I think I've already asked this question, but how did it get to be the end of July already? The summer is flying by.
Yesterday I did not manage to go through my yarn looking for fingerless mitt yarn. I'll try to do that today. And the only knitting I managed to do was on the Hellebore Hitchhiker after dinner.
Looks the same as last time, doesn't it? I swear it is a little longer, it's just difficult to see that. This Hitchhiker is taking FOREVER to knit. I'm not sure why as the yarn is wonderful to knit with and I love the colors. Usually I find knitting a Hitchhiker to be meditative and relaxing...but this time it is just boring to me. But, I will carry on and get it finished...at some point. Meanwhile, I really need to pull out something else to work on too.
Did you see Clara Parke's Respite page from yesterday with the crocheted cat couches? (Val - thinking of you!!) I sent it to Colin & Mailing with a note that I would NOT be making any cat couches. Colin replied with this picture:
What a fluff ball Marcel is! And...the crocheted afghan (one HUGE granny square) is the one I made in college (so it is 45+ years old!!).
I'm still slowly getting through "Song Yet Sung" but am only about 50% of the way finished. Another thing that is taking me forever! Fletch and I did finish reading "Survival of the Bark Canoe" by John McPhee (a re-read for us, but enjoyable) and we have started "Woodswoman" by Anne LaBastille (another re-read).
On the agenda today - we both are having blood drawn so are heading to the lab together mid-morning. Mine is for the Lyme test to see if it is indeed what my rash was. And then our neighbor Rob is coming over for dinner tonight (making chicken stir fry).
Be sure to head over to Kat's to see what others are making and reading. Happy mid-week!!
