I got DH to take a photo of me wearing the crocheted bolero. (100 he says. Most of them with me saying use the longest lens length, don’t get the dog watering the bushes, etc.) I needed a new photo for Facebook, as I just joined a group for a biology class and my Second Life avatar didn’t look right for that.
I had a whole pile of packages when I got home! A Bacardi muddler with a bat on the business end, a King Arthur Flour shot glass (really a measure for small amounts of liquid.) Other things that arrived were 560 yards of sport merino from LeeLee’s Unique Buttons and Yarns Etsy shop.It smells sweet and feels soft. I am thinking knee socks.
I am also nearly to the heel on the second Eloise sock, after a few days of crochet.
Here is the first Eloise, posing with my Skecher’s Cali shoe. I don’t think purl ridges and heavier yarn do too well. I will have to stick to thinner sockies with these.
