Charlotte Update



Well, I think I am done knitting my sock now, I left the last few stitches held on a few safety pins for my secret partner to weave in after she makes sure the sock is a good fit for her. I used a free internet pattern called "Little Shell Socks" that I hope she will like. I get the impression she likes feminine things. I dyed the yarn myself in her favorite colors-jewel tones of blue, purple, some turquoise, and some burgundy. The flash on my camera blanched them out some, in person they are more distinctive/less all-blue looking. Now I just need to finish up the gifts and goodies I'm sending along with the typed up instructions that include all of my notes.

Oh, Charlotte, that is one yummy looking sock! I like that idea of leaving the toe so that someone can finish off the sock or keep working...hmmm, might have to do that for Eve ;D
