See this??? Yes, it's my first ever knitted sock!! And, it fits, which is even more amazing! Now I'm working on it's twin. Not as much fun, I can assure you, but what are socks without a pair?? Incidentally, my 30 something daughter has already laid claim to these so I'm thinking already about the next pair. For sure they will be brighter in color!!!
Naturally, I sent out books to my sweeties this week in the following envelopes. They always get identical ones for the Mr. Putter series so don't think I'm cheating one over the other. lol
No books read again this week……….oh my!! Although I do have one that I think I will start as soon as I'm done knitting the twin to the sock above. Give my poor hands a rest for a day or two. I already had my husband read it and he assures me that I will love it so now I'm anxious!
I received my mini quilt from my partner in Germany yesterday. If you recall the theme was "Kittys" and Jennifer nailed it! Not only that darling quilt but she also sent me German milk chocolate kitties, bookmark kitties, and a fat quarter with kitties on it. Quite a haul and a wonderful way to end my swapping career for 2015. With the kitchen re-do in the works, I have no time for sewing right now.
So, my friends, that's it for this week. I have hired a contractor to paint my kitchen cabinets, have sort of decided on what kind of tile I want as a backsplash, and have already ordered new cabinet knobs and pulls. Soon, I hope, I will show you the before and after pictures. I'm really excited!! So, until next week….enjoy yourself and do something fun!!
