Surprise, Surprise, Surprise

Wow, look what came in the mail today!! A newsletter, a clover pin, tape measure and a set of 9" US 7 knitting needles from Clover-USA.  I had filled out a customer survey several months ago, and this was a thank you gift. What a nice thing to do.

Finished Socks

I have finally finished the Cascading Leaves Socks by Jeanie Townsend. It is a very well written pattern and easily followed. I used the handdyed yarn I purchased from my friend Nina's etsy shop in Finland. Details can be found on my ravelry page. Unfortunately, the pair is too small for me. Hopefully my Mom will be able to wear them.  Now to finish another project.

Note: Thanks for all the comments on my In Search of the Perfect Sock Knitting Method.  I guess it boils down to personal preference. Also, it helps to work on the socks occasionally and perhaps not having too many items on the needles.
