Socks for Edouard


I had already begun this pair of socks, almost ready to turn the heel on the first sock when a friend asked me to knit a pair of socks for her husband – she’d pay me of course. As always, the problem is the cost of a pair of my socks – I simply won’t work for less than $1 an hour!

As I turned the heel I realized I could just make a longer foot and then I’d have socks for Edouard. They’ll go in the mail to him today. As a gift.



The coreopsis in the garden bed across from my front door is in full bloom – it blooms all summer. I love these tiny delicate yellow flowers. They make me smile!

The pansies beside them have done well this year, too.
