Yarns and Yards



In answer to a question I received in the comments about Tempted yarns, I love the way they work up. They knit up so soft that I want to wear them all the time. (Can I wear wool socks in the summer in Oklahoma? I don't think so.) This is the first Tempted yarn I bought in honor of OU. I love these socks. They are knit in a k2p2 ribbing all over. My favorite generic pattern.

In other news, my big guy and my son worked in the back yard all day yesterday while I was slaving away on the computer at work. They hauled and raked mulch and gravel. Now I *have* to go pick out some ferns and flowers to put back there.

There were two pairs of cardinals at the bird feeder this morning. Also a couple of hummingbirds and a few pretty little yellow birds at the thistle feeder. The squirrel wasn't there this morning, but he will be back when he sees that the corn has been replenished. I love to watch them, and the dogs are entertained by them.

It's a golfing day for the big guy and me, although the wind is supposed to be strong, getting worse as the day goes by. But I need the exercise. It is more fun golfing than walking.

Hi Marion,
Thought I'd answer a question you posted on my blog over here in your blog. You wanted to know what kind of camera I have? It's a Sony Cybershot DSC-H3. My Sweet Hubby gave it to me for Christmas. I absolutely LOVE it!

Your red and white sock is beautiful.

Take care,
