Of pink socks and posies

baby socks 

We're having a very quiet weekend as both the boys are away with their families so Omi didn't do brunch today . Instead we met up with Shirley and her husband Denis which made a nice beginning to the day .

 Came home to do a little tidying up and then picked my needles to continue working on these little socks . This yarn found me at my LYS the other day and I just couldn't resist casting on right away . I wish I had picked up other colourways  , they are just so much fun to knit , almost instant gratification . I'm going through my sock yarn remnants to knit more . A baby can't have too many socks ...

Spring surprise
Surprise bouquet
I have a few of these pretty little posies growing in the cracks between some of the patio stones . I just love them . We let them grow and they reseed themselves .

Hope you have a peaceful weekend too !

Baby socks are adorable - and I love that yarn!
The pansies are so cute - I'm hoping mine come back - they are marked as annuals, but sometimes they keep going!

Such adorable little socks. Congrats on the quick finish. I definitely think you need to go back for some more yarn.

I love the little violas growing in the cracks. My granddaddy grew those in his yard too. :-)

So cute. That's why I have to be careful about going into yarn store ... all that yarn just waiting to find me :)

Isn't it just the loveliest time of the year with all the fresh spring blooms?!
