Some things I made recently


These striped socks are the bomb, eh? This is the pair that kicked off 2009 as the Year of the Sock.

The mittens were a birthday present for Grace to wear in blustery Vermont, knitted with yarn from Lea from a pattern sent by my MIL Phyllis. While I was knitting them, they provided an endless source of amusement from Zambians, who found the idea of socks for the hands both marvelous and ridiculous.

Assisting me in the modeling is the boy dog. When I went back for a visit a few weeks ago, he was afraid to come near me. Humans aren't so nice to dogs here.

Cool! I love the photo of my mittens in Africa, playing with a dog. :) Thank you!
