mermaid blue warmth

February is never an easy month for me and this one has been a bit of whammy. But wearing these new beauties is sure helping me to enjoy my days.

I let my friend choose the color for me. Did she call it or what?

Many thanks to my new friend who accepted soap in payment for these gorgeous mermaid blue merino wool works of art (that also happen to keep my hands warm when I'm writing, answering e-mails, knitting, reading or paying bills).

I'm giving her more than 2 bars of soap by the way,
this is just to show you my new winter woods soap (smile).

    These look rad! I can't knit anymore but I love fingerless arm warmers. It makes them even more wonderful that you bartered for them. I'm huge on bartering, when I can. Wish I could trade you artisan bread for some homemade soap!

      I feel that with friends who can knit like this and want to share who needs to learn? Of course I love knitting myself but I am NO Where near this skill level. She was done these in less than a month! I'll just plod along knitting and purling but it's hard to be motivated to do so when people can create these works of art for me in less time than it takes me to choose a yarn color!
