Anyway, we arrived to mild weather and sunshine and the days have warmed up nicely. It might be approaching 80 in the next couple of days! While DH has been organizing his work, I've been getting some knitting done. I'm working on two pairs of "vanilla" socks; one out of Wollmeise in the Saami colorway, and one out of Curious Creek worsted weight in a pretty blue for DH to use as bedsocks. (His feet get cold.)
So for all of you in the frozen north, west, and east, here's a couple of photos of my first completed sock. It's hanging from the lemon tree just outside out patio. Don't be too jealous, now!
I finished and mailed off a vest to afghans for Afghans right before we left. I guess that makes it the first FO for 2011. I used a pretty simple vest pattern and some worsted weight yarn scraps that I had. I think it came out pretty well.
And I got yarn in our mailbox! Just before we left home, I ordered some lovely self-striping yarn from String Theory Colorworks on etsy and had it shipped here. It's not a real home until you've had yarn in your mailbox, I always say. I'll show you the yarn tomorrow, as I haven't taken a photo yet and it's dark now.
