Hawks & Socks
Yesterday, I was visiting my parents’ house for the afternoon. While I was there, a GIANT bird came and perched on a rock in the yard. He was a red-tailed hawk (discerned after a look through several bird books). He was very handsome, sitting there braving the cold, feathers ruffling in the wind. I got many good photos of him. Here are a few:
On to the socks. I have been knitting socks this winter. As those of you who know me know, this is really just about ALL I ever knit. I know how to knit other things, I just like socks. Socks are small, not too difficult, and quick. In other words – instant gratification! It’s amazing how quickly they shape up. They start out as just a short row of loops, become a small cuff, and then before you know it, there is a finished sock in your hands!
The first pair below was a little more time consuming, because there was color changing involved. I sent this pair off in the mail today to my friend Laurie. The second pair is the pair I finished today. I loved that this yarn did its own striping with the variegation. I made these to fit me. I have made MANY pairs of socks, but only kept a few. I figured it was my turn.
I may try knitting something else next…other than socks, that is.
Thanks for reading. Enjoy your day!
