tuesday treasures.

yesterday i received a little present from my grandma. a pair of freshly knitted socks!
as long as i've known my grandma has always knitted socks, normally for her brothers and son-in-laws and just recently, me!


there's nothing quite as warm and snuggly as a pair of hand-knitted socks :D

maybe it's time for me to start learning?



i'm more than a little keen, but i think i should be finishing some blankets off first...

There's nothing nicer than handknitted socks. My mum made some for me last year and they are the best. Now you'll have cosy toes.

I'm just a little jealous. I'd love some hand knitted socks. The shops have lovely yarn and adorable patterns but I don't have the skills.
Yours are gorgeous.
