For the non-shepherds among you...

...I present (drumroll, please) a sock! (Don't be picky. It's ALMOST a sock!) And it fits! It really fits! The amount of sock between heel and instep was really alarming me, because there is no way my little boy's foot is that big. But when I had him try it on, I was shocked - and pleased!On to the toe! On to the second sock! (Some of you are thinking I have totally cracked my gourd. Some of you understand. :-)

For those of you who don't understand the sheep thing OR the sock thing, I'll include a few flower shots. I got bored taking plain ol' posie portraits, so these are a little different; some taken here and some taken at Schreiner's Iris Gardens, where we took our annual pilgrimage last Saturday.
We are going horse camping this weekend, so I hope to get in lots of driving-time knitting and campfire knititng. I'll let you know how much progress I make when I get back!

That's it for now from . . .

You INSPIRE me, Michelle!
One of these days, I WILL knit a pair of socks!

Heck, I'd be happy if I could just knit ONE sock....

Have a wonderful weekend. I always dreamed of spending a weekend (or longer) "horse-camping". Never quite made it. :-(

P.S. are you using DPNs or circs for your socks???
