Finished the two up socks today. My DIL said to make then ankle length... so this are according to her specifications. My neighbor tried them on so that I could get a good pic on feet

And to verify our weather, the final photo is called Spring Time in Ohio

Temperatures today in the 60s, tomorrow's forecast calls for 70s.

I backed up, regrouped and read the lace chart knitting tutorial on KP tutorials. Now I think I know what was meant in the book. I think I'll be OK... I just had a moment of panic when I found the pattern I really LOVED, and looked at the chart and my little heart sank. I'm OK now.

My DIL loved her socks, and gave me a big hug! I've joined the Cookie A Sock Innovation KAL - and I've got more sock yarn coming next week for this. Just need someone to translate the book... looks like Greek to me.

Yay for finished socks! They look great, and I'm glad you've enjoyed making them.
I'm seriously fighting the urge to cast on another pair. I've got other projects that have to get done, but my sock yarn is calling out to me!

Thanks... I'm taking my DH for another dr appt this a.m. After that, I'm dropping these off at the DILs office for her. Hope she likes them.

We just planted a row of forsythia last year, and not all of the plants made it... but I think we only lost one. Ours started blooming a week or so ago, and is not in full bloom. My Pampas grass hasn't started greening up yet... I think the nights are still too cold. We are planning a garden, but haven't gotten anyone to plow it us yet - maybe today. My dad grew pole beans, when was a little girls, but I always preferred the half runners. I'm not sure what we are going to plan. I love arugula... I can't wait until all the local farmers markets open up with their wide array of fresh veggies. We have several really good ones in the area - all private farmers selling their produce.

Cute socks!

I love seeing my forsythia in bloom. That's how I know spring is here. Here in Georgia, I usually see the blooms in late February (gotta love a 9 month growing season). This year, it was mid-March before I saw the flowers. My Bermuda grass is starting to green, and we have an early vegetable garden planted with arugula, pole beans (I've never cooked pole beans before, much less planted them), and broccoli. My yard is covered with white flower petals from the Yoshimo (?) cherry tree, and the pink cotton flowers on the Kwanzan cherry tree are popping out of the buds. Spring in Georgia is beautiful.

Yes, spring in Ohio - very little green grass as yet, but flowering bushes and trees are in full bloom

No real pattern as such... used a Turkish cast on... used the Life Style Sock pattern I found on Ravelry which included a short row heel (which I really like) . My DIL told me when to stop the leg - said she wanted ankletes... then knit two rows and did a sewn cast off... I guess it is my own personal creation at this point.
