Sum Sum Summertime


Eek! How’d we get to Wednesday already? And while we’re at it, how is it that the kids are already going back to school?! It seems so early, but a lot of the schools in our area are starting this week. Time flies, for sure.

This was the view from the cook out we to on Saturday. It’s kind of hard to tell in the picture, but the grade is pretty steep. At one point the wind caught the tent thing on the left and launched it into the air and off down the hill. Efforts to resurrect it proved futile, but we got to laugh a lot.


Sunday, we hiked along a rocky creek that runs through the woods for a mile and a half or so before it gets too steep and tangled to follow.



The picture at the top of this post is a shot of a pair of my handknit socks in action on the trail. Woohooo!! Here’s another.


I knit these socks in my blindly follow the pattern days, and they’re a bit shorter than I like. They work well with my hiking boots, though, and they’re super comfy.

Here’s my friend D trying not to get her feet wet. I normally ask before posting anyone’s picture, but she’s an actress, so I’m hoping she won’t mind. I love the look on her face.


On the knitting front, I’m making progress on CeCe. I’m hoping to start the neck shaping today. I’ve already ordered some Peace Fleece DK for my next sweater, so I want to to go ahead and wrap things up with CeCe.

I also cast on some socks in the newest installment of String Theory Sock Club yarn, “Capacitor” (in the “Inertia” base). All the colorways over at String Theory are named for sciency things.


Can you see the teeny capacitor stitch marker? I love it! There’s always some kind of fun stitch marker with the sock club yarn, but this one is the best so far.



Talk to me!
