Can I just say that there is nothing like coming home after a long week (very long), to the most delicious cup of tea and knitting? See this tea above, well it was a souvenir from the sister from London. Why oh why does all my favorite teas come from overseas? Anyhoo...it is now the weekend and there is no whining allowed on my weekends. Except when the topic is weather related. ;)
Yarn~ Fondant Fibre Superwash Polwarth in the color Harmony.
Guess who finished her May socks? Can I just mention what a treat this pattern was to knit? Woodland Walk Socks is a pattern from Olivia of This Handmade Life. It is one of those patterns that where you are excited to finish each leaf and before you know it, you have a finished sock. I love those kinds of patterns.
Now, I am not sure about you but one of the best things about finishing up a pair of socks is that it provides me with mini skeins. One of these will be saved for my "taking forever" blanket and the others I will swap with others. If you are interested in a mini skein swap, there is a thread in the My Sister's Knitter Raverly group where you can get your swap on. It tends to be quite during the warmer months, but if you post that you are wanting to swap, you will no doubt get a taker.
Okay so I mentioned the souvenirs that my sister brought me back from London. Tea and an adorable tea strainer. Seriously does it get better than that? Of course yarn would have been brilliant, but if you can believe it the sister did not visit any yarn stores. I did advise her that she may have to turn in her crocheter badge. ;) Then again I am that person that dreams of going on an across the U.S. yarn crawl, one where I visit each state for the sole purpose of visiting the yarn stores there. Heh.
I am going to leave you with a sweet song and wish you the very best day today!
