Greeting From the City on the Bay

Were the sun is shining, and the weather is mild.

Yesterday-it off to the California Academy of Sciences--I am always a sucker for science museums. Master C wanted to see the Penguins--and had to be dragged though Jungle/rain forest and butterfly exhibit.. (where, of course he throughly enjoyed looking at frog, and snakes and all manner of other things.

I loved seeing the palm fruits almost as much as the butterflies--that were doing their best to be flutterby's--but this one posed for the camera.

On the knitting front--or should I say rear--here are the details of the subway sock heel and gussets.

When the sock are off, they have the strangest shape--but on--they feel and fit fine. the flap of heel turns under more with a Dutch or square turning, but the fit and feel are fine.

On the plane here, Purple Petals --(or are the Purple Passion Flowers? or Flower Power or ?) well-- the newest socks-- got started. A double ruffle edge, and color work, made the first few rows --and yes, I do mean rows--complex--but now--I am just ribbing, --and will end the ribbing with a simple stripe, band continue the rest of sock in socking knit. Or perhaps some combo of stocking knit and ribbin--like some fancy bits on the heel flap, too.. but nothing much.

But you'll have to wait to see them!

Lovely yarn!! Have a terrific time in SanFran (sounds like that's where you are). It's expensive to live there, but a hoot to visit! Have fun!
