I used to hate knitting socks. I love it now that it's about the only thing I can wear here in the desert. Anyhow, I finished my first self-designed pair last night, and they are cute, and I will post a picture as soon as I make a light box, which I've been wanting to do for a long time.
Yesterday I got the first shipment of the 2007 Socks That Rock yarn 'n stuff (stuff being a binder and a button and a very cute teeny tiny skein of yarn for emergency use). The yarn they sent is too beautiful for words, so that will also have a picture (soon, I swear).
My daughter, who finds the best stuff online, sent me this link, in case you are looking for pirate bandages or other cool stuff. http://www.mcphee.com/index.html
