Some Early-Spring Sunshine
...and a sunny pair of socks, too.
I finshed these a week or so ago, but haven't had a chance to post a picture. They're a little looser than I'd like (my fault for adding too much ease to the pattern), but I love them.
The yarn is Opal Prisma and the pattern is unpublished. I knit the socks on size 0 or 1 needles, can't remember which.
I'm using the leftover yarn to knit a pair of socks for little Thor(ina). They're nearly finished and I should have a pic up soon.

We had a lovely weekend: dinner with friends Friday evening, made a road trip Saturday to visit a friend who'd had surgery (he's doing just fine, thanks), had a visit from my Canadian brother and his girlfriend Saturday night, and played in a euchre tournament Sunday. I've included a Wikipedia link for those of you who have never heard of the game. It's a staple in this part of the world, but Rich and I had to teach a lot of non-midwesterners how to play when we were newlyweds living in North Carolina.
Going off to finish my baby sockies now.

How is Uncle Greg? How are Nick and Nece and the baby? Miss you and those socks are beautiful and I think they may be my favorite ones that you have posted pictures of. How is the new job? Love ya.

Hi Sarah,
Uncle Greg is, well, Uncle Greg, LOL! We had a nice visit.

Nick and Nici are just fine, and the baby is, as well.

The job is going ok, but I still have an awful lot to learn, and I hope I can learn it before they get fed up and fire me.

Love you, too. Email me and let me know what's going on with you.
