|getting a good photo of your own feet is tough|
You'd have thought that Restless Needles would be busy enough through her Mad March, what with worries about grandkids' health, tax preparation, getting ready for her own vacation, and broken bones resulting from a fall. But through all that craziness, she still found the time to knit these gorgeous Patina socks for me! And how thoughtful is this? She stalked through my Ravelry project pages to find my foot size so that the socks would fit perfectly. And fit perfectly they do! Considering my feet are size 11, that's a lot of knitting.
I should have posted earlier, but when I opened the package I squealed with delight, popped the socks on my feet and headed to the airport. It was these socks that I wore on the plane trip to and from Florida, and a few hours on chilly mornings in Florida as well. They're already well worn! When we returned home I worked my way through the mountains of laundry; my new socks were machine washed, laid flat to dry and are ready to wear again. Now that they're on my feet, I think that's where they'll stay for today. It's 4° this morning, with a forecast high of 7° so some wool socks with a bit of lace are ideal.
