Summer of Socks Continues

Today was one of the first days that I attempted to knit at our community pool. It was a very hot and humid day, but once I cooled off in the water, I was able to pull out my knitting, and of course, a sock is the perfect summer project in that it doesn't weigh you down.
I am enjoying my Ridged Feathers from Sensational Knitted Socks,and the Meilenweit 100 Fantasy, while not as squishy and soft as Socks that Rock, is growing on me. I'm satisfied with this pattern for this yarn, even though this self-patterning yarn would have looked fine (and maybe even a little better?) with plain stockinette. I just like to have some type of pattern interest to keep me going.
Meanwhile, the Gatsby Girl Pullover is coming out beautifully. These two projects are a nice contrast to one another for these hot summer days.

Even though you're not 110% excited about those socks - I am! I think they look great.

Thanks for your supportive comments on my blog about my parents. I didn't see an email addy for you, so I'm just saying hi here. I hope things are working out well for your parents, too.
