Wonderful handknit birthday gift.

I sew a bit, and dabble in other crafts (mostly ones involving glue, paint and making a mess) but never quite mastered the art of knitting. However I have a very creative and talented friend J who sews exquisitely complicated things and also knits exquisitely complicated things, sometimes as gifts. Yay!!!
(I think you can see where this is going...)

So I had a birthday recently and was lucky enough to get a squishy package from J containing these beautiful socks, they are soft and silky and many of the colours of the rainbow - are they not beautiful? I am not sure what the yarn is made from, something very soft and with a lovely sheen to it.
The colours are wonderful, they definitely include green, gold, orange, pink and purple, and I think I can see blue, copper and coral as well.

Thank you so much for such a beautiful birthday gift. I know how much works goes into these and I cherish them!

Lucky girl! I love to knit socks but always seem to give them away - my next pair are for me :)
