Park Bliss


This morning was gorgeous. 
Perfect for going to the park. 
Supplies for the kiddos...


Supplies for me...


Snow on the high mountains...


Bright colors everywhere...


Abandoned for a moment...


Quiet knitting in the shade...


A completed pair to take home...


I love how the colors almost glow in the dappled shade...


Aren't double rainbows supposed to be a sign of good luck...


A really lovely morning at the park :)

P.S.  Don't forget about my giveaway!

What a beautiful day ... and a pair of socks at the end of it in such beautiful colours! Fantastic! x

Staci, what beautiful socks and beautiful scenery! How I wish we had that kind of weather. It's 99 degrees right now (4:00)with horribly high humidity and I can barely stand to walk out the door.

I so enjoy seeing the pictures of your knitting and stitching and have bought me a book that was suggested that I HOPE will help me learn to knit, too.

Thank you for sharing with us!
HUGS!

Your day looks awesome and even better then the socks I love the wonderful afternoon of memories you created.....your weather sure looks better than our upper 90's here on the east coast.

I love your rainbow knitted socks. I am trying to knit a Christmas sock for my Grandson and trying to figure out a easy way to create the heel. Help!

We don't have views like that in Florida! It looks so pretty and it certainly looks more comfortable than the heat we're having.

Your socks match perfectly!

What great socks and you had the perfect spot to finish them off too! So far I've been too afraid to try doing my stitching outside. I don't want my threads blowing away. ;-)

Dear Staci,

But I also adore your beautiful blanket ;-)
Have a nice week!

Hazel said...

Gorgeous socks! There is no way I could go to the park and do that with my little ones. Maybe one day. x

Michele B. said...

Thanks for taking me along vicariously on your lovely day in the park. I wish I could have been sitting beside you, learning how to knit socks!

Elaine said...

Great post Staci, thank-you for sharing your day with us.

Virginia said...

Ooh, lovely. And I adore the stripey rainbow socks. They are awesome.

Great socks! What yarn did you use? Love that afghan in the background, too.

Charlene ♥ SC said...

Love your socks! Productive picnic! Have I told you your new blog look is cool and soothing - nice job.

Nancy said...

A perfect day wearing the perfect pair of socks!

Deb said...

It looks like the most perfect day. Such beautiful scenery and wonderful socks.

Tanya said...

I would LOVE bliss like that ... my littlest is 3 and my eyes are on his at all times - I'm like a hawk. LOL The pool is like stress level 50 for me ... I can't read there, can't stitch there ... nothing! But childhood is fleeting and they'll only be little once ... and Mama can deal.
In the meanwhile, I'll look at your park bliss and just be amazed at finishing a pair of socks on a park trip!

Hello Staci, it looks like you had a beautiful Colorado day. Aren't we privileged to live here. Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment !! It makes me so happy. I only have a few followers (17) and I treasure each one of them. I have a long way to go compared to your 400 and something :-)

Siobhan said...

What a fantastic, beautiful day it looks like you had. :) Love the socks, and the blanket on which you sat while making them!
