Long weekend

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.

You want random? You got it. Mostly knitting and gardening, with some home improvements, pets, baking, family, and the occasional bad joke thrown in for good measure. This blog is mine; it is a place where I can insist upon proper grammar or break my own rules and degrade into slang on a whim. Either way, it's still mine. I love the Internet.

    That IS a nifty gusset! I prefer a heel flap and that’s pretty much the only reason I don’t do toe-up…now I have to try that!!!
