We spent Memorial Day Weekend out-of-town, soaking up some serious nature and leisure time. There were ants, bats, and birds galore! With a complete lack of TV and only sporadic cell coverage, the main activity was to do whatever you wanted, even if that was nothing at all. I worked on the Frankensocks while sitting on the deck by the river. Can’t get much more relaxing than that!
(note the nifty gusset there at the heel)
In fact, I finished them. There are a few dozen ends to weave in, thanks to all those scraps, but they are fully knit. I will take a picture of them in their completeness later.
Not to be caught empty needled, I was prepared with a lovely skein of self-striping sock yarn that I wound and then cast on some new socks with.
I also spent a fair amount of time outside, playing with my new camera. I don’t understand how to use it yet, but I took a lot of photos. Most turned out alright, a few were pretty good, and several were downright awful… Clearly, I need more practice. Regardless, it was gorgeous and we did a bit of tromping through the woods to break up all that relaxing.
