I started knitting these socks in mid-May. The pattern is Waving Lace Socks by Evelyn Clark from the book Favorite Socks. I'm using the yarn Panda Silk by Crystal Palace Yarns. The yarn is a lovely, soft silk-bamboo-merino mix.
I'm generally a very selfish sewist but when the holidays come around, I'm in the mood for giving. But still I have to admit it's always much easier to think of gifts for myself than gifts for others. So, if you're looking for a gift for your best sewing buddy or looking to build your own holiday wish list, I've created today's Holiday Gift Guide for Sewists. These gifts are affordable, stylish and also useful. Read on for all the details.
