Be free and fly away!

My mom used to have a really ugly keychain attached to her car keys (or at least I thought so). Now that problem is solved! Since she's very fond of birds, I made her this tiny, stuffed yellow bird keychain as a birthday gift. It's sweet (if I may say so myself), light as a feather and, since it's soft, it won't make any noice while driving. Perfect for teh purpose!

For someone in love

These socks were made for my best friend and her fiancé after they got engaged last summer. On top of all they nowadays also live in a very old house where the floors are quite cold during the winter. So at the same time, this was kind of a house warming gift. Or foot warming gift :)

Pattern: Neulotut miehen palmikkosukat by Novita (also in the magazine Novita syksy 2010)
Yarn: Gjestal Janne and Novita 7 Veljestä
Needles: 3 mm

Actually only the green socks are made following the pattern, but I used the same cabled pattern for the violet socks too, just to make them a real sock-couple. I've also always thought that violet and green look great together. Almost like made for each other. And people who's in love definitely also need socks that are in love! <3
