I just checked out last week’s Yarn Along post and realized I’ve made more progress on my Birds in Flight socks that I’d thought! Yay! I was going to write about how I’m trying to do too much, with all the exercising, gardening, crafting, oh, and blogging I’m compelled to do. But now I don’t have to, right? : )
These sample socks are taking longer to finish than I’d like, but mostly because I want to ship them off to Knit Picks already. I told them they’d have the socks this week and…um, well, you can see that they don’t. But they will next week. Definitely next week.
Here’s my sock among the geraniums, petunias and red salvia in one of the containers on my deck. I’ve been working hard to keep these flowers looking good (read: alive) through the heat wave, and it paid off. And it finally rained last night! The flowers still look good, despite the downpour, and I don’t know which accentuates the other more—do the flowers make the sock look better, or does the sock make the flowers look better?
I couldn’t decide which photo I liked best, so I chose four. Each one has a different focus, and that’s why I like them as a series.
I’m still reading Come to Grief when I settle down before bed, and I think I should dedicate more time to it. You know, in between everything else.
