Dear internet, I give you Joy's Birthday Socks
They look a little big in this picture, but I washed them and they shrunk just enough to be perfect. I sent them off and I hope she loves them. The yarn is Cherry Tree Hill Supersock, in a colorway that I am pretty sure is Indian Summer, but it could be Caribou Creek. Just can't be too sure since the skien was not labeled (which drives me crazy, but it was too pretty to pass up).
And check out these lovely things:
made for a baby that, alas, will be a boy. Blue stuff is in the works. These are waiting for a baby girl . . . .
