i can post these now, because my mom received her package today ... with the yarn for her birds, some 6mm safety eyes, a bicho, a small format crochet magazine, and her cute & amazing blue bird-themed dishcloths !
these were a quick knit, as i made before from this booklet. i only used half the ball of yarn. so, i wonder if i can get two from the remaining (so-called)half?!
next up, tiger striped opal socks !
i took the advice of jen regarding knitting both socks at once, after i knitted my first mean green girly sock. other than purchasing a second set of crystal palace dpns, the process of knitting both socks is rather ... fine. i like the idea of being finished with a sock (pattern) when both socks are finished ... second sock syndrome bites me in the ass every time! but now, it's okay. second sock is only a few rows away ....
