Here is the little drawing that I did at Jiffy Lube. It was one of those Norfolk Island Pine plants that some people use as Christmas trees. I found it very fun to draw. I haven't decided if I will add color to it or not. It used a Faber Casteel Pitt pen size F in a large moleskine sketchbook.
Here are the problem socks out of Trekking XXL. You can't see the problem here. The yarn is pretty so I will persevere with them.
Here is the other pair of socks I am doing. The yarn consists of a strand of black along with a strand a variegated colors in the red - orange range. I have no problems with this yarn yet.
