Fall and Spring meet!!

It's been cold here, and the leaves have turned pretty colors and are falling from the trees. But today, it's actually made it to 70 degrees! I'm certainly not going to complain about the mild weather. It feels like there's a bit of Spring in the Fall! Which brings me to my two current favorite sock yarns, dyed by the talented Scout.

On the left, most definitely Fall, is Socktoberfest. It arrived the other day, and was a prize from Blogger Bingo!! I was so thrilled and surprised to find out I had won, and was so excited to learn that my prize is the very Scout yarn I had been pining for.

And there on the right, just screaming Spring, is the start of my Daisy sock!! I love the way the yarn pooled to create a white spiral down the leg. The inspiration pictures I had sent to Scout were of daisies with rays of sunlight shining down on them. So how cool is it that my sock has a "ray of light" shining down the leg? I know, I'm so goofy. The foot is continuing to stripe like the heel flap, and although it is making for an unusual sock, I really love it.

Hurrah for some Spring during the Fall!!

I love the socks - they are great! sorry commenting has been a bit sparse at the moment - its a madhouse at the moment - should be normal by Sunday - Saturday night your time. Good for you for sleeping in the house on your own - that is a big milestone! I still don't sleep when DH is awayeven with the kids to help me feel settled. its a big thing - I hope you get better at it than I ever was
