Back Home in the Rain ~and a Tiny Bit of Sun

We have been gone and with no way of posting, but now we are back home. I finally finished a pair of embroidered socks!  It was last year's mystery sock from the Knitters Brewing Company.

It's a fairly complex pattern, so I didn't want to overdo it with so much embroidery that you couldn't see the cabling.



 I also finished a scarf and a pair of booties.  Right now I'm trying to finish this year's KBC mystery sock which is based on crazy quilting. Can you imagine that?



Have a good week!  I'll be back with some pictures from our Florida trip.

Those socks are so beautiful, I'd have to save them for the most special occasions. Maybe you're getting so much done, because you don't have access to the computer.

Oh my gosh those are the cutest socks I've ever seen!! You are amazing! I really have to try that. And the baby booties are precious. I would have to knit two pairs--one for the baby and one to keep and pet.

The pictures of Arizona are wonderful. I can't wait to see more. I may have told you that my husband Bill and I grew up in Yuma, Arizona. It is a whole different way of life!
