Yarn: Cherry Tree Hill Supersock Select (Spring Frost)
Needles: US 2 - two circulars
Cuffs: 1 x 1 rib (2 inches)
Cherry Tree Hill yarn is wonderful to knit, and I was pleased that the socks were mates even without trying: the yarn pooled nearly the same on each side.

Quilt of Valor
59 x 72
It was fun to sew with colors other than the traditional red, white, and blue. I'm sure a veteran who is an outdoorsman/woman will be drawn to this quilt.
Other posts about this quilt can be seen here and here.

|size 9 socks|
Yarn: Berroco Sox Metallic (Color #1380) - a gift from Katherine
Needles: US 2
Yarn remaining: 1.3 ounces
Socks are the same size, but the blockers are not which is why the sock on the right is stretched more than the one on the left.
The yarn has a gold filament throughout which adds a bit of bling to the socks, but it is nearly impossible to capture in a photo.
Thanks, Katherine for surprising me with two skeins of this lovely yarn. I hope to cast on another pair soon.

|unknown bus lady and bus driver|
Southern Japan tour
I wonder if the buses still have bus ladies and if the drivers still wear the uniform and white gloves.

|Adding the center panel|
I plan to add another brown frame around the entire piece and then a wide green border.
