Knitting, flowers and dogs

Lynn finished her socks in Juliet from Yarn Love. One skein on 2.75mm needles with a basic sock pattern. Lynn might not get them back - Beth felt them and commented 'these are really soft'.  Melo was quite enamoured by them too.

It's a day of finished projects. Sarah texted me pictures of her shawl - I think she wants to give it to me.

Pattern: Assana (purchased on Ravelry)
Yarn: Hedgehog Sock (there should be another order from Hedgehog in the next week or so with 20 colours of sock)
Fun to knit and a timeless addition to your wardrobe, Assana provides a beautiful base for your favourite colour trio. Play two colours against each other in the stripes section: a gradient, speckled yarn, semi-solid hand dyes - anything goes here; then complement with a bold or subtle choice of colour for the zig-zag lace section. 
Worked side ways, on the bias, Assana includes both written and charted instructions for the lace section.

Austin came and put flowers in our planters this week. My mom hasn't been able to come see so here are some pictures for her. The teal planter with Pansies is going to move to the other side of the driveway next week.
Roko is enjoying the beautiful weather. Finally he said. We can play outside.
