I would normally post this over at Fairhand (and I did post it there too) but this deserves special mention here too.

A fabulous textile ATC from the Project Spectrum ATC “Fire” swap in today’s post from Helen Darmara. I don’t have any photos yet, but you can see the ATC, and its pair, on Helen’s blog. I knew it as soon as I saw it, that knitted leaf had to be from the Vintage sock pattern, as valiantly demonstrated recently by the Yarn Harlot

I bow to both Stephanie and Helen, two women with far more patience than I can muster.

The Vintage connection amuses me, for Helen is of a similar vintage to I – and it is rare that happens to be so. Most of my swapping activities seem to be with partners who are deeply enthralled by Hello Kitty or My Little Pony…

Thank you, Helen, for a truly beautiful little work of art.
