what a lovely day!

The sky is blue, with just a few rather decorative white clouds to add interest.  David is working on his rake and the old John Deere
and his dad is raking with the Brown.  I am enjoying the day, and knitting new woolen socks for the cold weather to come.  All is well with the least our little corner of it.

Happy Mother's Day to Itsy Bitsy, shown here with her brand new daughter!
On the knitting front, sock #2 of the pair shown yesterday is nearly to the heel flap and will probably be finished either this evening or tomorrow morning
After a dreary morning and rainy noontime, we now are being treated to bright, warm sunshine!

Dreary Rainy Day!
Rather uninspiring out today, so watched a few movies on DVD ["Up Periscope" and "Operation Pacific], puttered around the house a bit, and just finished a double batch of fudge--to which I added a liberal dose of shredded coconut.
of course, to keep my hands busy while watching the movies, I worked on a pair of socks

after a long hiatus, hard to decide what to catch up with first.  lots and lots of precious new baby bovines, lots of knitting completed-mainly baby blankets for gifts, socks, always lots and lots of socks, and gingham potholders from my favorite pattern [from Frugalhaus] for my best friend from high school [yes, even  56 yrs  after we graduated, we're still buddies.

I just love how these seamless raglan pullovers by Mary Thomas knit up!  I love seamless knitting anyhow, and these are, well, as nearly "mindless knitting" as plain socks!  This yarn just came yesterday afternoon, and already the yoke is half done!
