Socktoberfest! And A Garden Makeover!

Ah, Socktoberfest! I make socks all the time, but there's something so organized about Socktoberfest.

And to get everyone started, here's some inspiration:

Happy Socktoberfest, ya'll!

Some of you may remember when I posted about the sad state of the flowerbed in front of our house. Just to remind you, it looked like this:

Hello, I'm an Emma who knits too, and stumbled across your site while trying to (re)find the Knitty Cozy pattern, which I love and have made several wraps from, but then misplaced the pattern. Anyway, your cozy looks gorgeous. I'll have to peruse your site some more!
