It is foggy and very damp outside. I woke up around 4 this morning to the sound of rain which was lovely. But we are at about 95% humidity which is fairly uncomfortable. It's the type of weather that when I leave my office (highly air conditioned), my glasses fog up as soon as I walk outside. LOL
At any rate, time is marching on. How are we already at mid-August? It seems like just yesterday we were greeting the start of the month.
Fortunately there has been no unraveling this week. There also hasn't been a whole lot of knitting, but here is where the first watermelon sock is:
I'm loving the way this yarn is knitting up down to the dark grey/black specs that look like seeds. The yarn is Regia Cotton Tutti Frutti Color. 72% cotton, 18% polyamid and 10% polyester bought specifically with my friend Leslie in mind (since she is allergic to wool - can you imagine???). The yarn feels better than I expected and is knitting up nicely. Since the yarn is so colorful, I am just knitting a plain vanilla sock.
On the reading front, I am still working my way through The Dakota Winters and enjoying it (though it seems to be a bit heavy on the John Lennon side of things). I'm more than three quarters of the way through and will hopefully finish soon (it was due back on Overdrive last Friday, but oops, it is still on my Kindle). Meanwhile, I stopped at my library on my way home yesterday to pick up this book which I had requested - it looks really good!
Fletch and I watched another movie (!! - me!!) last night: The Hundred Foot Journey with Helen Mirren. It's free on Netflix. I really like Helen Mirren and it was about food, so what's not to like?
Head on over to Kat's to see what others are up to making these days.
