The colors in the yarn were too beautiful to hide with a pattern. They reminded me of Monet's paintings - so I am naming them after him.
Here are my Monet socks:
Pattern - Basic sock with 2 x 2 ribbing at cuff.
Yarn - Ruby Sapphire - MELINDA Handpainted Treadsoft Superwash Sock yarn
Needles - US 1 DPNs
Don't you think the colors are like a Monet painting?
Also - for those of you that asked - here is a pic of the 3 generations T-shirts we made:
We didn't actually put them on - but you get the idea!
Spring continues to bloom at my home and at work. I am starting to get back into my gardening mode. I spent some time yesterday working in the garden and planted a few things. I need to plant some flowers in a new bed that I prepared last fall. It's definitely hard work - but it's so rewarding to see the flowers coming to life!
I also spent about a half hour pulling up dandilions - ug! They never stop!!
But - having the beauty of flowers around me is something I cherish. I'm lucky to also have this beauty around me at work. I work in a biulding owned by the US Dept of Agriculture and let me tell you - the grounds are gorgeous. There are flowers everywhere! Right now the tuplips are in full bloom....
