My mom started knitting in November (well, she started again after a couple projects more than 30 years ago) and these are her first attempt at socks. I'm so impressed! They are the softest, most comfortable cotton - and the color is a perfect match with my couch (don't you try to color coordinate your outfits with your couch?!). She threw in some nasty (I mean that in the nicest way) Peeps, a quilting magazine, and four fabrics (three of which are for the quilt she wants me to make her this summer based on Kaffe Fassett's Leafy Rosy pattern).
And here are some more photos of the bag I made for Celine in England for the swap organized by Barbara now that it's arrived. I made it by adapting Kristin La Flamme's Süße Sac pattern. I also included some Finnish goodies, including Fazer chocolate, Nordqvist tea, and some Marimekko napkins (to match the Marimekko fabric). It may still be cold here in Vaasa, but it's been super sunny!
