Gifted Gorgeousness - June

The 15th of the month meant time for a Gifted Gorgeousness post...... 

Created by the lovely Jo over at Serendipitous Stitching, a way to show what kind and wonderful people crafting folks are with their lovely gifts they send out to others.

The very laid back rules are quite simple and can be found on Jo's sign up page at the top of her blog
 
I'm a little late this month with my post, not a lot of crafting activity happening, just a little gift knitting to share with you.
 
Second sock completed to make these a pair -

 
and a new pair started that will a gift for a friends birthday -

 
I have seen the gift of new life recently.   On an outing for a picnic in the country we spotted this mamma with her babies ...
 
 
Thanks for stopping by to see my GG post this month
 
Love and blessings

Gorgeous socks, Julie, does the yarn for your new pair self stripe? Sweet cygnets, too.

Julie said...

Yes, sock yarn is like magic!

Marlene jones said...

Love your socks, the colours are brilliant.

Jo said...

Those socks are fabulous, so colourful and the pattern looks lovely and squishy. I like the colours in your second pair of socks too, I'm so thankful for self striping or self patterning yarn, so much easier than having lots of different coloured balls of wool dangling from your needles. How cute are those cygnets following their mum, ahhhhh.

Swans and their cygnets look so lovely - they are such beautiful birds and when gliding along they look so serene Julie. I never tire of seeing them.
Hope all is well in your world.

Such pretty socks, Julie, and I always love photos of baby anything--people, animals, birds :) They all make me smile! Hope you are having a good week!

Penny said...

Pretty, cheerful socks! Babies are always sweet. : ) On a recent outing we were wondering why traffic was backed up. Turned out to be a little family of geese crossing the road.

Brigitte said...

Great socks, Julie. And what a nice idea to show a picture with the gift of new life that we see so manifold right now in nature.

Vicki Boster said...

Such beautiful socks Julie!! I could not knit a pair of socks if my life depended on it!! But I have the greatest admiration for those of you who have that talent!!

I've loved seeing the new creature babies this spring. We saw baby swans on our travels recently-- they were precious..
