Callandra... my birthday socks

Long time no see. I've been knitting I've been participating in the Makin Cookies kal on Rav. April's kal was a Cookie A pattern knitter's choice. I've been wanting to knit Cookie's Flicker socks since last summer. I'm calling these my birthday socks.


pattern: Flicker
yarn: Colinette Jitterbug Velvet Plum
needle: US 1.5 Addi 40"
cast on: April 1, 2009
cast off: April 26, 2009

Yep It's my birthday. I'm 41. Time flies by. This "baby" picture of was taken when I was about 5 years old. This pic signifies the start of the love affair I had with turtleneck tops. I finally stopped wearing them when I was in my 30s lol


My mom wouldn't let me wear makeup until I was 18, but she never stopped me from wearing jewelry. I'm rockin' those huge earrings lol
