Hat's Off On

I'm not quite finished this hat,
but voodoo guy insisted on giving it a try on.

If it looks this good on his noggin,
I'm sure it will look most excellent on a human person.

Friday Foto

I was watching him,
and he was watching me.

On Wednesday, a friend and I went biking at the Orlando Wetlands.  It was the first time that I had ever biked on a dirt trail.  I usually ride on our paved Rails to Trails paths.

So, while the ride was quite challenging because of mucky areas, it was also well worth the workout. Donna and I saw probably 20 - 30 alligators and lots of migratory birds.

Winter in Florida,
it ain't so bad.

Happy Dancing

My stripey socks are done!

With just a little bit of finagling they striped almost perfectly the same.

How cool is that?

They feel wonderful.....the yarn feels soapy in the good way.  The stitch definition couldn't be better and I think plain old stockinette was the way to go on this pair.

That way you get to see that great stripeyness without the distortion of a pattern.

This yarn was a joy to knit up.

Am I happy with these?  You betcha!


YARN: Biscotte & Cie "Felix"   The yarn was a much loved gift from Lynn at Minding My Own Stitches.  Thank you, Lynn.

Cascade Heritage Silk for the ribbing, heels and toes.

COLORWAY:  Concur Pour Lui

PATTERN:  Just a simple stockinette sock with a slip-stitch flap heel.

I can hear you asking yourselves, "what's up now"?  Well, as Jane at Quiddity has said.

With Apologies to The Police

Every walk you take,
every poop you make,
I'll be watching you!

According to my neighbor, Bill, this goes on EVERY.SINGLE.MORNING!
