In the groove

Ok, I am psyching myself up to get back in the blogging groove again. Here I have been home since Saturday and it is Wednesday, and I am FINALLY getting to the blog. Shame on me. Oh well, summer is like that, and I am definitely enjoying my summer.

I have a FO to share too. I finished the cream socks.

They have an easy diamond design on the front....

and up the back.

(Anyone else notice how hard it is to take pictures of your own feet without incredibly weird and wonky angles? Or is it just me?)

I have also been working on my stole. It is really growing. It feels weird to be making a stole of my own when EVERYONE else is knitting the Mystery Stole.

I am still debating how long to make it and whether or not to add fringe. Suggestions?

In case you are sick of all these boring/neutral projects, I did cast on some um, colorful socks today.

Now those should be fun and definitely not neutral lol.

I am also trying to add some color to my diet. I made a really good salsa last week. I'm telling you, this stuff is addicting. Once you start, you can't stop eating it. Yumm!

If anyone is interested, I can share the recipe. I am making it again this weekend. I can't wait!

The stole and the socks are beautiful!

Yep, Lisa, I would really like that recipe.

The socks are very cute and yes, it's nearly impossible to take good pictures of your own feet :)

I would make the stole at least as long as you are tall but I can't advise you about fringe; I don't like it much and almost never use it.
