The Sock Takes A Field TripTonight, even though it was well over 90 degrees at first pitch, the sock and I went to see our very first Nationals game. Thanks to a friend-of-a-friend, we had AMAZING seats, and the sock thoroughly enjoyed the up-close view. It especially liked the complete game pitched by Patterson, who decided that 13 strikeouts sounded good. Oh, and the rest of the team decided to throw in a grand slam homerun, just because. 7-0!! :)
Of course, the sock had company - here's what a couple of law students look like in crazy heat + humidity!
Right before the socks headed off to the game, though, they picked up some new sockyarn (an ebay splurge!) - I got four colors -
"blaze," a mix of reds and oranges:
"forest," a mix of greens and browns:
"hearts" - pinks:
and "meadow" - shades of light green. This one looked AWFUL in the skein, but I love the way it looks wound up, so I'm hoping I'll like the way it knits up too. The color was really hard to capture - kind of a light sea green color with darker and lighter shadings. I think it's destined to be the next pair of socks I try - something for my sister-in-law.
And in other exciting news, my roommate finally came home from her month of studying in Israel! She brought lots of amazing presents, which I'll have to photograph, and I'm so glad she's back! Somehow, though, I don't think I'm the only one who missed her...
