Who knows where this weekend will take us, by for now it is starting with me outside in the sun reading. Hubby is still asleep but it is warming up. They say this is the end of summer but I will only believe that when the temperature no longer resides in the 90's.

Less than four months

You know that you are surrounded with family that love hand knits when they remind you that there is less than four months, so that made me hit the knitting needles this weekend. I actually completed a hat.  That was good, now I am diving into the stash to see what else I can knit.
I loved this hat and hope the person who receives this will enjoy it as much as I did making it.

Socks completed!

Wow I am finally getting around to blogging about the socks I have completed. The blue ones just came off the needles yesterday. I started them in Oregon and so they are name for the cliffs at Depoe Bay.  So black and the water so blue.  The other pair of socks were completed on the trip.  I am debating if these will be Christmas socks or the first snow fall socks.  I think it will depend on how my knitting goes the next few weeks along with when and if we get snow.  Sometimes I think this summer is never going to end.

Mondays require coffee.

Mondays in the office especially during fall registration, means lots of coffee

Back to knitting

After a long absence due to a major infection, I am back to knitting. My husband can always tell if I am sick when I stop knitting. I came back from my trip to Oregon with a skin infection in my face. I looked like I had gone ten rounds with a prize fighter, without the bruising. I just thought I had a sinus infection. Who knew? After 10 days of really strong antibiotics, I am starting to feel better and my energy is slowly coming back.

I was inspired by the yarnharlot and knitted a washcloths. It is a present for me but more will follow for gifts this Christmas.
