I am assuming they didn't bring home any bears but she only texted me. I haven't actually spoken to her yet. I'm sure she's drowning in laundry about now.
The socks I knit for our Claudia actually fit her! Yes, I had doubts. Yeah, I know I'm good, but I still worry. She recently got some not good kitty news, so I'm glad I could send her some happy ORANGE! love.
The socks are Harris Tweed, knit toe-up, using CCSRs and a sewn bind off on US 1 (2.25 mm) circular needles, magic looped. The yarn is Opal in what I can only guess is the ORANGE! colorway. (If any of the non-knitters want that translated, just let me know.) Who said we're too old to learn a new language? ;^)
Think I could talk Claudia into modeling all future socks for me? It's not like I'll ever be that tall or tan.
Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go look for stitch markers. I only need 48 for the Niebling. Good thing I've got at least 60 in my knitting bag.
Happy Monday, people!
