My Hubby's Birthday Socks

I've been working feverishly and secretly on my hubby's birthday pair of socks, and they are done!  I've found that it takes me a month of working solidly to make a pair...  The pattern is from the Socks a la Carte book again, the yarn is the Rosemary Rocks colorway from Sox That Rock, and I love this wavy pattern!

Silverware Windchimes

I made a few of these windchimes from some old pieces of my grandmother's for my craft shows, they are easy to make and fun to hear!  I couldn't bear to get rid of the last one, so here it is on my back porch!    I used aluminum wire to wrap the pieces and fishing line to attach it all together, this one is hanging from a potato masher...  I'll make more soon with items from the thrift store, then I won't need to keep them all for sentimental reasons!
