I beautiful gift.......

from a friend sooooo far away.
I don't know how many of you are familiar with Ravelry. Those of you who are, know, what a great Internet Web Site it is. I belong to several Groups, one of my Favorite is the Tausendschoen Group. We had a Knitted Sock Exchange for Christmas.
My package came from Britta in Bonn / Germany :0)
I opened my package today ! And I just absolutely love it !!!! The Socks are gorgeous and fit perfect. I also got some grrrrrreat German Chocolate ( nothing better then German chocolate ), soap, hand lotion, jewelry to sew on socks, and a really cute Good Luck Gnome :0)
Thank you sooooooo much Britta, I LOVE IT !!!!!!!

And since it is so nice outside..........

I need to take advantage of the sunshine. So here I am showing you a picture of a pair of Regia Cross Over Color, also in Nutkin. Have you already noticed ....??? This is one of my favorite pattern. This pair is a Christmas Order, and will be delivered soon :0)

After a long fight with my Computer.........

I am back on :0) If it wasn't for my super smart son, he is an absolute Genius with Computers. We had a major Virus, and had to buy a new Operating System to get it back up and running................I realized I am absolutely handicapped without this dumb thing !!!!! What did we do without it before.
Anyway I am back............... I opened a shop on Etsy a while back, it is going pretty good . A customer from Green Bay Wisconsin, asked me if I could knit her 11 pair of socks with yarn she had purchased a while back, in hopes to learn to knit herself.
Then I had a customer call me yesterday afternoon, wanting 10 pair of Fingerless Gloves............needles to say , I AM BUSY.
Here is a pair of " Nutkins" for my Customer in Green Bay, made from Crazy Monkey Creations Panda Toes
