I got this package from my Sockret pal yesterday.
She sends me the most terrific things!
A foot care pack (foot scrub, foot cream, toe divider & nail polish)
in an awesome zippered pouch, 6 stitch markers,
the cutest, dainty earings that she made,
2 balls of cotton yarn, & a sweet little red satiny box.
Merry Christmas!! :-)

Here is my Snow Thistle!

I found this sock pattern in a leaflet from Schachenmayr.
It was for knee high socks so
I modified it to a shorter version. There was no name, only a number.
I really needed a name for the sock because numbers just
don't cut it with me!
A very artistic gal from my Yahoo knitting group
came up with one that couldn't be
more suitable. Thank you so very much Susan!
