From flower to yarn

We bought some flowers that had these plastic nets protecting the crowns. I have been using them to keep the yarn together while I work or in storage.
Now that I figured out a system that works for making socks, I am loving this Koigu yarn to make a pair for Antea. I am using a combination of the KNIT Freedom pattern (for casting on) and Carol Feller's Japanese short-row method (for turning the heel). I feel I am really getting the hang of this and want to make tons of socks. I think I will make them less pointy the next time though...
