Pomatomus making progress in the park

I spent a few hours in the park today, knitting up a storm on my Pomatomus. Slightly modified. I do not like lace on my foot in the shoe. Almost done, I am at the toe decreases, so I thought I'll cast on for some leftover wool/bamboo leftover spiral socks. I like the colors together, but its too orderly for this spiral idea. I guess 3 wild variegated yarns will be much better. moreover, the tangles are just too much for a little socks. I think these yarns will do better as wide stripes. Sitting in the park was mixed emotions. gorgeous weather and lovely time, but too long a break from work (it was a slow day) so too much worry.
I am going to swatch today for the Secret of the Stole KAL. there will be beads, and I need to get a very very very thinn crochet hook. The yarn I'll use is Alpaca Cloud in color Mist, from Knitpicks. (I had it in the stash!) I am not sure which beads I'll use. Fall is here. Makes me happy. Cool and crisp sweater weather!

Wow. That's a tough decision on the beads - I like them both! The weather has just been gorgeous...playing hookey is good for the soul once in awhile..

The colors of this post are so pretty together. Glad you got out to play hooky. Can't wait to see which beads you decide on!

Oh, what gorgeous yarn and beads for the secret of the stole. I must look for that pattern. And, your socks in the park are coming along great. I want to make a pair in a solid color to show off the lively swirls.

Oh gosh not sure which colour beads I rather as both look god. I guess it depends on if you wanta cool or warm colour.
I have my beads for the KAL but I need to dye my yarn to match them !!!
