Not only has Ginger been working on my socks, she is using them for a pillow. R caught this picture the other day of a totally relaxed cat. Her head is cradled right between needles. How she did that, I'll never know!
Aha! Caught in the act, but looking quite innocent!
I tried something different with this pair of socks. I decided to reinforce the heels. Someone, who will remain unnamed - MOM - goes through the heels of her socks like, well, I don't know what. I am experimenting with different reinforcing methods. She suggested kevlar, but I don't know if they sell that in yarn form..... I like the way the heels looks different with the reinforcement yarn in them.
Here they are with a very inaccurate depiction of their color. The skeins have the same dyelot and in this picture they look the same. However, in person - nope. The sock on the left is darker. I used the yarn I got for Easter - Plymouth Yarn Co. Happy Feet. I liked the yarn just fine and the socks are very, very comfortable. I thought it was odd how the pattern worked up different in each sock. Oh well. I know it doesn't sound like it, but I really do like them.
Isn't my new little lamb adorable? This came from the Apple Barn in Gatlinburg. He just had to come home and live with all the other little sheep in my collection!
This also is from Gatlinburg and had to come join my sock yarn collection. Sheepy goodness from the Smoky Mountain Spinnery. It's definitely medieval blue. I took lots of pictures, but this one is probably the closest. It's kettle dyed so there are variations in the blue. I've got to find a special pattern for this yarn!
Okay, you're all caught up now. Keep praying for RLs Dad. His appointment is the 15th and we are all very anxious and prayerful for good news.
