special day

January 24 is friend S's birthday. I have developed the habit of leaving a little something on her front porch to greet her when she comes out in the morning of that special day. This year, it was this:


I had a skein of Noro Silk Garden Sock in all her favorite colors, and I'd been wanting to try this pattern. The perfect oppportunity.  
I wish now I'd used a needle one size bigger -- but then I would have run out of yarn.
Here is a better view of the pattern, stretched out for blocking: 

It was a lot of fun, and I am going to make it again, in a thinner yarn, so the lace shows to better advantage.

(The pattern is Riverrun by Erin McNellis.)
