Pattern: My own Plain old sock pattern.
Needles: #1 (2.25mm) dpns
As you probably already know, I like my socks to be convertible to anklets. These are, of course, convertible! Maybe I just like the word convertible.

When I was with my granddaughter last month, we went to a ceramics shop and she made a lovely strawberry dish for her mom. I made a mug to rival the galaxies. Well, maybe not.
They had to be fired and would not be ready before I left for home, so I told her not to send it but to keep it and use it and always remember that day.
Yesterday a box arrived. It was a small box, and I thought it was the mug that she must have found way too 'mugly.'
But it was this exquisite hand crafted leather and silver belt that completes my summer linen!
My dear daughter-in-law had seen me oohing and aahing over this belt at Wharf Hill, a lovely shop in Smithfield. I had decided that it was definitely me but I balked at the price. I was so pleased to get it. I have a most thoughtful and generous family! Thank you!
Wharf Hill also has a number of select antiques--one of which was an old, well-worn yarn swift. But I already have one of those and am well-wearing it.
