I am making good progress on the first Embossed Leaves socks. The 16-row repeat is easy to memorize and execute. Whether or not I can memorize is solely dependent on me being able to find the rhythm in the knitting and this one is excellent. I was going to give these to mom but decided to stay true to the original design and continue the pattern onto the foot. This means that these lovelies will grace my tootsies.
We went to the beach for Memorial Day weekend and got caught in black bike week. I forgot about this picture until I had to locate photos that were saved to the wrong folder. Check out the orange car. I'll gladly accept donations, both cash and yarn, from anyone who can't think of anything better to do with their money than this. You need a ladder to get into it!
I've almost completed the first bbq pillow and will need to make a trip back to the fabric store to finish this project. I was more or less guessing as far as the piping is concerned since I've never taken on a project like this and will need considerably more fabric. It's fun and I'm learning something new even though I've been sewing for decades.
