Heaven.... down and dirty

Pure heaven.............. I'm not going home and you can't make me!

In between exploring and enjoying (and eating, can you say green chili stew??)--- there is plenty of relaxing and filling up the tanks of spirit and soul. That means that some knitting happens--

A pair of socks were cast on a few days back and I'm now approaching toe shaping, that is to say that I'm much further along than this photo. Turning the heel was positively zen factoring in the view and the margarita!

They are mindless and happy down and dirty socks. Self striping yarn from a big box store calling to mind local turquoise. No patterning no lacy bits, no cable rows no nothin'! Just easy functional socks knit (sorry Melissa) on dpn's. Two's at that making for ribbing that might well have been a better idea on 1's. Regardless they will serve to add to the sock drawer and work quite nicely.

I know you want to see the art piece the sock in early progress is photographed in front of:

One of the blessings of this casita away from home are the fabulous artsy touches found everywhere, the selection above as only one example. It is an old drawer, glammed out at every turn. Love it!

Another day calls.......
