Totally unexpected! ^^
I got a gift from Halina, one of my Amazon wishlist books, "Folk Socks" by Nancy Bush.
It is an absolute surprise for me and I am a very happy girl, since socks are one of my best items to knit (next to lace shawls and bags!). I looked through the book quickly on my way home from the post office and I'm already in love with some patterns. ^^
I even thought about the One Pair of Socks a Month project, maybe a KAL? We'll see about that later. ^-^
Of course, I'm not going to leave this situation unanswered, so as soon as I hear from Halina and get to know her preferences, I'm sending a big parcel all the way to Chicago! >^o^<
Yesterday I spent 1,5 hours at the polishing machine and here is the final view of the cat pendant for Robert:
Forgive the funny angle but it's so hard to take a good picture of it now... it's like a mirror and when I tried to take a photo from the front everything got reflected in its surface: me, the camera, the rest of the room... ^^
Last night I had my last class in this school year. So, now I have two months of gathering tools, stones, silver, and ideas, and in September I'm starting another year of my jewellery adventure! ^^
For now in the jewellery field I'm playing with wool and beads, if my swatches turn out fine, I'll show you first results soon!
