I just love the special issues the magazines publish this time of year. The holiday issues that start showing up in October really get me revved up for the season. Now, Interweave Press has a brand new publication, Accessories. What a great idea! Lots of small projects that are perfect for last minute gifts.
Lorna's Laces is lucky enough to have two projects in this issue.
These are Nancy Bush's Infant's Fancy Silk Socks. How sweet!
This photo sure brings back memories....we had that book on the shelf when I was growing up. I remember sitting on my dad's lap "reading" it with him. He didn't read storybooks with me that much. More often, it would be the newspaper rather than a book. It sounds a little weird, but it worked for us. I guess as a kid I didn't care as much about what we were reading so much as getting some one-on-one time with him. Coming from a family with six kids, you grabbed the attention any way you could.
The other project is from Ann Budd. It's called The Frothy Scarf and it's made from our Helen's Lace.
Since Helen's Lace comes in big 1250 yard skeins, you could get several of these from a single ball.
Actually both of these projects are small enough that you could probably get multiples from a single skein. With the baby socks, it would be a nice way to use up some of those "orphans" we all seem to accumulate somehow.
