Jane always comes back in with something delicious on her needles. This time, she took a few patterns from her new favorite book, Favorite Socks and whipped up a few pair of socks. The blue one is out of Frog Tree's newest sock yarn, Pediboo and the greenish one is out of Madelinetosh Pashmina. I know -- cashmere socks. Yum!
We had our latest Microwave Felting class last Saturday. Here the gals are felting their bags with amazing results.
Knitting for your man -- these ladies are almost done with their sweaters. What a great class. We will be seeing more from Gary very soon!
