Yesterday was pretty hot and sticky, but we had a storm blow in after dinner and it really cleared the air. The temps dropped into the 70's and this morning is beautiful!
Saturday I met up with Dee in Skippack for some retail therapy, coffee, knitting and lunch out. Such a nice time - thanks Dee!!
Sunday morning I woke early and (weirdly) felt wide awake, so got up, put the coffee on and finished the second Sunflower sock. I love these!!
The second picture - on the legs - is more accurate of the colors in the yarn. I knit these on a larger needle (#2...but the larger #2), because there are only 54 stitches in the pattern. They fit perfectly. This is the pair with the different heel too - the garter ridge on either side of the heel. Again, the fit is great! I don't think the yarn shows the pattern very well...believe a solid color would be better for this pattern, but they are cute...they fit...and I love them.
I decided to pull out the Winter Sea shawl which has been marinating since we returned from our camping vacation in early May. I knit one row and realized my stitch count was off...tinked back and thought I corrected it, but when I tried to knit the next row I was off again. So...I tinked back the two rows I knit plus one other. at that point I was finished for the day. It is back in a bag and I need to count the stitches to see if I am at the right place.
I did finish the Alice Waters book (Coming to my Senses) which wasn't really about food at all (much to my disappointment), but it was a quick read and interesting since it was about the late 60's/early 70's. A bit self-serving, but then memoirs often are. Now I'm reading Brutality (a Fina Ludlow book by Ingrid Thoft) which I'm enjoying a lot. Very quick reading, but good. I think Kim is the one who mentioned this series on her blog. I'll definitely look for another.
Meanwhile, I've got my mammogram in a couple of hours, so I need to do a bit of work before I have to leave the office.
Wishing you all a wonderful week!
