and i wish it was going to be mine. and i'm kinda selfish, and it could still be mine ..., but i feel confident that corbett will love it too, so i know it's going to a good home.
and then, today, i was thinking, i bet jim (corbett's partner) would love some man-lace too, but perhaps something crocheted. which means, when this baby is off the needles, i will be shopping for a stitch pattern of something manly-crocheted. seriously.
stuart. stuart feels a bit neglected, because he's jonesing for something new too. but, i don't know what he really wants. well, i think he wants lots of things ... a sleeping bag, a man-shawl, new pantalones, pj's, etc .... but, what he'll actually get ... hmmm, i don't know !
ps. please feel free to email for measurements and favorite colors of my little pixie !
i could not capture the true beauty of this socken yarn. the colors are more vibrant, more green, more blue, more beautiful ! this is lorna's laces shepherd sock in 407 devon. of course, these little hanks will someday be a pair of socks.
and we save the best for last .... buttons !!! handmade by my lovely artist friend leanne. she's the same one who made my knitting bowl (which, i use all the time, at home, as i knit hypoteneuse).
these buttons are about 3/4" square ... but with one a bit longer on one edge at a whopping 1". i love them ! thanks troll !
