What does it take for someone to knit something for you?
This picture was taken from my favorite knitting spot on our couch. I'd been feeling under the weather and was feeling extremely pitiful for myself when I looked up and realized that I must be very lucky. My friend, Mitzi, knit me these socks that I call 'good-n-plenty'. I loved those socks from the moment she cast-on...and they ended up being for me!
I'm going out on a limb here, but I can only remember two people ever knitting something for me - Kristy, my ISE3 knit pal, knit me an incredible scarf - and Mitzi knit me these socks.
Knowing how much effort and time go into handcrafting such wonderful gifts make them even more precious to receive.
So, there I was, with my feet up, in front of a fire, candles lit, happy thoughts, knitting in my hands, and a smile on my face to think of how lucky I am to have a friend who cares enough to knit something just for me!
