You know, I was warned about the addictive qualities of knitting socks - small quantites of yarn, endless patterns, colors that tempt the most stalwart of souls... you might say I was a non-believer.
And then I began (just one) last thanksgiving day.. in the attempt to have a display for our booth of the fabulous Dicentra Designs yarn. I was enchanted.
The yarn beckoned - I answered.
The siren call of socks had captured yet another intrepid knitter !
Amanda and Becky further encouraged this addiction by including me in the Bloomin' Feet sock swap..... and that was all she wrote folks! Not to worry though - the 'I've got to buy more yarn' contest is done, and the fever remains stable now. (translate that only 3 pairs of socks currently on my needles!)
The photo above which I present for your viewing delight is the fourth completed pair of socks... this time for my wonderful sweetie, K. (modeling one of his cozy toed socks) He selected this Lorna's Laces sock yarn while we were at the Madrona Fiber Arts Fair. As I wandered out into the garden this morning to see spring's newest offerings, I noticed these tiny primroses. I wonder if she was inspired by these colors ?
Our spring is arriving slowly this year - and while we await the flowers, we have been treated to a new neighbor. Perched in a tree, in the middle of this photo is an adult bald eagle. This tree is so close to our house that I could almost toss a stone and hit it. It appears that our wonderful friend has also brought his siblings. Aren't we fortunate to live amid such beauty.
