The past few mornings have been beautiful - temps in the upper 50's and no humidity. I think that humidity will creep in today though and temps are to rise. The weekend was absolutely gorgeous weather-wise.
I'm happy to say that I did accomplish so much this weekend (and also managed to relax a bit). The bathrooms are once again safe to enter - lol - and the kitchen floor has been scrubbed. I'm not clear on how just two people can create so much dust and dirt, but it is what it is. All clean for a day or two anyway.
The YinYang Kitty socks are finished.
Yes, the eyes and nose on the dark kitty are difficult to see (a little better in person). I will probably go over the eyes with more green and use an embroidery stitch...but that is for another day. Right now I am just happy to have finished these. And, yes, one of the ears looks a bit wonky. But that's real life folks! I'm a relatively new knitter, so I'm just proud that I was able to get these finished (and ALL the ends woven in).
To celebrate that finish, I have some new starts:
On the right is the start of the first sleeve for my sweater that was started a year ago. On the left is a new pair of socks for my friend Leslie. She is allergic to wool, so this yarn is cotton and nylon. The stripes look like watermelon! I want to get these knit and finished before Sisters' Weekend at the end of October.
We had some visitors in our yard yesterday. Early in the morning I saw:
Later in the afternoon 4 showed up to eat the apples that have fallen from our tree. They also nibbled ALL the hostas and were beginning to consume one of our burning bushes!
Yesterday I looked and there are once again two frogs in our little water feature:
So cute! They are multiplying like rabbits - lol. There had been two a few weeks ago and then one of them was dead in the water (Tyg's doing??). Now there are two again. Hopefully they will remain safe, because this guy...:
He is so anxious to *play* with Froggy and Froggy Jr. They need to keep a sharp eye out for Mr. Tyg.
Wishing you all a wonderful week!
