Eye of the Beholder

Little jars, drinking glasses, and anything else that will hold water are full of these at our house. Apart from the sad fact that they are virtually the only thing blooming at present, they remind me every year of the beauty that may be seen by the unjudging eyes of a child.

On a more knitterly note, and now that my order is safely placed, Yarn Forward is having a 25% off sale. I picked up some sock yarn, including the intriguing Step by Austermann - wool / nylon with aloe vera and jojoba oil. They claim it remains after 40 washes, and I'm thinking it can only be a good thing for hiking socks. A pair for me and a pair for hubby, I think.
