The First Blooms of Spring

I've had these done for a while, but just haven't gotten arround to getting a decent photo of them. My Lilac socks in the lilac bushes... The bushes haven't quite bloomed yet, but they will soon and then it will smell heavenly for a few days.
And another finished object. These are the Dresser Scarf socks from Interweave Knits a few years ago. Sorry - I don't have the issue, I borrowed it from the library and forget to make a note of the date... They are made out of Cascade Fixation. It was the first time that I had used it and I really liked how it knit. The socks were fun, but a bit of a challenge in that the cuff is knit flat and grafted, and not just simple grafting but garter stitch grafting. It was definitely alone in a room without any television, radio or conversation.

And finally, Mr. Me's very basic 2 X 2 rib work socks.

There are a few more FOs around here that I need to photograph, including the red mohair shawl - yay!

All your socks are great but oh those lilac ones are smashing!!! I made mine out of a much paler lavender and they don't do justice to the pattern as yours do.
Enjoy, Ruth in NJ
