When I was on my thrifting flurry a few weeks ago, I picked up a lovely necklace made of glass beads - clear with blue in them, and joined with metal pins. I love the clear colour and simple design and think I'll get lots of wear out of it.
And here's a bit of cuteness to look at (ahhhh).
I wanted to post about the first pair of socks I knit, which were a gift for my mum.
- Mountain Colors yarn in Alpine colourway
- 100 g / 350 yards 100% worsted wool
- Ripple Socks pattern
- 2.75mm needles
I really enjoyed learning how to knit socks. The pattern was easy enough and clearly written,and the yarn was wonderfully soft and beautifully dyed. I did find a spot were 2 of the 3 plies were broken, but otherwise I would purchase this yarn again. The colours alone made it wonderful to knit and I loved looking to see what colour would come up next!
