crazy great.

First, a finished pair of socks!

'Retro Rib Socks' from the Winter 2004 Interweave Knits
Socks that Rock in the 'cracked canyon' colour way
These took about a week and a half to finish. STR is some really great stuff, the colours are outstanding - I wore them all day & they are super cozy!


Second:
When I came home today there was a small package waiting for me! With curious and anxious hands I opened it up to find this!....

An awesome broach made of wool! I commented on how great I thought this was when I saw my friend Shannon's photo on flickr - and now it's mine! She sent it to me in the mail along with a really awesome vintage clothing label. AWESOME! I put it on right away! Thank You Shannon! I love it!

So it was already a super great day! And then my doorbell rang & at my door was the total angel of a cab driver who had come to return my wallet!!! **With everything in it!!**

Could. not. be. happier.

Fantastic! My bf also got his wallet back when he left it in a cab. Hooray for Toronto cabbies! Oh - and I never should have pooh-pooh-ed that STR colourway involving peach - you're socks are definitely peachy-keen!
