Well here are a few newbies to take away the blues of winter. Thinking my life is quite boring and then realizing what I am able to do while watching the disasters in Japan , China, and other countries ,I am glad I live where I am . My candle is lit and my prayers go out often to all in need. Here Leslie is for you a nice pair of purple thrum socks and a pair of green fingerless gloves. Oh ! by the way that is the last of your forest green shade. Also the purple was 2 skeins left from your original shade when I first started knitting for you. For me a nice pair of grey thrum slippers for my shop on Etsy also a new pair of socks for me from bamboo. The wool is slippery to work with but nice and soft for the feet.
