Sock pool

What do you think a white bowl has to do with knitting??

It's my blocking chamber!!! It was a scorcher of a weekend and a perfect time to block the Faulty Dyer Monkey socks!

Much knitting was achieved while watching Battlestar Galactica.

Even more fun, was hanging out with friends over frozen lemonade and iced tea!

Yep. Old friends and new...Jen, Carrie and Christy and I had the pleasure of hooking up on Sunday while Carrie was in town visiting. We shopped, knit, laughed, and had a grand time! Ladies, I'm looking forward to a redo!!

And the socks...how did they turn out?!
Picot perfect!

Wow, your pictures are beautiful. The socks are too! It was so much fun hanging out with you too ladies this weekend. I would love to do it again soon. I am sure I will have lots of questions now that I am on my own. I still can't get over how quickly you can knit! Take care and have a great week!

Sock Pool! Not pooling sock!

The bubbly water beads remind me of winter's frost and leave me yearning for fall to get here!
