the art of knitting




















Aren't these socks gorgeous? My firstborn, Alex, knitted them for me when she was home on spring break. I've never had a pair of hand-knit socks before, and I've never, ever, had such a beautiful pair of socks. I just had to show them off. Thank you, sweetheart!

p.s. - She knits really beautiful handbags, too, as Kath can attest.

I want some!!! Damn those are great! I knit but haven't mastered turns yet, I can knit you a full blown 4 lane highway as far as you want it to go. I do make pillows laughing.
You can set on my deck any day girlfriend! Wouldn't that be great!!

Oh, it would be great. We could sit out there and KNIT, together...and I'd be knitting another 4 lane highway, right beside you, because Alex learned to do all that intricate, beautiful stuff on her own.

There's nothing like a GOOD pair of comfy socks!!! Of course woven with the strains of love and family makes them even BETTER!!!

Yep...those are awesome. Knitting is not one of my talents, but I envy people who can do it well. Looks like Alex qualifies.

Love the socks!!! Just looking at them makes me want to curl up on the couch wearing them while I read. Except these damn hot flashes would have me ripping them off and putting them back on every 20 minutes. Enjoy them!

Oh, and HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!!
