Nothing much exciting here – got one sock done up to the end of the increases, almost there with the second. Then I can knit away for a bit!
Well, Shark Week 2020 has set sail without me. We don’t have cable, and the season is not for sale on Amazon, which is how we have watched it the last several years. Apparently it is available on several streaming services, but none that were practical for us to access. But that is OK! We… Continue reading My Own Private Shark Week

So that is what I’m doing. I’m doing my usual plain vanilla toe-up socks, but to his measurements and in plain… Continue reading Sock It To Me Monday: Black Hole Socks
Making decent progress on my Shelly Summer Top! I’m almost, but not quite, halfway done with the first side. It is a pretty easy knit – it’s just one of the variants of Feather and Fan, otherwise known as Old Shale, so it’s pretty straightforward. As you can probably see, the yarn is pooling a… Continue reading Shelly Top Update
The flowers are continuing to bloom – hoping we can keep them going until fall! And that’s how my garden grows 🙂
