I love these socks! These have to be the favorite socks that I have made to date. I love the colorway, the pattern, and the fit. I mean all my socks have fit, but these fit
. They are just wonderful all around. (You can click on the picture for a bigger view. They really are nice socks!)
Specs: Waterfall Rib pattern from Sensational Knitted Socks on size 0s in Trekking color 106.
I do love patterns, but stockinette is such a wonderful break. Look how much I got done on my new socks for Project Spectrum
and Summer of Socks
I worked on them while watching Quigley Down Under which was on TV last night. I love westerns (okay, technically it's set in the Australian Outback, but it's a western), I love Tom Selleck, and I love Alan Rickman. Alan Rickman plays the typical nasty character that he does so well. (Isn't he the perfect Snape?) And well, would I be dating myself too much if I said I grew up watching Magnum, P.I.?
Shortly after Quigley went off, we had a heck of a thunderstorm. The lightening was like a strobe light all night, bad thunder and pretty scary wind. It got so bad around 10:30 that I got the kids out of bed and we sat in front of the basement door for about half an hour, ready to go down if something happened. My tomato plants took a beating, the cages were ripped out of the ground, but I think we only lost a couple of branches and not the whole plants. Our neighbor, however, lost a tree.
We lost a tree in the very same spot in our yard a couple of years ago in a similar wind storm. It's really too bad seeing as how this is a fairly new subdivision with few enough big trees as it is. It was a nice tree and a pretty scary storm. We're supposed to have more storms today. Oh, joy.
