Blue Socks

blue socksFinished these the other day. I have to say I love working with that Opal – Sweet ‘n Spicy yarn – the resulting pattern is such a nice one. This pair is ladies size 7 12/ – 8. They are in my “to give away” pile – I have lots of blue socks – not tempted to keep these.

I do have to admit, however, this yellow pair made it from the give-away pile to my sock drawer last week, when I decided they matched the outfit I decided to wear that day!

Notice the juxtaposition of the orchid in my livingroom and the snow outside! That’s winter in Canada for you.

I have four Phaels in bloom and I was taking pictures this morning when I discovered this one – with the snow in the backrgound. Mid-February – it won’t be long before the snow begins to disappear and then soon there will be flowers in my outdoor deck garden again.
