Rose the Gypsy recently returned a needle that she borrowed from me back in April.
She added a couple of things to the package...
Thing the first: A sock blank from Yarnover New York (who knew?) in color "I Love Yarn" (d'ya think?). She got it at Annie & Co. How is it I have never been to that shop?
What is particularly brilliant about the sock blank is that the contrasting cuff and toes are built right into the blank.
I am not going to knit the socks quite yet because I enjoy the blank as an objet d'art.
Thing the second: She also sent a book to help me use up my leftovers, which I am still not very good at.
I am planning on taking leftovers on the cruise in December to make Christmas mittens for the grandkids ... that should work, right? I mean, if I'm on a boat in the tropics and I pack odd balls and leftovers I will get some used up ... right?
