These socks in the colors he requested last summer when we were together were part of his birthday package. I hope they still fit, as we've heard rumors of how quickly he is growing!
This is the second hat that I've made from this pattern, this time for our son-in-law's birthday. It's a fairly quick knit.
Lately I've been trying to complete some of my numerous UFOs like this pair of socks. (As you can see sock 2 doesn't quite match up but no one will see that toe in my shoes. Although it doesn't look like it, they are the same size. Sock #1 just slithered down the sock blocker while drying.) I fell in love with this yarn color the minute I saw it! The pattern is free on Ravelry, and I've used the SKYP stitch on lots of other socks. It's a winner.
This crazy amaryllis was a Christmas gift from our kind neighbor, and I just had to share it. Have you ever seen an amaryllis with 3 blooms? Who knew what was in that bulb? I guess it's making up for the one I bought last year that had no blossom at all! Have a wonderful weekend.
