A crafty gift

Standard

While on the subject of woolly things I thought I would share

a little happy time I had recently …..

In the summer my oldest friend

(though she isn’t old, at least 15 years younger than me,

but she IS my oldest friend because we have been friends since about 1978ish)

came to visit …..

Angie  lives in New Zealand and so a visit from her is

VERY SPECIAL and looked forward to with great anticipation …..

She is very gifted in many ways, but she  is a very gifted pianist.

We first met when she was studying and for 50p and her tea she taught our boys piano!

We were very privileged :0)

But I want to show my pressy that Angie made for me and popped in the post

aren’t they GORGEOUS!

they came in the post because they weren’t quite finished when she had to go …

How about a closer peep …

The yarn is Kaffe Fassett and the pattern is called

Mermaid …… because it twirls round like her tail!

This is Angie’s 40th pair of socks …… and not a pair for her yet!

Ever Hopeful!

OK ….. in a minute then !

Whatever you are doing …… have a good day!

I’m addicted to decopatch coathangers!

  1. These sox are very cool, indeed!
    Great cuff detail. Won’t find anything like these cuties anywhere.

    Lucky you, Val! !

  2. Hi Val,

    I’m hoping I have got the right one – have you just ‘adopted’ Joe?

    If so please let me know via my email as your comments always come up as no reply.

    Oh and do show pictures of him in his new home… Sam says hello!

  4. Aa…you have also yellow tennis ball! Dear Bella also I love them! Socks are really beautiful, better than my black boots, which I have to use sometimes if I have problem in my toes.
