Friday Harbor Socks Redux and Gifts!
Just call me determined. A few months ago, I started the Friday Harbor Socks from Knitting on the Road. Actually I started them, I ripped, I started again, and finally gave up in frustration. Last night, while watching the Red Sox, I picked up the book again and thought I'd give it another try. And whaddya know...I've made my way through the blasted cuff, with no problems at all. Maybe my brain just needed to stew over that lace chart for a while. Who knows, I'm just glad it's all coming together so nicely.
And another very nice thing happened today...my super fantastic secret pal sent me this....
The book is perfect! How did she know I'd been eyeing it recently?? Funny, it's a book about gifts, and it is the perfect gift. It has patterns and instructions for all kinds of neat, funky, sophisticated little items. I especially love the teeny, fuzzy mohair baby booties and the cashmere tea cozy. Little luxurious one of the kind gifts that will be so much fun to make. And how did she know that the numbers were wearing off my old boring measuring tape? This one is so sweet. Max likes it too! Thanks Secret Pal, you are the best.
