  1. Hi Emily,
    I love your site. Please tell me the colorway for the socks you began for "Mother's Day Cast on." It says Teal Tease, however it doesn't seem as purple as Teal Tease. Thank you in advance Fay


Thank you so much for your comment! I try to leave comment love back on your blog as well. All feedback is welcome, I want to improve as an artist. Blessings to you!
