I’m home! Until January! I pulled into my Flint, Michigan driveway at 2:00 this morning, and spent all day writing to deadline (and unpacking during breaks). I then took a long bath with some of the lovely stuff I got from Megan in a recent swap, and I’m just now sitting down with a mug of tea, the lover and the kitty, catching up on comments and Bloglines and Flickr.
AND, I finally got to open all the great packages that were waiting for me when I got home.
Sweet Feet sock yarn from Hill Country yarns in a yummy green called “Tadpole”;
sticky notes shaped like the letter P;
quilting pins; great-smelling room fragrance; a bag of dark chocolates;
and the summer issue of Rebecca.
I LOVE YOU, SECRET PAL!
FROG THIS SOCK.
The pattern is from wolhalla, and I love it. But I used Lorna’s Laces and One Sheep Hill (both lighter fingering weight) on 2.25mm needles, and it came out way too snug for my high instep. I can’t even get it on my foot. (When will I learn?) I’ll have to try again with some big fat Colinette Jitterbug on US 2s.
