Apricots & Femme Fatale

I went over to some friends house last Friday and picked apricots from their tree. The tree was the biggest apricot tree I've ever seen & had dropped lots of apricots already. The yard was a gooey, sticky mess and their driveway was too. Bad idea to plant an apricot tree near a driveway! By the time I got home I had apricot goo all over my shoes & even on my shorts. But it was worth it! Yummy!! This picture is a very small sampling of all the apricots I got. I had 5 times this many!

And here's a pic of the Apricot Coconut Squares (except that I did not put coconut).

I finished the Femme Fatale Wrap yesterday at knitting group. I gave it to L because she admired it early on. I hope she uses it! Here are the specifics:

Pattern: Femme Fatale Wrap Creative Knitting Nov. 2007
yarn: Malabrigo Worsted - Black 4 hanks
Needles: Knitpicks Harmony size 7 US
Started: April 13, 2010
Finished: June 14, 2010

I did make some mods to the pattern & found a couple of errors. These are detailed on my Ravelry project page which I am sharing.

Also finished the socks within the last few weeks. They are ok. A little bit rough on the inside to my sensitive feet. I tried felting them a little bit with no luck. Wouldn't you know it? When you want something to felt it won't.
