Good Morning! I have been working away faithfully on my unfinished projects, although I have been sorely tempted to cast-on several new ones. I finished Ginny's socks (Hurray!) and gave them to her (Hurray!). Now I am finishing the second Hermione Mitten. Since I have shown you the completed first ones, I won't waste your time showing you the second of either. Suffice it to say, the mates look the same (or close enough!)
I have had an idea that I like-I would like to have a Hobbit-style birthday party this summer. (Hobbits give gifts to everyone who comes to their parties). I would like to knit up little things and wrap them and then have a gift exchange (as is done at many a company Christmas party). I think it would be fun. So I am hoping that someone will be around when my birthday comes! Summer birthdays, ugh. Relatives who constantly have their houses on the market, ugh!
Here is a picture of a pair of socks that I knit and gave to my friend Carol who subsequently had to mend them a dozen times. Warning to all who are wooed by the gorgeous colors of Shibui Sock Yarn! It doesn't wear well!
