a long overdue Neil MailBox...

I almost forgot how to format a blog, it has been so long. my apologies!

This summer Jonas tour was particularly heavy duty. It seems like none of us ever got caught up on much more than the day-to-day living. It was a fabulous crew though, we had a massive good time together.



Directly after the tour ended, Drew & I flew back east for a whirlwind week of Washington/Baltimore/Virginia... I am home now and trying to sort through the GIANT pile of Neil mail that has accumulated.



Neil is back now too, so all timing is wonderful. Will also gather the photos and start up the Neverwear magnet contests again...
( follow me on Twitter.com @neverwear )




Here are just a few of the beautiful things that have turned up in the post box:

this collection of stories from Serbia sent by Drasko...




there is a stunning sweater with a hidden pixie and hidden kitten in the stitching, 100% wool and sent from the talented Sarah in Santa Monica...she describes the color as "black-as-the-gates-of-hell" and oh, it is a beauty. My photo does it no justice.



from the imagination of John Kovalic comes the extra-cute MY LITTLE CTHULHU complete with mini-minions for him to grip...



Miss Lindsay, one of Neil's most ardent fans, sends this delicate portrait of one of my favorite characters, Matthew the raven:



oh, yes, and look who won yet another award...!



there is much more, including an adorable kittytoy present for Lorraine, but let's not push it, the heat here in LA is unbelievable and all this typing and sitting still is making me dizzy.
I promise, you beautiful readers, to never take this long of a leave of absence.
will post travel photos and tour blog on the FurryTiger site soon.
meanwhile, i will sign off with the grave of Edgar Allan Poe, one of our stops while in Baltimore...

Glad you finally made it back home.
Cuddle the cats (and Drew) they must have missed you.

Holy Jeebus, I can't believe you put the sweater on the blog!

I'm glad it shipped well.

Marjorie said...

Welcome Back - we missed you, y'know :-)

Love the raven art. And the black-on-black - was that the same person who knitted the black-on-black christmas trees sweater for Neil?

Which award was it? I squinted but can't quite make out what it says...

Dan Guy said...

Welcome home! We have been suffering a distinct Kitty shortage.

Kitty Cat said...

Miss Krafty! Your work is gorgeous. Marjorie had a query for you, because i don't have that answer...
(but i do know it was another Scream Award Spike TV cool award that Neil was given)
and i have missed all of you, Danth, are you still in the US of A???

Dan Guy said...

I am, indeed, still stateside. I'm hoping that will change around the turn of the year.

Krafty Like A Fox said...

Marjorie-No, I did not do the Christmas tree sweater, but it was the inspiration for offering Neil a black-on-black sweater.

Kitty-Thank you! If you're interested, I have more stuff posted on my blog.

vampi said...

oh wow kraft, you have some really awesome stuff n your bog. as a beginner knitter i am in awe of some of your finished projects. the neil sweater is awesome.

Drashko said...

Glad to see that the book was delivered safely and in one piece... Just a little thank you for the lovely "Politika" interview (i trust that the copy of the newspaper was in the package as well).

That sounds like a no-win situation: sitting still in the heat is painful, moving around in the heat must be painful ... must be nice to be home.
