I think WIP is not a monday thing, but I forget. Here are my in progress very first pair of socks for a full grown person! I am just working on the heel now and I must say, it is so pleasing watching all the tiny stitches coming along so neatly. I treated myself to some knitting at the kitchen table this morning watching the soft snow drifting down. A treat because its "MONDAY", a day when I usually feel all scrambly and fussy over work needing to be done. Pshaw, it can wait.
These were a treat to myself at the craft show I did in the Latvian church before Christmas. Real hand knitted Latvian mitts! Are they not so lovely? I have always wanted a pair, seeing them on the hands of my friend Beta since I first met her in Grade nine.
Speaking of Beta she is an amazing jeweller and we finally met last week for our Christmas dinner - a bit late! I couldn't believe she would give me these top sellers and the very earrings I have been drooling over for ages. I LOVE THEM! Dangly leaves. Also, the report is in, her baby -well, he seems more of a boy these days- loves sleepy rabbit. The rabbit stays in the bed and he will go upstairs into the bed, just to hug him! Aw. I am very pleased, you never know with kids!
My apologies because I have made commenting a bit of a pain by having to put on typekey authentication and catcha on due to a showering of some filthy spam comments!
