A few days ago, I received a fabulous gift from my daughter. She handed me a hand-knit (by her, of course) pair of wool socks. I have never owned hand-knit socks in my life and I'm thrilled with these. They are soft and warm and the perfect thing to wear around the house or in rubber boots.
Have I mentioned that Madeleine is 13 and that I'm very proud of her accomplishments? She's published a couple of original patterns on Ravelry and is getting a lot of very good feedback from knitters around the world. She's also getting way more hits on her blog than I've ever gotten on mine.
I hope I haven't made anyone who doesn't have a beautiful hand-knit pair of wool socks knit by their kid feel jealous. I'm sure your kid is special too.
