Wrapped in love

I'm a slow knitter. I knit often, I love knitting, and I produce the goods occasionally. Some items have special love knit into them, like the Love Socks for my favourite sister - now finished, posted (a little late for the relevant birthday), received and loved (foot hugs, she called them). They're the best I can do in the hugging department just now, as she is so far away, and feeling sad. Also, for the new wee one coming into our family in July, a new blankie. The pattern is Vortex Shawl and it is made with beautiful soft merino, cashmere, nylon blend sock yarn, expertly and gorgeously hand dyed by my friend Carrie over at Fibrewebs.
Even though he will be a Queensland baby, I figure that it does get a bit cooler there through winter, and this is the best I can do to wrap him in love when I am not there myself.
Sentimental? Moi?
