I finished a pair of Dragonfly socks last year, YAY!

While I was working on it the little guy asked if he could have a matching pair. So I immediately cast on a pair of child tube socks, knit from the toe up. These go really quickly and were cast off and promptly forgotten. I had some time for finishing this weekend and did a lot of weaving in those pesky ends.

Of course, 4 year olds have feet that grow very quickly, so these will only see a few more uses before they are too small. Oh well, I got two pairs of socks from my 2 skeins of Stroll and a smiley kid.

This one gets a post because it gave me fits to close that second toe. But all done now and ready to keep some toes warm.

Cross Stitch... really?

I dug out a small cross stitch kit from my stash to keep me busy during my lunch.
It is a Dimensions kit called Live Simply. Just the bottom third to go.
