You don't know how often as I am pouring some tea that I wish I could share a cup with you all. How lovely would that be?
Many of you know that I am working on knitting many socks in 2016. February socks were tedious as the first pair the yarn wasn't working, the second pair got lost on the lightrail, the third pair the pattern and yarn combo didn't work (frogging in process above). I am glad to say that the 4th time in this case was the charm.

Whew...now I can work on the March sock with a clear path. :) The above socks are for a friend and I think she will appreciate the wild colors, but I am going to make sure to make her some "calmer" colored socks soon.

Oh and I did sneak in a pair of socks for me. I think if I could have a drawer full of this Opal Little Prince line of socks I would be super happy. I love the Little Prince and the fact that as knitters we can have themed knits is rather brilliant.
Many of my socks are going to a wonderfully deserving friend this year. On the topic of knitting for others there are a couple happenings around blogland that are geared towards gift knitting. Beautiful Tracey is organizing the ultimate virtual baby shower. Also lovely Steph is asking for donations for SCI (Seaman's Church Institute). Such thoughtful and wonderful ladies!
I will leave you with something fun. Arne & Carlos have an awesome Youtube channel. I adore them and all their projects which ranges from knitting, crochet and even gardening. I want to share a cup of tea with them as well!
Have the best day today!
