FO Friday

 I purchased some shelves from a 'going out of business' sale at a yarn shop....sad for them but I enjoyed organizing all my sock yarn here!  (Nyki has a habit of emptying the other shelves I have of their contents so she can snuggle in the cubby.....she has already emptied the one on the bottom all the way to the right twice today-I might leave it empty for her.  Maybe.)
 Another way to reduce the sock yarn stash, finish a pair of socks!  These are toe-up with a bit of cable up the leg.   It is knit from the KnitPicks Hawthorne line of sock yarn.
 I had a doctor's appointment in St. Augustine so we went to the newly renovated beach at their pier when I was finished!
 All of this sand-tons and tons were brought in to replace the beach erosion.
 This is the cement break wall and it used to drop off 15" to rocks and the previous beach level.  It is very nice to see the way they cared for the beach now.  (Here is a pic from there a bit over a year ago to compare)
 After the beach visit, we traveled a bit south to our second favorite restaurant, the South Beach Grill.  The weather is perfect in Florida right now.....
 I finished binding off the Georgia Geology Shawl!
 I soaked it and blocked it this morning.
 The detail doesn't show up as much as it did on the solid color yarn but the overall affect...
 is pretty spectacular!
I can't wait to wear it!  (Also knit from the Hawthorne line of sock yarn from KnitPicks!)
