It's the first day of school for my oldest two children.
It's been very calm and quiet around the house today!
We've had a great summer, full of lots of fun activities for the kids but I am really excited to get back to some things that I like to do in my spare time... like sewing!
This pair of socks got finished up this past week. I started them when the Olympics were on and only made one sock during that time. We loved watching the events, especially the swimming... but I wasn't so good at knitting and watching television at the same time. I had to take out stitches quite often on the first sock.
The pattern is very simple. My sister gave me a skein of this yarn as a birthday gift this year and I wanted to make it into something that I'd use often. Socks seemed fitting... even though I won't be able to wear them with shoes. They'll be perfect for wearing around the house this fall and winter.
