Secret Valentine

When last we met, I was rushing off to start a pair of Koigu socks. I wound the yarn into balls, had needles in hand. I had already done the provisional cast on for toe up socks. I was ready. Then I remembered something I had to have done this week. Our department at work is doing a "Secret Valentine"(similar to Secret Santa). The person I picked is really, really into football, specifically the North Carolina Tar Heels. And she has been talking alot about High Tea lately. So, I came up with these:

coasters for Cathy

They are coasters in her team colors. I cast on 25 stitches and worked the Baby Genius Burp Cloth pattern from Mason Dixon Knitting. I am making her a basket of tea stuff (tea, mug, chocolates, etc)and this is the finishing touch.

My knitting self control came to an end, as soon as I was done with my coworker's gift, I started these:

Valentine's Day came early for me! My wonderful husband beat the rush and brought me flowers to my work today. He delivered them himself. He is a such a romantic! And I don't mind at all!

Flowers from Del

I brought them home and separated the basket into four vases.

Now I can enjoy them in more than one room!

Hope you have a Happy Valentine's Day too!

The flowers are gorgeous! I don't blame you for wanting to enjoy them on more than one room.... The Stargazer lilies are my favorite.

Your coworker will truly appreciate the handknit coasters. Great idea!

I love the colours of the socks. They looks so warm and toasty..
