Knitting does still happen here...






Yes, there has actually been knitting!! Despite a really busy and beautiful weekend, I managed to finish a pair of socks and two single socks - yippee!! I am not sure about the pair, even though the yarn looked so good together in the picture, I am not sure that I love it in real life. I do love the way it feels on my feet. However, I did make the socks for hiking, so no one except me and mr.sunneshine (when he does the laundry) will ever see the colors together.

The singles socks are my first Vinnland, which you can see from the not being work photo - looks okay. But then when I put it on, I loved it!! And a few highlighter strokes to the pattern, and all the sudden it wasn't so hard. I should have the next one done by next weekend! The other single sock is what I am calling the James Bond sock - since most of it was done while we watched Casino Royale. It is just a twisted rib pattern on a basic sock. I had never done pattern down the foot of a sock, so I thought I'd try it. Its really hard to see from the photo, but I love the way it looks with the dark yarn. It is a little thick, but when I am cruising around in my Birkenstock clogs, it will look great!! (Yeah, I know they are dorky and clunky, but after standing on my feet all day, they feel so good!!!)

Finally, I got a package from Scout on Friday and this lovely was part of it. I first saw this magnet on Enchanted Daffodils blog. It was too cute, I had to order one. I am sure it will get stolen, but until then, I am really enjoying it!!
