Happy 1st Day of Summer!

Do you know what that means?

76 more days until Notre Dame's opening game against San Diego St.

Fetchings

please excuse gratuitous Lil' Guy football photo, its one of my faves!

Summer of Socks '08 officially begins!

Spring Forward

I cast on a pair of Spring Forward socks! Its been 41 days since I last cast on a new sock....I was getting antsy! I'm using STR lightweight in Mist.


February Rocks

No worries. I have not abandoned my Lady. She's Rockin'!

What did the first day of summer mean for you?

Happy Summer

Aww...cute kid, great knitting...My first day of summer meant lots of yard and house work to get ready for our annual week at camp...with 130 Junior Highers! Off to the craziness tomorrow.

Happy Summer!! I hope you are having summer-like climate over there. It is absolutely pouring rain on this side of the pond!!!

Lovin' the "lady"! It is coming along beautifully. For me, the first day of summer was yet another wedding. 4 down, 1 to go!

Oooh Spring forward is looking good! And the Lady is lovely. =)

Aw sweet little fella! How did I sleep through signing up for Summer of Socks?! :) I can't wait for more of the February Sweater - it is coming up on my queue! Yours is gorgeous - love that color!

Rani said...

Hooray! New socks!

The sweater is looking mighty fine. Is it a fun knit? It really does look good!

PS. Summer day - in a moment of insanity I let my kids each pick a friend for a sleep over. One group is up this morning at 7:30 playing Star Wars and demanding breakfast. yawn. what was I thinking.

nice socks!

i spent the first half and first full day of summer in malls trying to find a dress for today. i hate shopping :(

I love the little FIghting Irish Helmet hat! Very cute.

I love how the sweater looks. I may have to copy you and make one. How many skeins did you get?

Disco said...

The Lady looks awesome. I love the colour and the pattern and everything. I hope you're trying it on as you go so you can get a great fit - gotta wear that one, it's so pretty.

And Mist. Gorgeous. How is the spring forward pattern? I need to get myself a sock on the needles. I'm put off because I wanted to knit Tommy the next pair of socks - the skein has been wound and sitting on the end table for weeks now!!!

The first day of summer is depressing. It means less light gained. I know that really doesn't apply here in the Lower 48, but living for 21 years in Alaska where it does...I just can't shake the feeling.

Glad to see we're not the only ones counting down to our teams football game too! ha ha!

Jes said...

omg ... I may fall over and die from the cuteness of that hat!

The Mist looks great in Spring Foward! Nice choice.

Love how the grown up Feb sweater is looking.

So does that mean that you have 76 days to knit Littly Guy another ND hat?

Lil' Guy pic - TOOO cute! I love his "helmet"!

Let's see, yesterday was the first day of summer? I spent most of it on the couch resting because I stayed up until 3am the night (morning?) before watching Meerkat Manor, which I'd never seen before. Then later I did some knitting and beat Hubster's ass at Scrabble. Ah, summer...

Zonda said...

Hehehe..he looks so cute in his hat!! Spring forward looks really pretty, trying to figure out what yarn to use for mine. The Lady is awesome!!! I'm thinking Grawk now for mine :) Enabler!!

Stacey said...

That Lady looks great!

laura said...

what a cute lil hat!!! and your socks truly look awesome. that pattern literally flies off the needles. i'm through with my heel already!!

Jo said...

I think it is so funny that you know exactly how many days it has been since you cast on for your previous paid of socks!

The first day of summer for me meant mad organizing so I could dog-sit Caddie (an elderly chocolate lab).

jmcmjoan said...

Your sweater is coming along nicely...I can hardly wait to see it completed! hugs, Joan

tiennie said...

Your projects are looking good! Love the color of the sweater!

Janet Richards said...

I love, love, luv the sweater! I have that pattern, but I love the color you chose. Can't wait to see how it progresses!

cockeyed said...

...don't you just love college football season? lil' guy is sure a cutie! Can't wait till your sweater is done, it's beautiful!!

tapmouse said...

OMG! Your Lady is not just Rockin', she is looking oh-so-Divine!!! Awesome! And thanks for sharing the new Lil' Guy pic-cuz he is adorable as ever!

Marie said...

I love lil guy's hat! Did you make it?
My first day of summer involved more gardening and my 1st strawberry. It was wonderful.

Sam said...

I've been obsessed with that sweater, but kept telling myself no new sweater yarn. I can't believe I didn't think of the STR my stash! Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Yours is spectacular!
