Last week I was amazed at the kindness of a fellow knitter. She is a regular at the knitting group I attend out at out LYS. She sent me and e-mail stating that she had some yarn that she didn't want anymore. She offered it to me free of charge, to knit something for the kids perhaps... Anyways the yarn is cascade 220 superwash. Which is awesome because I don't have to worry about hand washing, hand washing is not kid friendly, at least for me it isn't. I'm not sure what it will become but there are 5 balls equalling 1100 yds. Hopefully something will come to mind or I'll see something that pops out at me and says use that superwash! Thanks so much!!!
On a down side of things I started knitting the second sock of this kool-aid dyed yarn. I knit a good part into the foot and realised that it looked a bit bigger than the first one. I looked all over in my notes and knitting stuff to see if I ever wrote down the size of needles I knit the first sock with. I even looked back on my old blog posts. No such luck. I think I used 0's and was using 1's on the second one, so... a frogging I went. I managed to re knit the toe on 0's and one repeat of the lace pattern. It looks much better. The funny thing is I don't remember owning 0's back when I knit the first sock. Which was in January of 2006. Talk about a UFO. Its about time I finish these! Thanks Sock a Month 4 KAL! Way to get my needles in gear!
In Hogwarts business I'm trying to be patient while I wait for the sock yarn I ordered.... I did just order it last week Tuesday so hopefully it should be here soon. I really really want to start my pals' socks!
In the garden....
We must have over looked this.
Or it grew out of nowhere! Isn't it huge?! I guess its time to make some zucchini bread! That's about all those big ones are good for. That or stuffed zucchini, oh the decisions I have to make!
Usually we try to pick them while they don't have that big of a seed column.... I think its that time of summer that I have to check closely everyday to make sure things don't overgrow!
