The little doily/linen is from my friend for my birthday. (Thanks Joni!) I thought it was a nice backdrop since it shares most of the same colors as the yarn.
I finished a pair of socks, yes, for Mom, this week too. You have to wait, Mom! They are for a special occasion. Besides, it's too hot to wear wool right now.
The yarn was a real bargain from Elann.com. I think it was $20.00 for a bag of ten skeins. Sure beats paying $20.00 for one skein of yarn, but sometimes you just have to suck it up and pay $20.00, or more for a skein, don't you? Of course, the sock blockers are my wonderful blockers from TheLoopyEwe.com. WONDERFUL place if you haven't checked it out yet. Well worth checking out and well worth ordering from. I know, I know, I say that every time I mention them, but it is true!
Hopefully I'll have more to show for soon. Here's hoping next week is much, much better!
