mother’s day

Posted on | May 10, 2010 | 13 Comments

Felix’s present to me, a beautiful drawing of mom (me!) wearing a red dress. Red is his favorite color. I put it up on my wall and have been smiling ever since.

I knit some basics socks for my mom. She is a great knitter but never makes socks. These are kind of roomy, more like cozy bed socks, than socks to wear with shoes. I love self-striping sock yarn! They seemed to knit themselves I was so amused with watching the stripes appear.

…and us, posing together…

    Oh, I love this post, Kat. The mug is adorable, and the photo of the three of you is priceless! You look like your mom! Okay, I have to ask, what is the cool plant by you on the pretty patio? Is that the same plant I asked about last year?? HAHAHA! I love all of the love and color in this post! I know you had a happy Mother’s Day. It appears as though it was perfect!

    One more thing. . .what are the red things hanging from the tree? Are they part of the tree? The picture is full of color! I keep seeing new things in the picture each time I look.

    Maybe Felix is a budding designer! What would that dress look like all knit up in red pima cotton?

    Knit themselves!?! WHY that never happens to me? I love kniting but that’s the difference between us : on you it looks easy ;-D
