We are back from a week in Portugal. The house we stayed in was great, although it had the worst bed I have ever slept in! We had a great pool, the beach was just a short drive away, and I did quite a bit of knitting. I even read a book, which I haven't done in ages. I read The Time Travellers Wife, by Audrey Niffenegger. What a great book. Anyway, on to the knitting. Here is the sock on day one:
and here is the finished product a few days later:
I am really not sure about this colourway. It seems to be a popular one on blogs, and in the ball it looks like a fun pink and green. In the end, it seems a bit Christmas-like. I have started the next one, but not very inclined to finish it. Any comments would be greatly appreciated as I am picking colors for the shop, and not sure if I should get this one. I would say that the photo here is quite accurate.
I love the beach in the Algarve, this year the waves were pretty small except on the last day. We spent alot of time building sand castles.
and just relaxing
A few more days and back to work!
