This was Scout’s first trip to the zoo. She wasn’t too aware of what was going on, but she was definitely interested in those big furry things that were swimming under the faucets of water. Here she is with Daddy taking a peek at what was down in the pool:
On the way to, and from, the zoo I had a chance to work a few rows of sock #2 for the Pink Granite socks. I got about 12 rows done in the car, (meaning traffic was very light on a Friday on the 5). I worked on the rest of the sock last night and, successfully, finished while watching an episode of, “Murder, She Wrote”.
Close up of the lace pattern on the foot:
I used the Easy Toe and Short Row Heel pattern, like always. (I’m in my comfort zone). And I knit the 4 row Little Arrowhead pattern from Charlene Schurch’s, “More Sensational Knitted Socks”. I used US 2’s for the sock and US 1’s for the 2×2 ribbing. I really like these socks. Lacy and feminine without being too frilly. And they are uber comfy!
I updated my Etsy shop with a couple more sock stitch marker sets, including these pretty little pink butterflies:
And now? Well, my neighbors moved a day earlier than expected, though the Charlottes Web was nowhere near being done. So I’ll be working on that, and Wicked. I might start another pair of socks, and I might not. I have to figure out what socks I will knit for my Sock It To Me Pal. And since I joined the Hogwarts Sock Swap, Round 2, I will need to get on the ball for that as well.
I suppose you’ll see the next I post!
