Very belated appreciation for my secret quonsar March 31, 2017 3:45 PM   Subscribe

I got my amazing, delightful, thoughtful gift package from miratime way back at the end of November...while I was in the middle of a combination of post-election freakout and literally the biggest project of my entire career. So I didn't say thank you properly, and now it's almost April! I especially want to show off these socks that I made with the yarn she gave me. This project has been fun and emotionally soothing and the socks look amazing. :) Thanks again!

PS: the cats looooooved the catnip toy. Alas, the tiny feathers are long gone.

This post doesn't make any sense, where are the cat pics?

I love this! It's like the internet equivalent of those people down the street from me who still have their Christmas tree up.

Those are lovely! I have bookmarked that pattern!

Paging Billiebee, Billiebee to the 'socks I knitted from Quonsar yarn' thread. ;), here are the socks I knitted this year with the sock yarn I was kindly gifted as part of last year's amazing Quonsar haul.

Oh, and here's a cat. (his name is Creamsicle; he's kind of a jerk)
