The past few days have just slipped away. Because I’m not working this summer I’ve decided to dive headlong into the mom gig. I bake everyday, do laundry and have even tackled some big cleaning projects.
The baking is saving us money. Unfortunately, it isn’t conducive to shrinking my ever-expanding posterior.
Another pair of socks is finished and awaiting the next post office trip (later this week). I do enjoy the Eye of the Partridge Heel when using different colored yarn.
My latest sock project is using a coordinating heel and toe sock yarn in the Seasick colorway from Mama-E’s shop. I’m trying to find a way to “drip” or gradually bring the cuff color down into the main sock body to avoid an abrupt contrast between the pieces.
Yesterday I received a completely unexpected email. It seems that Susan over at KitKatKnit is determined that I not forget the indignity of another birthday. Thank you, Susan, I’ve already chosen and ordered some new roving. The folks living on the eastern Washington side of the Cascades Mountains are battling some nasty wildfires right now. I’m sending rainy, soggy thoughts your way!
