It's a sock!
I think I love it! After all the battles and a few curt comments, I really like the end product! The leg and cuff were fun, and I must admit - a wonderful way of using up scrap yarns. There are 9 different yarns in this sock. My plan is to make the mate of the same yarns, but in a different order of things. So, should be fun. I may do solid darker brown for the heel. I actually have enough scraps to do a green pair, a blue pair, and perhaps a greyish pair. Enough yarn, but probably not enough time in my life to get all the projects done that are floating around in my head!!
I am also going to post a picture of a "Rose tree". It is actuallyl just an old fashioned antique rose - a "Seven Sisters". Early this spring, my grandpuppy, while enthusiasically running laps along the side of the fence, ran right into the rose bush....got caught, and what a situation he was in. Yelps and rose thorns later..., well grampa did a little trimming. Now, it looks like a rose tree indeed. But, still quite lovely, I think. Notice it's height. That is the neighbor's garage next to it. You can see it reaches up to the roof!
