Pick A Pear



Well I didn't actually pick them, I chose them and aren't they gorgeous? I am feeling a pang for the fact that the fruits of summer are winding down. The fruits of my labour however are just getting started. Check out my finished left sock. We love a good sock puppet in our house. It is the left sock because it doesn't have a technically perfect heel but after restarting so many times there was no way I was going to do it again. Now to cast on for the right sock—I am aiming for perfection. Wish me luck! Oh and please excuse the lint on the floor— I'll will try for perfection in house keeping, ah, later...

It's much better than one of my early sock efforts. I was so excited after turning the heel that I went straight to the toe decreases and did not knit the foot! It made for an excellent dinosaur puppet.

I love sugar pears!!
The sock looks great. I like the puppet shot.
Perfect is totally over rated and I am certain it causes grumpitude.

Hey--a first sock, and it even looks like a sock! Congratulations! Don't worry too much about perfection--I mean, the only one who will see it is the inside of your shoe, you know? (This may be why my love affair with knitting socks was a bit short-lived.)

The fruit is so gorgeous!

I think pears are the most aesthetically pleasing of all the fruits. :)

Congratulations! Isn't that the best feeling?? Back to your turning your first heel comment: I woke my husband up to tell him about turning my first heel. Needless to say he wasn't overly impressed. . .
