Like pretty much everyone else, when I come across a pattern online without a photograph, I skip it. So the Mystery Sock KAL was an interesting challenge. I found myself analyzing stitch patterns of some of those pictureless patterns. There were several I liked the looks of (including this one, this one, and this one), but since I was searching for a fairly simple sock, I settled on the Lacy Sock by jp. And since it was lace, I decided to dive into my birthday loot from Joan, choosing the solid color Wildfoote in Lilac. I really liked knitting with this wool, and have added it to my approved sock yarn list. As always, click on the picture for a larger version.
Sister Jane, Luida and I picked tomatoes and peppers yesterday. Ruth, Jane's next-door neighbor, has always been generous with her garden bounty, this year especially so. She told us about a month ago that she was done canning tomatoes, and to feel free to come pick some any time. I knew there weren't many days left (before freezing weather hit), so we filled several bags. I didn't bring a whole lot home, but Jane plans to pickle some peppers. Maybe even a peck.
