finished and ready for wear. I do love the Fiesta Baby Boom Yarn. One hundred percent extrafine merino superwash – what more could a gal ask for. I weighed both pair and found that the Summer Sox used 97 grams of yarn while the ToeUp for Ron took 67 grams. A big difference.
Not certain what I’ll knit next as far as sox go. Probably Cat Bordhi’s Spring Thaw that have been on the needles forever. AND, there just might be another Stitch ‘n Bitch Fat Bottom Bag in the works.This is Summer Sox – I love ‘em.
Here are Ron’s socks – the yarn came with re-enforcing thread/yarn so I used it in the toes only.

about another Giveaway! This one involves bundles. Bundles of fabric and rose hip is doing the Giveaway. I’ve been reading Beata’s blog for some time now and enjoy following her posts.
Oh, yikes, I entered my comment twice to rose hip by a Big Mistake. .
I mailed Beata to ask her to delete one of my comments. Oh, dang.

is something that I enjoy doing. Haven’t done any in a number of months. Not since I taught a class at the lqs. However, this morning I was reading my favorite blogs and when I read The Some Times Crafter I just knew I had to do some paper piecing, too. The Some Times Crafter found this paper piecing pattern at Piece by Number. Anyway, here’s my Circle of Geese. Whaddaya think? How should I quilt?

This is what the humidity looked like driving down the Blvd., with our State Capitol in the center of the view.
Lucky for us the temp wasn’t high enough to make it miserable. Still, it does make the sky look ucky.
All in all our spring and summer has been the coolest in ages. No one ‘round here is complaining. We’ve been seeing the news reports about the newest wildfires in California and was relieved they weren’t close to Dorian’s area. They’ve had more than enough for a lifetime in their area.

and it was the smallest group in a long time. But what we lacked in attendance we made up for in lots o’ chatter. Seems like everyone’s been busy with their projects so A.M has lots of pics to post.
We discussed our next group project that will, this time, go to our local VA hospital. We’ll be using the guidelines their office sent so that our efforts will be useful to the vets. I’m certain by our deadlines we’ll have lots to show for our efforts.
This month’s KAL is at least on the needles. So far I’ve gotten as far as the ribbing on each of the two patterns for this month.
Have finished crocheting two projects but still have the finishing touches to complete before they’re completed. Perhaps I’ll get to that today.
Also, still have two new software to install so that I don’t have to grouch everytime I want to use a word processor or do family history. So will take time one day soon to get these installed.
Here it is, we’re into the second week of August - - - how time flies.
