Isn't it purty? Fits nicely and the yarn did bloom and soften nicely when washed. I would give Red Heart Heart & Sole thumbs up. Not as fantastic as the $22-25 per skein sock yarns, but certainly as good as KnitPicks Essential Sock yarn.
Second sock has been CO and the cuff is finished.
Bare Bones: A Novel by Kathy Reichs
rating: 4 of 5 stars
Kathy Reichs' books is a lot like Patricia Cornwall's early Kay Scarpetta books. Which is a good thing. I really loved PC in the early books. The last four or five should never have been written.
Kathy Reich's heroine, Temperance Brennan, is a forensic anthropologist. Her expertise is called into play in North Carolina and Montreal, Canada, where she joins law enforcement officials in determining what can be determined from the bones that are found.
She often works with a Canadian inspector, Andrew Ryan. He's cute and hunky and highly intelligent.
This book is based in North Carolina and Tempe strings together the bones of a new born baby found in a wood stove, the hands and head of a human found in an outhouse, the remains of a valuable tropical parrot, and bear bones.
The TV show Bones is very loosely based on these books. So loosely that I really think the only thing they have in common is the name Temperance Brennan, forensic anthropology and a hunky side kick. Both the show and books are good in their own right. Kathy Reichs, a forensic anthropologist writes about Temperance Brennan and the TV Temperance Brennan writes novels about a fictional forensic anthropologist named Kathy Reichs.
