Sunshine in the Sunshine

I call these Sunshine Socks, they're knit with the old Bernat Sox that was all acrylic and came in 50g skeins. This was the last colorway we had left at the store many moons ago, and I got it for sentimental reasons. (The very first real sock yarn I used, ie yarn that wasn't chunky yarn to make work socks, was Bernat Sox in the hippi hot colorway, of which I still have and wear on a regular basis.) These were started on April 5 and finished the 10th. I used 2.75mm needles and knit a little tighter than I normally would since it's a bigger needle than I usually use. Cast on 60sts and did a simple 3x2 rib. Ravelry details here. Cheap pair of socks considering I only paid $1 per skein.

This is the look I get from the girls in the morning when I vacuum. Maggie shoots the evil eye, Jewel won't look at me.

The other night I was on the computer, and I noticed the dogs were laying near me. Then I looked and saw that Jewel was using Maggie's head for a pillow. Then I had to sneak a photo without disturbing them. Maggie heard me, she opened her eyes but didn't move.

Here's Pumba with his you-don't-really-need-to-read-these-flyers look. He's probably thinking he needs cat treats.

T at work went to Mexico for 10 days. He brought me back this nice canvas bag to put my yarn in. Right now it's holding a cardigan for me that I started back in January that barely has any knitting completed on it. Had to set it aside for too many other things. I worked on it a bit last night.

That's about it. The weather has been nice, so I've been doing yard work. My wrist was bothering me some, too, so I had to cool off on the knitting for a bit. Seems to be okay for now.
Happy knitting!

Great socks!

My cats scatter when the vacuum cleaner comes out (which will be in about five minutes) and I think you better get Pumba some treats STAT!

Love your bright and cheerful socks!
Gunni tries to kill the vacuum cleaner whenever it comes out, no laying quietly and staring at it! Also brooms, shovels, rakes, anything with a long handle. He must have had a bad experience somewhere before we got him!

Love the socks , such a nice happy colour ! Bingo could care less about the vacuum , but the cats head for the hills . You'd think I was going to murder them . They have the same reaction to Jessey who is completely in love with them . He spends half his time saying "chat, chat " and following them through the house . They usually end up under the bed hiding from the little human . Too funny !

Love the sunny socks! The dogs are too adorable! Kitty too, you're right, there's definitely a 'where's the snacks?' look in the eyes...

Our dogs attack the vaccum cleaner when we put it on...I don't know why, its always been very nice to them...
