Unraveled Wednesday

Joining Kat and friends for Unraveled Wednesday.

Spring has finally arrived, the season where I can place my knitting on various blooming plants for photos. 

I call this one sock with bleeding heart.

Sock in redbud.

Sock in plum tree.

Sock with hyacinths, clematis, and grape hyacinth.

All of these are to show that I'm trying to be monagamous with my sister's found socks to actually finish them before too much more time passes. I've got two more four-row repeats of the waffle pattern before the heel flap, so progress is being made.

Spring has meant a little less time for reading as I've been doing lots of yard and garden work, but I did finish Stephen Fry's excellent reading of Sherlock Holmes in audio while raking, weeding, clearing, and planting. Fry and Holmes are a combination that was meant to be and I know I'll re-listen in the future. I also finished another excellent book that I know I'll re-read, Foolproof. It's about math, but the author Brian Hayes is so skilled a writer that he can explain almost anything mathematical. This book seems to have cured my previous reading slump, so I've just started A Mind at Play, a promising book about Claude Shannon. I'm hoping to make some time in the next week for Claude and sock knitting.

What are you making and reading this week?


  1. Good Morning! What a beautiful tour your sock has taken us on this morning. Thanks for making my mundane work morning just that much brighter!

  2. Such lovely blooms Bonny! The sock looks great - You'll have those completed in no time!

  3. I love the various views of your sock in the wild! I'm terrible about knitting socks, I always finish the first one fine, then I get bored and never finish the second one.

  4. Those blooms are the perfect foil for sock knitting! I am also doing monogamous knitting and it is amazing how much you can get done! :)

  5. Isn't Blueberry Waffle a GREAT pattern.

  6. Love your sock touring the yard!

  7. Good for you, trying to get those socks finished! I love all the flowers. ;)
    I have soaked & pinned out a sweater this morning between changing out storms windows & screens around the house.

  8. That's one lucky sock . . . posing among the blooms there in your garden! Lovely (all of it -- socks, blooms, blue sky)!

  9. The sock with the blooms is lovely. A bleeding heart I was given last Spring survived and looks to be growing. I am anxious to see the color of the blossoms. All of the blooms are a welcome sight.

  10. Your blossoms are just a bit behind ours and I'm thrill to see the plums and hyacinths since ours are gone! I should take my sock out more and show it around.

  11. I love your socks and I love the photo shoot!! SPRING!

  12. I just pre-ordered Foolproof in paperback. It sounds fascinating!

    1. I do hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

  13. I must say that's one lucky sock to see so many pretty blooms and blossoms! and yay for the end of a reading slump ... I'm not sure yet that Eleanor Oliphant is going to end mine, but she has kept me from watching the last episode of this season of Homeland, which does say something.
