 A dear reader sent me a gift. She told me I would like it :-)
When I opened the envelop I was blown away. I never, never expected to find my favorite fabric in the envelop. I love to use it and I use always a little amount in my quilts afraid that I ran out of the fabric. (it was a fat quarter) Like here.
Now I have enough of this fabric for years. I have already an idea for a first use.
Thank you so much Nadine, you made my day.

My first knitted pair of socks.

Here they are: my first knitted pair of socks :-) 

It was a pleasure to knit them.

Tho, I have some issues to learn like how to pick up stitches by the heel.

I used Susan's B. Anderson's pattern. Her instructions are so clear and easy to follow. She has great video tutorials too. Like how to do the kitchener stitch to close the toe.

Yarn: Lara Grossa Meilenweit. 
Needle size, 2,5 mm dpns.
