My (slightly belated due to inclement weather) birthday package from Des & the kids!

Left: one knit & one crocheted dish/wash cloth, 1/2 yard of beautiful purple quilting cotton semi-solid, a skein of hand-dyed yarn, and a pair of handknit short socks with Knitpicks Glimmer Sport

Right: beautiful lace & cable pattern in the socks. They sparkle!
