New socks


The pink socks are finished! I love this color- reminds me of cotton candy. This is the first pair that I have made with a cuff to turn down. AThe yarn is a cotton/wool mix from Regia. The next pair I cast on is going to be for my Mom- yellow.
Right now I am working on finishing up a mail art. It needs to go into the mail on Monday, which shouldn't be a problem.
The bee scissor fob and the scissors are part of what I sent to Von for our Gemini birthday exchange. As she has received it and opened it ;-) I thought I could post a pic now. When I picked up the colors, I was afraid I was going to hate it ,but when it was finished I was so pleased with it that I think I might have to make one for myself.
I did manage a walk already this morning so I can spend the rest of the day between stitching and laundry.

What cute socks!

So Von's received her gifts, you've received yours ... I wonder if mine have been received? I'm also still stalking our mailman....

Your fob looks fab, and so do the socks! WHEN will I learn to knit them myself? As for you visiting Junghans in Aachen: let me know when you're planning to go, and perhaps we can meet there!

Rachael, your socks are adorable. :D
I used the scissors you sent me today and the fob is just the right weight and the design is so sweet.
Hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day!
