I think I can say that I make a lot of nice things. Most of them I give away as presents, knowing that the recipient appreciates a handmade gift. And so this one will go to a worthy home.
My godmother loves handmade stuff. She's very creative herself; painting, working with leaves and flowers and stems. I had to make her something extra special. I found this pattern on Ravelry. It's pretty easy yet it looks complicated (isn't that just the greatest thing?).
The yarn... I dyed up this skein of twined wool last spring and fell in love with the colors. I didn't intend to dye with this yarn that instant, but I had some dye left and well, I just tossed it in. It took up the dye in a totally different way than the other skeins I had dyed. Perfect for this job.
The needles... I love the knitpicks interchangeables I got. They are smooth, pointy and the cables are flexible. I used 5mm needles and the smallest cable and it was like waking up on holliday.
Now, back to the socks. I haven't finished the Kaffe Fasset ones yet. I'm knitting on two pairs of wedding socks that need to be finshed by februari 6th. I'll probably finish them on Februari 5th, 2 o'clock in the morning.
