Hawaii - the water & rocks

I have been on vacation as you know. I tried to improve my photography skills. With the black volcanic rock of The Big Island and the pale blue of the ocean it proved a challenge. The above photo is one of my best pictures.

I was only there for two weeks. It was fun but a bit too hot for me. I really love the Pacific NW and its moderate temperatures and the ability to wear wool most of the year. Since I got back a month ago, I have been working on designs and enjoying my time off.

Churchable's mariners sock

I have been feeling guilty that I have not knit Churchable a pair of socks since the 4th of July in 2007. He is over do for a pair of socks. I started the above socks quite a while ago but I disliked them with a passion and refused to work on them. So I frogged them and started over 2 weeks ago. I really trucked through the foot.

Flair in progress

Its the October Holiday Stockpile on the Malabrigo Junkie Ravelry Group. I have done a few designs and knit a new cowl using a technique that I have never done before. I decided that I really needed winter coats so I started Flair last Monday and split off the arms this weekend. I have come to a decision point.

Flair button choices

Which button looks better?
