I get most of this except the enclosing part - anyone have a clue - I tried finding a video… not luck yet.

Socks for Mom

I just finished this pair of socks for my mother. I like the way they turned out using the Evil Genius method again. The yarn is a superwash Merino/nylon blend that softens up quite nicely when washed and blocked. Mom's toes have a mind of their own and didn't grow especially straight, with two on each foot crossing over another. She never has to cross her fingers for luck, her toes have done that for her. She also has a very large big toe bone (cuneiform bone for those of you who enjoy anatomy) also known and a bunion.

Now a blanket LOL

My silk yarn arrived yesterday in the mail. I was a bit skeptical as the pic on ebay wasn't all that clear but the price I paid was great considering how much I would pay for 100% silk at the local yarn store.
Although its a 2 ply, its not a lace weight. Kinda in-between which I am happy about. It would be too thick for a night shirt.
