I was knitting the first official pattern of Sock Madness and realized it was not working for me.
It was interesting to learn how to make the beaded blackberry.
|Time to rip!|
I was not happy with the fit when I tried it on. Also, I did not think that the gray would last for both socks, even with gold toes and heels. So I ripped it out! My sweetie was appalled. So close to finishing a sock. But if I am not happy with it, it would not get finished.
One of our mutual friends also will tuck in a little something in the packages. This UFO looks like a One Block Wonder. The iris print is lovely. Some of the rows have been sewn and some of the blocks are pinned. It will be a puzzle to line it up (I think). I decided to wait and leave it stacked as it came to me. So if there is a logical order, I will be able to lay it out easily. When I have some time to play with it.
|Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument|
Last weekend my Brother-in-law came for a visit. We drove up Johnson Canyon Road. Which used to be the border of the Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument. Lovely rock formation along the canyon. I am not sure if this is still in the monument or not since the borders of GSENM has been gutted.
