This was made for a very good friend who also happens to be my coworker. She is an awesome friend for a knitter to have as she speaks enough “knitter-ese” to understand when I get technical and is always admiring and commenting on the projects she sees me work on during our coffee break. And to make her an even better friend to a knitter she has never once asked for anything for herself.

So I decided to make her a birthday present this year. It all started when I spotted the skein of Indigodragonfly’s Merino Silk Lace in Pink Freud and thought the colour would look fabulous on Gurmeet. When I came back a few weeks later and it was still there I snatched it up and decided to make her one of Anne Hanson’s Little Nothings.

Her birthday was this past Tuesday. Sadly I don’t have any pictures of her modelling it so the ones of me will have to do but best of all was her reaction: “I finally have a Lizzie!”.
