Back to the Soup

I got a nice ham hock at the market last week, so naturally, I wanted to make soup.  I bought a bag of soup beans and sort of followed the instructions on the back.  I added more onion and garlic and tomatoes than called for, and added about a cup of baby carrots sliced lengthwise.  I cooked it until the meat fell off the bone.  I removed the bones and as much fat as possible and shredded the larger pieces of ham.  It turned out great.

P1050334   I hadn’t made any socks lately, so I made these.   Purple and brown isn’t something that I would normally choose, but the little flacks of many colors were very intriguing.  I can’t find the label.  It probably fell behind the rolling carts in my long closet.  The cats like to rummage around in there and I had the yarn sitting out.  I know the yarn company,  I’ve made socks with their yarn before.  It consists of four letters that I can never remember, but easily recognise. The yarn is quite sturdy, but still comfortable on my feet.  I really like the way they look on my feet.  The pattern is Mona from ‘knit. sock. love’ by Cookie A.  I used the eye of partridge on the heel and made a rounded toe.  I love the yarn.  I love the pattern.  I’m happy.
