Socks in Progress
I don't often do that... working on two different socks. One is for a contest - the OlympicSox2008, the other is just for fun.
The second photo is a closer look at the lighter blue sock - the cable is not really a cable, and with a little bit of imagination, you can see the movement that swimmers could make in the water. LOL!
At home, not much has changed. The kids are still free, as in September school starts, the weather is windy... apples are dropping out of the tree due to the wind, and we carefully search for bad spots and pick out the good ones for ourselves.
Since Saturday I am the proud owner of a spinning wheel - and I do like to work with it. Alexa and Jouke learned how to work with the spindle. For the rest, the kids are watching the Olympics a lot, as the weather is not allowing them to be outdoors a lot. Summer in our country lasted less than a week... but in a way I don't regret it.
