Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers out there!
I spent yesterday with my Mom. I showered her with yarn, and flowers and of course, handknits.
Unfortunately, like most prototypes, the design needs a little more work. It's a wee bit too snug, and while the yarn is absolutely gorgeous to look at, it's just a little too scratchy to have on a sensitive neck.
So, back to the drawing board. Mom will get a revised version (and of course she gets to keep the aforementioned flowers and yarn) and this handspun will be used for something a little further from the skin - I'm thinking a nice hat!
Today, I've been hard at work putting some patterns together. Mom helped me take some decent pics of my Morning Glory socks.
I absolutely LOVE lace socks - I need to make some more!
Another pattern I pulled together is available now!
Introducing Octopussy! This little freebie is a nice way to use up bits of left over sock yarn, and keep your cats happy in the process!
