A rosy glow for Wednesday

My WIP Wednesday project is another pair of socks; I started these last week when I flew to Colorado for a conference. Socks are great airplane projects! I got all the way to the heel flaps during my trip, and then set them aside for a few days. I picked them back up yesterday and finished the heel turns. (as an aside, learning to knit backwards has made a huge difference in the durability of my heel flaps / turns — I purl much looser than I knit, but knitting backwards maintains my tension better and I get a sturdier fabric)

I didn’t bother trying to match up the stripes. Pink is not my usual color choice, but they go well with this morning’s gorgeous sunrise.

About wonkydonkey

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.
