I started the naive socks almost a year ago... These socks traveled to San Antonio, Nashville and back home again and are still not finished. Now, I am committed these socks as my final project for this set of 4! (I started a pact with a knitting friend to finish 4 projects before starting a new one.) What a great project to finish up the first set. I love these socks... my heart melts for cables. The non-artzy side of me has a very hard time matching yarns with patterns. However, I think I nailed this one. The mimosa colorway by Three Irish Girls is heavenly with it's variegated colors and is perfect for the Naive Sock pattern.
The first sock was tough. The pattern is "dense" and not easy for me to memorize. With a 4 year old at home, I found it difficult to focus on these socks. However, the second sock, seems so much easier. I am hoping it will go much faster, otherwise I will not start a new project until 2015! Eeeek! Here is hope for a FO Friday of these socks! Wish me luck.
As for Mother's Day, my husband was very sweet and treated me like a princess. It was a beautiful day and we spent as much time as possible in the sun. My son, N, is still young and does not fully understand the purpose of Mother's Day. He was sweet and helped me plant the pretty flowers below and commented on how beautiful they were. I enjoyed their time spent on making me feel appreciated, loved and happy.
I joined Ginny and Tami's Amis today. Thanks for stopping by.
