Here she is on her soft white towels. I used clear colourless beads to mimic frost.
This is a brilliant and simple knit with a great motif. I hope to wear it this Christmas to brighten up my musician black outfit.

I worked Sunday night. I didn't take a break, but there were quiet times between rounds and treatments, so I was satisfied. I knit on the sock and other nurses brought out their knitting.
