Felted house socks for Mom

This pair of socks knit up really quick! I cast on 40 stitches with US sz 11 needles and knit a basic sock. You decrease for the toe 'after' you achieve the length of your foot [or my mom's, in this case].
I used the Reynold's Lopi I had left over from my son's Icelandic Sweater.
Mom said they are the right height and loves them!

My tatted Suncatcher

....can be found here. Scroll down and search for Feb 2006. The FREE patterns date back to 2005.
This looked better BEFORE I wet and blocked it.....but here it is. This is the first time I ever used 2 shuttles and I am a self-taught tatter. LOL. Say THAT fast a few times!
So, my wonderful followers [gosh, you all make my day!] and fellow tatters know that I am STILL learning. I can only get better. :)
I signed up for the newsletter and they are wonderful! Each month you will get an email from Nancy Tracy with a pattern to tat. What's nice about her patterns, is if you are stumped --- you can e-mail her for help!

Crochet eye candy

I bought this because of the delicate crochet detail. The thread is so thin and the pattern is so interesting.
Anyone else ever see something like this?
Is this a doily or handkerchief?
