Ask and Ye Shall Receive


I sent an email to the members of our family-by-love, who got nearly all of my hand-knitted gifts this year, asking for a photo of them wearing the prezzies. And I got a picture! This is a bit fuzzy, but seeing them really helps me to feel they like the gifts and the work that went into them. The guys are wearing the seamen's-style scarves and you can see the boys in their colorful hats front and center. The slippers that two of the women are wearing came from a lovely pattern that one of my seniors made; they are knitted double-stranded, and the design she uses makes them look nearly like tapestry.
