Finally, I have a finished object to show! You are probably not surprised to see that it is a pair of socks:
Yarn: Fleece Artist Nyoni in color Orchid
I thought I was making myself a pair of socks, but I wasn't. These annoy me somehow. It's not the color variation between the pair. I almost expect that from Fleece Artist. I think it's that the color is too close to the color of my skin. The socks make think of bacon. With a color name like orchid I thought they would be flowery spring time socks. Instead, I want a BLT when I see them.
It's just me though. Jim thinks they are lovely socks. He doesn't think of bacon when when he sees them and he and the boys think that bacon is nature's perfect food.
I've decided to put them away for a future gift. Mother's day is coming you know. Spring has already arrived in sounthern ontario. There are crocuses, ducks on the neighbour's pool and at work they had to send out a notice that the Canada geese are back so please drive careful in the parking lot!
