Day 6/365: Toe-Up Hand-Dyed Merino Wool Sock


The bad news is that my little winter holiday is over.  I went back to prison today.  I forgot how a ten-hour work day can be exhausting.  Sean returned to Ventura this morning; he’s flying out to Florida tomorrow and will be there with family for a week.  We won’t see each other again until next Thursday evening, when I head back to the Ventura homestead to report for jury duty on Friday the 16th.  Such is the life of having full-time state jobs that are 150 miles apart.

Tonight I’m working on this sock.  The yarn is a pretty hand-dyed merino wool.  If you click on the photo, you’ll be able to see a larger image and get a closer look at the colors.  I’ll probably knit a few rows and fall asleep.  I have to be back at work again in less than twelve hours.
