Grey's A-freakin'-natomy!!!


I am totally beyond myself right now. I got an order from a woman yesterday for 2 baby sweater/hat/booties sets...which was great...but she wanted both sets in her hands, in California, by Thursday....are you freakin' kidding?
So, I'm thinking just that, this woman is crazy. There's no way I can get 2 sets done and to her in 2 days, seeing how one of those days would be a shipping day. Then, I get an email.....

Hi there good folks of a playful yarn -
My name is **** and I've just placed an order for some of your items. I'm the Propmaster on a TV show called Grey's Anatomy. Our schedules are very tight and the script included a scene that involves hand knitted baby clothes that shoot Thursday - hence my rush. If it makes it easier I can give you our fedex number, please let me know if there is any way I can facilitate this transaction. If that's not convenient, I'll paypal you the shipping difference. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call me on *****. Thanks again. Kind regards - A***

My daughter was at my computer and I asked her to check my emails. All of a sudden she starts yelling "OMG. OMG. She's from Grey's Anatomy. Mom! OMG!". She was not making any sense to me so I got up and read it and then I started going...OMG!! So, what's a person to do?? I called her.

It seems this one set in particular will be what they call a 'hero prop'....meaning someone will hold it up and say 'Look what I made for you'. How awesome is that????

She said she printed off a picture of it off of my Etsy site and showed it to Chandra Wilson, the big shot at Grey's. Chandra said 'that's perfect!'

So, I started at 5pm and stayed up until 3am making these sets. My fingers are still sore this morning. I got 2 hours of sleep but it was worth it. I have to admit I'm going back to bed though as soon as the kids and hubby leave.

The show will air Dec 20, and I'll remind you again, be sure of that, and it's called 'Lay Your Hands on Me'. Now, I have no idea who has 'made' this outfit or who it's for but it's too cool.

Anyhow, I'm running on fumes right now and just thrilled beyond belief!! I keep wondering if McDreamy will touch it......ahhhhhhhhhh to dream.

Oh, I have to make a special acknowledgement to my dear dear husband, without whom this would never have happened. He had to go to WalMart on his break at work (he was working a double shift) and buy 2 skeins of Caron Simply Soft yellow yarn. Wouldn't you know it, I was out. So without his kindness I would never have been able to do this. Mind you, I'll be hearing about it for the next year

Ok, I'm going back to bed now.......hope I don't wake up and this was all a dream!!
