THE VILULA TEA GARDEN was a little tea room in my memories...ladies wearing white gloves and pretty hats; soft and mended old linens on the tables; and heirloom roses in crystal vases....lovely.

I love knitting purses, scarves, and shawls, but as a hot-natured person, I never wanted to make socks...until I saw this yarn. It has a kind of Fair-Isle striping as you knit... If I ever finsh them I will show you. It even has aloe-vera in the yarn for your feetsies! Don't scoff, I am going to make them with a split between the toe to wear them with my flip-flops, yes, my FLIP-FLOPS!!! Let me know what you think, peoples!
