The socks are being knit from some lovely Spunky Eclectic Tough Sock, that I had been saving for just the right person. It is an absolute pleasure to knit with. The mittens are knit from some stash Wool Ease in Ranch Red, which defies all attempts to contain the photo saturation.
The crocheted blankets are still moving along slowly, but they don't look all that different at the moment. And although I don't think I had mentioned it yet, I did finish the Cotton Candy sweater. I am still on the hunt for the right buttons though. Does anyone out there have a favorite place to hunt for buttons in the Boston area?
