Knitting and Flowers
I have spent most of this last vacation knitting, reading, hiking, and eating. What a great way to get ready for a long school year. I finished knitting my Gull Wings Socks and have moved on to some self-striping ones. I bought the yarn in Nebraska, and I'm not that in love with the color. I used the basic pattern from the lacey mock cable sock pattern posted on the Island of Misfit Patterns Website, and instead of the "lace" I knit a mock cable. Last year when we went to the snow, Kai didn't have any wool socks, so I think these are for him. They're a little wild, but he won't mind.
The nice thing about being at my parents' house is that their backyard is like a park, so when you're not up to a big hike, you can stroll through their garden.
