Guess what? I received my very very first hand knitted gift the other day. A pair of socks! And it is my very very first pair of hand knitted socks. Because, you see, after knitting socks for my husband's size 13 feet on US zero needles, I was less than motivated to knit any for myself. But now my feet feel loved. And really, I think they feel much better because someone special gave them to me. :) Aren't they beautiful?!
*sigh* Thank you, oh beneficent sock knitter!
