Aren't they lovely?
These are the socks that my friend Michelle knit out of the self-striping sock yarn I hand-dyed for her for Christmas. I am so pleased with how they turned out - the credit is due to Michelle's great knitting skills.
I also finished up my Silk Garden hat last night while watching a bunch of stuff I had recorded on the DVR (Coupling, No Reservations, and the documentary about Life After Man - in case you were interested). Oh my I was sitting close to Michelle! (Note to self, sit further back and lift up the chin...)
Here's a close up of the colours in the hat - like I mentioned before, pretty muted all the way through. I like it - in fact, I am still wearing it right now for no good reason other than I like it.
