Gosh the sun seems to be late coming up these days. Colin mentioned last night how the mornings are so dark - he used to get up and be walking before 6 a.m. and now it is too dark to walk at that time.
Yesterday I did go for another walk in the Oaks park. Another 3 miles. Where I feel it is in the front of my ankles. Weird! I've been hesitant to go to the canal path because that is not paved and with all the mud and debris at the Oaks park, I'm thinking the canal path may have been washed over. But, I might just check it out (later) today. Depends on how busy it gets work-wise.
However, right now let's talk knitting! It is Unraveled Wednesday and fortunately there has been no unraveling this week. Instead I actually have a finish!
The first Hawk sock is complete and the second one has been started. The Petty Harbor pattern (free on Ravelry) is a 4 row repeat. The new start has the cuff ribbing complete and 2 repeats of the pattern. A bit of a way to go yet - sock #1 has 20 pattern repeats on the leg. But, little by little and it will get finished.
I took the Hellebore Hitchhiker over to Colin & Mailing's last night to work on, but never took it out of the bag. We had a lovely dinner: a huge garden salad, yellow rice and chicken empanadas with green salsa (home-made). We were all too full for dessert and then the night was so lovely we had a fire in their fire pit and sat around talking for a few hours. Suddenly it was 10:00 and time to get home.
We brought home some of the home-made salsa verde and some patty-pan squash, cukes and peppers from their CSA haul last week. Their long counter in the kitchen was literally covered in produce and they will be picking up another batch on Friday! Summer Bounty for sure.
As usual, I'm linking up with Kat for Unraveled Wednesday. Happy mid-week!!
I missed out on the local CSA this year. I heard the local farmers stand is opened again so I should swing by for some new options. The grocery store produce is pretty boring.ReplyDelete
I've noticed the evenings are definitely getting darker too.ReplyDelete
But at least here, we've lost the horrible humidity!
Sock is looking fabulous. I love that yarn.
lovely sock! I love the darkness and now that it is a bit cooler I am even happier!!ReplyDelete
I feel fall in the air. It's still too warm for me but the early mornings seem crisper and darker. I am sooooooo ready. This summer has been a trial by fire.ReplyDelete
Congrats on no unraveling.ReplyDelete
I can't say the same. LOL But, I think I'm on the right path now.
Hawk made a handsome sock: I really like the colors. Summer produce is THE best!ReplyDelete
I like Hawk and of course, the pattern. I use it often. It sounds like you had a lovely time at Colin and Mailings. It's getting dark much earlier here too. I hate to see the summer evenings shorten.ReplyDelete
Love the sock, Vera! The colors and striping are wonderful. :-) I have really noticed how dark it is in the morning when I wake up these days (6:00). And the nights are really cooling down . . . Change is in the air.ReplyDelete
Bravo on the sock finish.. it's perfect for fall.. who will be the lucky recipient? We aren't allowed to have fires here in fear of wildfires. Hopefully we can use our outdoor fireplace when it cools down. Don't work too hard! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)ReplyDelete
you know how i long to have my kiddos around a campfire on these gorgeous summer nights! I love hearing about yours..ReplyDelete
The finished sock looks great. Your dinner and evening sound wonderful. The days are getting noticeably shorter.
I love that sock.ReplyDelete
Summer produce is really peaking. I have to be careful not to load up, or lots will go to waste. Especially when I don't feel like doing much cooking.
I can enjoy a meal of all veggies--fresh is so good! The socks look great--nice progress on them!ReplyDelete
Bravo on finishing a sock! And I have been thinking about creative ways to utilize the explosion of things from the garden!ReplyDelete
Part of my kitchen counter is covered in the neighbor's squash - three varieties, our tomatoes, and peaches from the store. Oh and a melon from the neighbor's garden Summer bounty indeed. The sock looks great. And you are off on the second one. Hooray.ReplyDelete
