Not So Much Knitting

So it's finally spring and I've been playing in the garden a lot. Look I have roses!

And socks. These are Wanida in Austerman Step Classic and I really like them. No modifications on these but I might make them longer if I did them again.

I've found that for my funny feet with the high insteps a gusset of at least 2 1/2 inches works the best. I think that the heel gusset makes the biggest difference in the fit of the socks, at least for me.

And for some mindless knitting after the workout in the garden, I've been knitting these squares out of my leftover sock yarn. You know, the little bits that you can't bear to throw away when the socks are done. I think the original calls for a lot more squares than I'm willing to make so mine will probably be baby quilt size.

It's been a fun trip down memory lane remembering where I was when I bought the yarn or what was going on when I knit those socks. Do you remember what was happening in your life when you were knitting something?
