Good Sock Morning

Hi Knitters,
I got up early this morning to some sock knitting and coffee. I opened my studio window to let in a chilly breeze, mmmm. I finished up the first Kaibashira sock in yarntini pumpkin spice. How good is that? The cuff edging is time-consuming but a sweet touch. You cast on 187 stitches to start. That is the most stitches I have ever put on 3 small dpns but I did it. I think it is well worth all of that counting, good detail. I am itching to start my second sock later today.
The pumpkin spice sock was finished along with my first cup of coffee. Along with my second cup I finished up the never-ending sereknity watermelon sock. Finally fini! They feel good, very squishy and thick. I have lucky feet, indeed.
My daughter ran out and joined me on the front step while I was taking pictures. She saw what I was doing and ran back in to get her Fixation socks I made for her a couple of years ago. After she put her handknit socks on she told me she was going to leave them on for awhile they felt so good. I agreed.
Happy Sunday.
best, susie
p.s. I have machine washed and dried the heck out of those fixation socks and they still look pretty darn good! What a yarn.
