Remember the story about my mom's cashmere socks? The ones I made her for Christmas last year but they didn't fit? (The ones she valiantly tried to make fit, despite the heel being completely underneath her foot.) Well, I ended up with that pair - I had mistakenly thought we had approximately the same size feet - so I benefitted completely from this mistake. I told my mom I would make her a new pair and it took me until recently to finish them. And I was finally able to give them to her last week when she visited.....
That's us with our matching socks. She loves them. And I love mine. They are so incredibly comfortable. (ArtYarns Cashmere Sock yarn -- I'm getting a few colors in soon!)
And look what comes to visit us in our backyard a few times during the summer:
This was the first time we were able to get a picture of it. It's amazing to see it fly in because it has HUGE wings!
