them. I made Stefs things... which I honestly WILL send off one of these days (note to self - ask Stef for her newest address) but I have not managed the other ones. For Jenni and Emma. Neither of whose birthdays I have caught up with.
Jenni's was only February! Give me a break.
Emma's was December.
On which note though - I DID manage to finally catch up to Emma T's birthday, and presented her with Tardis socks. Happily, although these were two months late (eek.... thats actually really good going for me at the moment..........) they do have the ultimate advantage over other birthday socks. Not looks - cause honestly they are some of the ugliest things I have knitted (even including the hat) apart from the Tardis motif - but their ability to time travel.
Emma has now happily utilised this function. Following the instructions enclosed in the present, she travelled backwards through time to the night *before* her birthday, rewrapped the socks, and returned to the current time. Thus creating a paradox where she now has received the socks perfectly on time, which for the current purposes one of the Tardis socks was containing, while the other is still available for time travelling purposes. This makes perfect sense.
(see multiple episodes of Dr Who to find the, for lack of a better word, logic, behind this)
Back to the point and purpose of this post though.
I hereby solemnly swear that I will finish Emma's birthday present before knitting anything else.
Cross my heart.
Not hoping to die though. Just so's you know.
