Catching Up!

If this upcoming week flies by as fast as this past week did, well Sock Summit will be here before I know it! I leave next Saturday for some pre-summit fun with Christy!

But let me show you the yarn goodies I got on my visit with Woolgirl!


Madelinetosh Sock Yarn in Cove and Afternoon, and Yarn Love Marianne Dashwood in Warm Brick

Is it fall yet???

I think Lil' Guy is happy it is still summer! I spent yesterday and today with him!
"Auntie get wet?"

Lil' Guy Swimming!!!

I love this kid to bits! In case you guys didn't know! Even though I didn't get any knitting done yesterday, at least this morning I got some done (since I was up so early!!!!!).

berries in progress
I knit on my Blackberry Brambles in STR Mochaberry, listening to the waterful in my brother and SIL's backyard and cheering Lil' Guy on each time he jumped in the water! This much fun at 10:30am....

Puddles was quite happy!

Bailey, not so sure. hehehe, she was just tired from all the fun!

Oh, and if you survived all the photos so far, here's my favorite souvenir from last weekend in Portland that has been keeping me busy all week!!! Christy got me back into my swimming groove! I got new pink goggles and a black swimcap! Yes, not what you see favorite souvenir is now lost (wah!!! Christy...can we go get another please?!) but I had to quickly replace them to keep the swimming mojo going! The July Smackdown with knittinggolfer is still on...and we're close!!!

The weekend isn't over yet....Sunday....Purlescence Yarns with Weezalana!!! Yippee!!!!

Happy Knitting!

Those are cool names for yarn. Cove is my favorite.

What a darling little guy. That age is a lot of fun. Enjoy the little man.
