Happy end of July! I know many of you are not happy with that, but for me it means we are inching steadily closer to my favorite season - FALL! There are still the dog days of August, but Fletch and I have started planning our Fall camping trip (New England!!) and I'm excited about that.
Meanwhile, this last day of July is starting off pretty muggy in Eastern PA. I've received texts and emails regarding flood warnings from 2 p.m. - 8 p.m. today. Maybe the rain will help break the humidity a bit?
On the knitting side of things, there has not been any unraveling...and there hasn't been a whole lot of knitting either, but I do have a new start:
Not much to look at right now, but these will be YinYang Kitty Ankle Socks - a free pattern on Ravelry. I'm already on the heel flap for the first sock! This is Intarsia knitting which I have never done before, so wish me luck. The other night when I woke up at 3 a.m. and couldn't get back to sleep, guess what I was thinking about? Yup - Intarsia knitting. It may be a little tricky on DPNs. but I'm sure I can do it. This is also a toe-up pattern which I am knitting cuff down. At some point I want to try/learn toe-up socks, but thought this pattern would not be the smartest one to start with - lol.
My reading slump seems to have (thankfully) disappeared. I'm about 1/3+ of the way through The Dakota Winters and am enjoying it. Fletch and I should finish The Mysterious Island (Jules Verne) tonight. We have really enjoyed this (especially having read 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea last year).
