I also got a wonderful surprise from my older brother this morning. He showed up on my porch a little while ago with a glider rocking chair for the baby room, complete with easily removable cushions. Now I don't have to steal the one from my parents' house ;)
For some reason I can't get this picture to rotate, but you get the idea. This is the first time I've ever made socks, and I had never worked short rows before. Again, the pattern was a little difficult to decipher at points, but once I got it figured out the socks turned out well also.
