Purple set of smalls

After I gave my aunt the set of smalls for her birthday gift, her friend loved it so much that my aunt asked me if I was willing to make another set for this friend of hers for her birthday. I just finished these today and again love how they turned out. It is amazing how much a different thread and fabric can do for a design. It sometimes completely changes it. Here are some shots.

Now I am going to get back to knitting my cape. I seem to have misplaced the pattern for it though, but I am sure I will find it. It was here somewhere yesterday.

Happy Easter to those celebrating!

    Linda –

    just found your tutorial for making the scissor case – it’s very clear – thanks! can you tell me what the stitch count is on the cloth you used?

    btw, many years ago, i spent 2 days at Mid-Summer in your beautiful city – it’s a very beautiful place and the almost-all-day light was amazing.
