Proud to be a Canadian. 
Also?  I conquered the yarn diet! 
And the stupid Flat Feet socks.  You've heard of Flat Feet, right?  Knitting directly from a flat piece of knitted fabric?  Yeah, that stuff.  Bleh!  I received it in a swap a few years ago.  These socks have been in my WIP basket for months.  I'd work a few rows, get disgusted with the kinky fabric I was creating, turf the thing back in the basket.  Not that the time out made it behave any better.  Don't get me wrong: the person that sent it to me picked the perfect colour for me.  I love the colours in these socks. Just the product is not my cup of tea. I've been working pretty steadily on these things for a few weeks just to get them done.  It's never taken me weeks to finish a pair of socks.  That's just nutty, but just shows you how much I dislike the product.  The socks need to be soaked and blocked.  I don't have sock blockers so a good soaking and stretching will have to do.   

And since it's pouring here on this Canada Day, I'll leave you with a couple shots of the best thing to do on a rainy day.

Definitely the way to deal with rain. Yay for pretty finished socks! said...

Barbara, your cats are so lovely! I like your posts. The fourth photo amuses me most. A superb photo, I should say. You really love animals, don't you?
