A pair of sockies hasn't been seen here on the blog for a while, although actually I finished these right at the beginning of March, and then got mired down in the me-made March maelstrom and sort of forgot about them... I know, how could one forget abut twenty hours of knitting, hmmm? Definitely signs of old age creeping in...
These are knitted using some more of the Morris sock yarn Sam bought for me in Melbourne when he was there on his volleyball tour. I only have about three balls of this type of yarn left.
The weather is cooling off slightly, yay! enough that my feet were OK with being encased in socks for a photoshoot. Hehe, our weather girl announced cheerily last night that as we're expecting a high of only 24C (75F) we should all dress warmly for today, which made us laugh. Of course this is not really a cold day at all, but compared to the summer we've just had it does feel a bit on the freezing side, hilariously. Given that only two days ago we had 35C (95F). And joy, last night it rained, the first rain we've had in 67 days. I was pretty excited to put on a cardigan this morning. Oh, cardigans, how much I love thee, and have missed thee... and I thoroughly enjoyed walking the dog in the rain this morning. Truly, no kidding. Just a little bit of rain has brought a freshness to the air, an environmental sigh of relief if you will. You can almost hear the gardens cheering. Even Sienna got excited and sprung along with an extra zing in her step.
