Ta Da!

I love these socks.  I finished them last night and took pictures this morning.  The cashmere in the Wanderlust yarn makes them soooo soft and squishy.  They feel so good on my feet.  I love the pattern, the little clouds that appear on the leg (it's also nice to be able to mindlessly knit the foot) and the chart is easy to memorize.  As others had mentioned on ravelry, they are quite snug getting over the heel.  I went up to a size 3 needle and they are still a bit tight, but wearable and quite comfortable once on.

Now, for the bad news.  All had been completed in the sunroom, blinds hung (all 13 of them!), furniture moved in and arranged, kids tvs/video games set up, and suddenly, the air conditioning wall unit began to drip.  Drip, drip, drip!  We quickly moved the tvs/video games and dried the shelf.  The air conditioning guy is coming this morning.  Hopefully, this little hiccup will be resolved quickly and easily.  But, if that's my only complaint, it's a good day!

Today, I'm knitting as much as I can.  We have baseball late tonight, with the younger son's team playing.  Then more knitting this weekend.  Next week is spring break for the kids, so that makes life much less hectic.


  1. Aren't socks the absolute best to knit? I've definitely found my passion in them. Yours turned out lovely.
