Actually, this is fresh OFF the needles. My July socks are done…
…and the August socks have been cast on. Well, actually, ONE of them has been cast on. I have once again abandoned the “2-at-a-time” method. It just adds a layer of stress to my knitting, and this is supposed to be relaxing and fun. Since I don’t have the dreaded “2nd sock syndrome” it is not a biggie. I’ll keep knitting socks one at a time and enjoying it.
Also on the needles is a practice run on the Reader’s Wrap.
patiently trying to be patient in waiting for my KnitPicks order to arrive. For the last 2 days I have run to the mail box as soon as I hear the mail carrier go by… still no package. BUMMER! The lovely wool tweed yarn that is ordered will make such a wonderful wrap, but it is slow in appearing.
I was so antsy to get going on this project I decided to do a trial run. The above yarn is some acrylic Red Heart yarn I just had lying around. I’ve made a dry run on the cast on and knitting so there will be no stress once the yarn arrives.
Some have asked via email how we managed the storm (hurricane Isaac) and the truth is it went too far west of us to give us more than a spattering of rain. We were surely hoping for at least a couple of inches, but only received about 5/8”. I sure wish folks on the eastern side of LA and MS could send us some of the water that has flooded their areas.
You simply MUST click on the picture to see the ridges on his back. AMAZING! From a distance I thought it was the average spider. As I moved closer I thought it was a huge stink bug. Closer still, and I was amazed at him. God’s creation is SO wonderful!
And I also suddenly remembered that I have forgotten to finish my “Redneck” post, so that will be in the queue for sometime soon.
Have a wonderful weekend!
