A fingerless mitt pattern, Dragon Scales; some luscious Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock in my favorite colors; a bar of handcrafted soap with essentials oils and botanicals (for dry, dragon skin); a box of tea; a washcloth; and the cutest dragon ever! You push on his back and fire (pretend) shoots out his mouth and his wings fly up! Cute!! Also she sent a book. We had been talking about how much we like reading mysteries so JudyS sent one by Mary Daheim, a local author to her. And the setting of the book is a fictional place based on a real place not far from her. I can't wait to read it. Thank you JudyS for a wonderful package. And a big thank you to KathyB for another great swap!
And now for the first finished socks of 2012
(and it's not even the end of January yet! I might be able to get a pair done a month, lol)
My grandmother taught me embroidery when I was eight. When I was ten, she taught me to crochet. I learned to knit (not well) in junior high. In the 70's, needlepoint became my next art. It was while living in Italy, my English friend started me knitting again. Knitting has been my passion ever since.
