I think the only explanation that needs to go with this is that my BFF knows me very, very well. This is one of the most spot on birthday gifts I have ever received. (There was also a set of Day of the Dead stitch markers and some knitters graph paper which really just adds to it’s perfectness).
The coffee mug has already been put to good use. The yarn needs to wait just a little bit longer but then it will become a pair of Vanilla Lattes (just to keep the theme going).
