High end sock day

Here's a pic of my Noro Kueryon socks. It was my first Noro project. I love the colors but it isnt' the softest yarn in the world. But they are very comfortable on.... So I guess they get a thumbs up after all...

These are my Olympic knitting socks, from the Socktopia Ravelry Group. I used Socks That Rock medium weight in Beryl.

And a close up shot of the ring pattern.....

Today I spent some time knitting after my ill-fated trip to the ER. Appherently I am allergic to Bees. Hmmm, who knew? But I have a nice start on a Minimalist Cardi now, in rose colored Rowan Cashsoft. Mmmmm it's so yummy to work with that I almost don't care that I was a human pincushion earlier.

the swimming lesson

As promised, here are some pictures of the munchkin's first swimming lesson....

She is having so much fun. And when Daddy comes with us, I get an workout in. That makes Mommy happy.
Tomorrow I'll post some sock pictures. Yes I have actually finished some knitting. Can you believe it?
