Socks and Cards

I finished a pair of socks for Thing 1 last night. Here she is before school this morning, modeling:

She picked this fun sparkly yarn out of my stash. I think it's from Cherry Tree Hill Yarn. The pattern is from Sensational Knitted Socks, one of my favorite sock books. It's just an easy baby cable pattern.

I also finished some ATCs for a Swap-Bot trade. This is my second attempt at ATCs and I really enjoy making them.

For this trade, I had to make things fromy my partner's profile. I'm pretty pleased with the results. The one on the upper left has a shrinky-dink deer. The one on the upper right is my favorite. Here's a close-up:

The "beach" is sandpaper. I love the sparkly paper I used for the water. I wish I could draw or paint at all well (even my stick figures look sickly!) but at least I can cut and glue.
