With our idyllic summer of 2007 in Maine winding down to a precious few days, I visited my knitting buddy Joy in Freeport and gave her a pair of what I call "Happy Sox" (www.mollyhutchins.com of Boothbay Harbor, Maine). They're made in Vermont of cotton and nylon and always bring lots of comments. Joy immediately put her new pair on and here we are modeling them.
Here, too, are my latest creations, my Sea Urchin Bracelets. They're actually macrame (remember that from the 70's? with scores of vintage beads (lots of leaves and flowers) and each has some very special handmade lampworked (torch fired) beads, too. The closure on one is a large ceramic bead and the other is a button I purchased last year in Galway, Ireland. They look like you're wearing this multi-faceted ruffle on your wrist. Lots of fun.
