Almost August

anybody know how to make the header picture smaller? that's crazy big 

Wow, hasn't this summer been flying by? Seems it just got warm outside and now it's cooled off again (I'm certainly not complaining about it either) Phew, I don't like the heat.

We enjoyed a vacation that was too short. Same as every vacation we ever take.
I read a good book 
and started another
and did way too much knitting...my arm and shoulder are still punishing me for it.

I finished a pair of socks...
started another...

Made some progress on my beaded cowl...
and got a cute new bag from my friend Susan at GirlCaveBags.  I love these smiling shrimps!
I hope you're having fun with your summer. Are you getting any projects finished?

Thanks for coming...LittleDog would say hey but he's a little busy killing his new Beastie Ball!

A long weekend...

leading into a week of vacation is awesome.

I've been busy spinning and knitting this past week. I knit a sock and plied two skeins of yarn. The first skein was for a friend and has moved on to its new home...


This single was out of control! had to soak then wind onto the yarn stretcher...so it would dry into the 326 yds that it was supposed to be.



It had been on the bobbin for longer than I care to admit.

I'm happy to say that LittleDog survived the Explosives Holiday, although it was a bit dicey on Thursday night. We ended up having to hide in the corner of the bedroom with the TV as loud as we could stand. Two doses of anti-anxiety meds didn't have the intended effect. I guess the best thing I can say about the night is that he didn't die from a seizure or a heart attack...I truly hate the Explosives holiday.
Hope you all have a great week. Thanks for coming. See you again soon.
