I really have finished things lately, and I'm on the second sleeve of my Ariann sweater. I often have to decide between photographing things for the blog and actually doing things, so the blog falls by the wayside.

This is a pair of socks knit and given to me by Tamara. They are my first gift socks and my first Koigu socks. I really love them! I think they're better knit than most of the socks I knit for myself, as well.
This is Elizabeth Zimmermann's Baby Surprise Jacket, knit in Socks That Rock medium weight, Farmhouse colorway. This is a really interesting and quick pattern, and it shows off variegated colors really well. The jacket is a gift for a friend from law school, who is expecting later this month.

I have taken some photos of my latest handspun, and they will be up soon. (I have to save something so I don't wait another 2 weeks or more before posting!)

Weeeeeee I'm tickled you love the socks. One would think it crazy to say someone knit a pair of socks for you that fit better than ones you could make yourself. One would be wrong, because I received a pair of socks and they DO fit better than any pair I've made for myself. Go figure.

Cute socks!

Did you lengthen the surprise jacket? I've seen only one before and I thought the miters were in the front corners of the jacket.

gifts. In modern times, however, when the word "perfume" is said, most people think of department store fragrances,

which consist mainly of the concentrated oil and alcohol solution. Nevertheless, as more and more people are finding

out about them, perfume oils are experiencing great popularity. Here are some interesting facts about perfume oils:
