I finished my first sock! Here it is in it’s fresh-off-the-needles unblocked zany glory. I started it on vacation. This was actually my second sock attempt (the first was coming out gianormous!).
I was getting worried about running out of yarn, so I switched out colors for the toe. That little ball is all I have left…I hope it’s enough.
Since I’d love to be more like Jane*, I thought I’d share some flowers to celebrate my sock moment…
I read in our local paper about a huge sunflower field planted in a nearby state park to attract birds. I took the boys there last week to check it out. It was so cool! Lots of bees, butterflies and big beautiful blossoms. Next year we will visit it earlier in July, as it was definitely “past-peak”…but amazing none the less!
*call me “jane” as in Jane Brocket of the famed yarnstorm blog. She has a way with yarn, color, beautiful flowers, and painted toenails!
