With the beginning of December, a package from my sister arrived. It was a surprise and a lovely one at that. Amongst other things, she sent me this tea package, which is a Advent calendar. One tea bag for 24 days in December. I've never seen this before, and I think it's a most lovely idea, and a great alternative to chocolate Advent calendars (not that I have anything against chocolate).
Remember these: Mary Maxim Gemstone socks - all four singles
This is finished pair # 2
and pair # 3
There's still one single sock waiting for his partner to be a pair, but I don't feel like knitting this sock right now. I've worn # 2 several times, and washed it by hand, and by machine and it's holding up really well.
So, well, knitting four single socks was not a good idea. I'd rather knit a pair and be done with it.
