Finished My Socks!

Ta-Da!  Finished.  The other night one of my sister's was here visiting and she wove in all the hanging yarns for me while we chatted.  Isn't that great company?  I don't like weaving ends.
I have cast on a new pair - this pair won't have such long cuffs. Do you ever get to this stage and stop and wonder if you should make your start of a sock into a glove?  I think this pattern would be very pretty for gloves, but maybe in a solid color. 
Knitting is more portable than sewing with a machine, so that is what I am going with these days.  I do have a few small sewing projects I would like to get to, and maybe, maybe I will get around to it some time this week?  Maybe not.  I am busy.  And when I am not busy - I try to get outside to enjoy my beautiful Cape Cod.  Yes, it is cold, but oh so lovely.  
One of these days I might be able to sit down and catch my breath enough to tell you a few good stories, but in the meantime enjoy my photos!  As the saying goes - a picture is worth a thousand words.

My sister misses me - she is in a grumpy stage right now, so I am glad to not be there, yet, know she would love me to be back. You are a wounderful sister to be able to do this for her. I had to come home to my job and family, although.......
yes, knitting is easier than sewing when you have to travel - and you are doing a good job. I don't wear socks, so I don't know if I would like knit ones or not!! I LOVE your photos!!!!! I really have to get out to the coast here sometime soon - beautiful!!!!
And I can just imagine the stories you'll tell when you can!! hugs!!
