Saturday Snippets

I felt the need to add some fiber into my diet, so I got out this lovely sock yarn to wind into balls.

The challenge was to make 2 even sized balls, I'm thinking about trying to knit 2 socks at the same time, on 2 circular needles.
The picture makes them look more even than they are, but I think they will work out. I started a gauge swatch and then tried some lace patterns which weren't successful so these are temporarily dropped.

I have challenged myself to finish my knitted bear this weekend, finished the ears and started sewing him together last night.

Back to our regularly scheduled flower pictures.

Rock Roses are so cheery!
Close up, such fun textures.
Finally Shasta Daisies, they are basically wild I just try to keep them in check. Lovely weekend in store, so inspiring when the little weather icons are just sunshine so I'm off for some morning weeding.
