Later in the afternoon I took my knitting outside with a glass of wine. As I knitted, I noticed that the wine was the same color as one of my yarns. I got this yarns earlier this week, they are wool and alpaca/wool blends that are locally produced. I love this yarn. I first got some a couple months ago that I've been crocheting a granny squares afghan, but in some other colors. It is such a bouncy wool, and I've been eager to knit something with it. So I decided that a pair of socks would be a good idea. They are on size 2.25mm needles until the pattern is done, and then they switch to size 2mm for the bottom part of the sock to do all in white. The green is very cheery at this time of year before anything outside has really turned green-- except a few things are starting to emerge.
