Outsourcing, especially to bloggy friends, is a clever thing to do in life I have decided. I was never going to get the time to finish a knitted hat for the Smurf in time to keep his head warm when he actually needs it (like now). So I outsourced to a lovely lady (with questionable taste in football teams) who I wished I managed to actually meet in person when we lived in the same state.
It was also a clever use of outsourcing on my behalf because look what delights accompanied the head warmer. And she's quick, a matter of days for a custom order, quick sticks indeed! So if you need some knitting assistance you too can outsource to her: http://www.sheepsclothingknits.blogspot.com/
