Surprise Package

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?

I don't think I could knit that blank either. Too much fun hanging on the wall.
