Wowza

Where in the world has the last month gone??? I always think for some reason that summer is going to be less busy and chaotic than the school year. Right.

So, we bought a new van...

She is a 2008 Town & Country Limited and has 2 DVD/TV screens, navigation, hands free phone, backup alarm and camera, swivel seats, a table, and I'm head over heels in love with her. I can see us keeping her until her wheels fall off.

I got a new phone...


The Blackberry Curve in silver. I started with the Blackberry Pearl in pink but found it too hard for my poor text-challenged fingers to work. I can't begin to tell you how much I love my phone. It's awesome. The clarity is amazing and the capabilities are to dye for.

Bet you're thinking I've not done any knitting though huh? Well I have. Just look...

This is a little hat I knit for Darcie. It's knit in Catalina Chunky Baby Alpaca and takes less than 2 skeins. You hold the yarn doubled and knit on a size 11. Can you say 1 nite knit?

These are the Thuja socks I started for Daddy a really long time ago. They're finally finished and on his feet. He loves them. I knit these from Mountain Colors Bearfoot that I purchased from a fellow Ravelry user.And this is Girly from Wee Knits 3. What a fun knit this was! I never would have chosen these colors on my own but they work so well together. It's such a sweet sweater. I knit the 6 month size in the Mission Falls 1824 Cotton as called for in the pattern. Love it! I think I just might hang on to this one and donate it to the auction for St. Bernard's this year since the bag was such a hit.

Those are just the few projects I've actually finished since last time. There's lots more that's been cast on and I'll be sharing them soon.

I'm working on putting together a Mystery Sock/Fingerless Glove Knit A Long. We'll be starting on the 18th of this month and Sue will be offering a sweet discount on Tofutsie yarn for it. You can also knit from stash for this one so if you'd like to join just drop me a note to get signed up!

I hope you're all having a wonderful summer! I'd love to hear what everyone else has been knitting (or not)!

Wow, a fancy new van, a techie new Blackberry phone, and finished knitting. Are your feet still on this planet, or are you floating a few thousand miles above it? LOL

You have been a very busy lady, and whatever gave you the idea that summer was a lazy and laid back time? It's always been the busiest time for me. I can't garden in the Winter. And don't you know I'm STILL waiting for my tomatoes to ripen! :)
