I've been knitting up the lovliest pair of socks for myself from some yarn I had never heard of until I did a swap in an on-line knitting group I'm part of. I received two balls of this lovely yarn from Anne and everyone in my local knitting circle "ooohed" and "aaahed" over the subtle color transitions.
I'm excited about how pretty they are and the yarn feels good too. (I can tell it will bloom when washed as well....always making it even softer!)
In other news, I finished up the Opal black/grey socks for my DD, have been completing more Christmas knits and made it through the extra projects at work. It's been a little odd putting together a December issue in October; thank goodness for Christmas CD's!
Today is my grandmother's 90th Birthday....so I wish her a very happy birthday and look forward to taking her out for lunch next week.
