Originally posted on June 16, 2005. No moss on this rolling stone Lately, I’ve been thinking about a family friend who has helped me move on numerous occasions. That got me thinking… exactly how many times have I moved? Not counting all the times I’ve helped friends move… My first …

Pheasant L’orange

Yarn: Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock in “Satsuma” Pattern: Pheasant Run (Ravel it!) Notes: Socks knit for a class on lace socks that I was teaching; not decided if I’m going to keep them or give them as a Christmas present. I love the combination of yarn and pattern – neither …

Linkdump
