The Good Ship Trekking

This is the sky I saw on the way to work this morning. Why is it that when I’m out and about with my camera, with the sole purpose of taking a lovely sky shot for Saturday Sky, I usually find nothing of any interest at all - but when I’m driving along with places to be and deadlines and such, I see stuff going on up above that makes my stop and get my camera out. It could have something to do with the fact that I tend to sleep in on the weekends and miss the early morning show in the sky. Then again, it could be nothing more than cosmic irony. Hmmm…

trek boatThis sky actually said more to me than just “oooo… how pretty”. It‘s actually a lovely posting companion to the sock that I was working on last night. Do you see the similarity in the colors too? This is for hubbo and, as I’ve mentioned before, his feet are huge. Ginormous even! I’m enjoying the yarn and there is seemingly no end to the enjoyment I get out of knitting socks but OMG – these are killing me. They just seem to go on forever. Thankfully, he likes his socks low so I’m just going to continue on in pattern up the leg ‘till it makes me happy and then call it a day before I lose my will to knit its mate.

Concentrating on the sock for the night was a good thing because I needed a diversion from by Seraphim angst. This morning I had a welcome e-mail from the dyer. She’s going to see if she can work out some yarn for me. I am more relieved than you can possibly imagine. I really can’t wait to wrap this shawl around my shoulders.

Oh what good news!! Any thing close will work well. I hope to start my Seraphim this weekend! The sock looks good.

What a beautiful sky! I am never outside early enough to catch a sunrise like that!

That sky shot is simply gorgeous! Men's socks seem to take FOREVER to knit! I'm totally swearing off men's socks after the pair I'm working on right now until at least next year.
