Saturday morning, I had a lovely surprise. When I got up in the morning, I found a package of Long-Jing (Dragon Well) Green Tea on my desk.
Later I found out, that friends of my son, got it for me! This tea tastes delightful! Thank you very much, Melony and Adri!
Speaking of son. After my pretty Eesti Trail Hiking socks (by Nancy Bush), had an accident in the washing machine, and shrunk to child sized socks, he needed another pair to replace them.
I knit him these: 100% wool, simple, no fuss. (will I never learn?)
They didn't even make it into the washing machine. They felted on his feet. But worst, I did a star toe, and had to add a new ball of yarn on the sole, and it hurt his feet.
Well he begged me for another pair, and this time, I used some superwash wool, and did my ususal toe decreases on the side, and was careful to add the new ball of yarn on the instep, rather than the sole of the socks. Everybody is happy now! :o)
I did not wash/block them, he put them on, right of the needles.
And here's a photo of Maggie and Denny snuggling.
It lasted only a couple of minutes though. Denny is too much Alpha dog, to enjoy it.
