I hope everyone is doing well today. I think I have made it through birthday madness. September is crazy for me and my family and friends. There are two or three birthdays everyweek this month. I love it, but it makes me very busy.
When I got home from my birthday party on Saturday there was a package on our doorstep. Will said 'Oh, you got something in the mail from overseas'. I had no idea who it could be from. We had been in the car for over two hours coming back from the in-laws and I was tired. The package perked me right up. I opened it to find a box filled with yarn, shortbread and a little toy bear for Autumn. My wonderful friend, Tracy, from Somerset had sent me a box of goodies as a house warming present. It such a nice surprise. Here is what she sent.
In another group that I belong to on Ravelry, we have been making a pair of socks. I finally finished mine. One of the other ladies said the heel was hard to figure out from the pattern and she used an after thought heel. I have never made crochet socks before and when I got to the heel I decided I would try an after thought heel also. The pattern was Paton's Women's Twisting Lace Socks. The heel I came up with on my own. Here are the socks.
