All That Shines

It's too bad, but these pictures really don't do this yarn justice. They may begin to give you an idea, though, of the knitterly joy I have been experiencing these past two weeks. This yellow is absolute glory.

It's soft, which doesn't always impress me, but it feels like I'm knitting with butter or daffodil petals. I was knitting on the patio the other day, watching the kids play, and the color was like medicine. The whole world seems better when you can just soak in some sun and ignore your problems for a while. Of course, now that Henry has figured out how to climb the slide there will be much less relaxing and virtually no knitting from now on, but it was great while it lasted.

I finished the first sock last night but I'm going to save pictures until they are both complete. However, the complete satisfaction that the first sock gave me when I put it on is the very reason that people take the trouble to knit socks in the first place. Happy Day.

Pretty! One of these days maybe I'll take up knitting. Or, maybe I'll just sigh wistfully over all my friends' projects.

Thanks for your kind words on my blog today. I really appreciate them. Sometimes I wonder why I'm spending so much time writing blog posts, but I do enjoy helping people, so it's nice to know when someone is helped. :-)

Let me know if you have any more questions. Your questions make great posts!
