I'm really, really glad that you love your socks Lesley! By the way, congratulations on graduating from college. That's something I have yet to do in my life, but someday, I'm going back to finish ... maybe not physics or astronomy, but I still think I will someday go back and finish. However, I do have to correct you on something, I'm from outside of Sacramento, not San Diego!

Love those socks, they are beautiful. I made some socks last summer with the blueberry waffle stitch. I love that cardi too. What pattern was it again? Is that using the Silky Wool?

Oops- premature publishing. The cardi looks amazing! And those buttons are great- where did you pick them up? Did you make up that pattern?
