Unfortunately I have lost the band from the yarn so I have no clue what I used, but I do know it was a 4 ply worsted from Lion Brand, probably Wool Ease. The pattern is called 'Baba's Bed Socks' and I think I got it from Ravelry. They're nice and cushy and should keep her feet warm this winter.

I've also been working on the prototype of the 'project' I will be sharing with the ladies that are taking my embroidery workshop class next month.
(and yes, you can laugh, because it DOES look like a boob!!)
I think I've managed to cover pretty much all the basic stitches in this project. The finished size is 8 1/2 x 11", which means they can put it into a binder and keep it for future reference. At the very least, I suppose they could mount it on the wall and use it for dart practice!
Sorry to use my posts for this, but I'm still trying to figure out how to contact Heather M. Heather?....I still can't get through to you. I'm afraid I don't know how to change your settings on wordpress, not being familiar with it. I also can't follow through to see your blog so I can contact you through that. If you could email me marmic1954 (at) hotmail (dot) com & give me your blog addy I can visit you! btw - does anybody happen to know how Heather can change her settings in wordpress from being 'no reply'? Perhaps you could leave a comment on my blog and let her know. Thanks!
