Live Creatively

A kniting gift to someone who gets it

So this is why I’ve been MIA for the last week or so. Gagan’s cousin, who has become a very good friend of mine is leaving this week. She crochets and I knit. Together we have a lot in common. And…she is one of the few cousins (perhaps the only one) who values hand made things. If you recall, Gagan’s aunt helped me with my sock last month? She is her daughter…

So last few nights I kept all my sewing projects aside and got to work on these socks. She came over this weekend, I was knitting till the last minute. Believe it or not, we still have some snow in our front yard, and while stepping in, her socks got wet. When she asked to borrow some socks, I surprised her with my hand knit socks and said “Maybe these will help” 🙂 She was so touched! And later when I was taking photos of the sock to share with you all, she said “Wow, I’ve never been a foot model before”.

And now that the socks are with their new owner, I can go back to sewing 🙂 After all, I have to make not one but two garments this month. (Since I am away most of April).

Here are the socks.
