First, gifts from Stephanie (left) and Adrienne (right).
The painting is from Toadbriar. If you visit her site, you will be enchanted. Believe me.
The tea towel is so cute that I can not possibly use it for anything as mundane as drying dishes!
Thank you, dear friends! Your gifts cheered me immesurably.
This is the third repeat of the Tidal Wave socks. It's a lovely pattern, so easy (even for me) and so soothing. I've almost conquered my clumsiness with slip/knit/psso; when I'm still clumsy, I have almost figured out how to fix it without breaking into hives.
Everyone else who has knitted socks from this beautiful yarn has ended up with stripes. I love the way this is pooling - and I hope I'll be able to duplicate the effect for the other sock...
I hope you all are having a happy, safe Labor Day!
