Knitting! Plus some gardening, cocktails, and whatever else strikes my fancy.

Returning with Eye Candy

M and I went on a junket to visit my family in Wisconsin for the first week of August. We had a wonderful time. I thought I would get a lot of knitting done, but that was not the case. I worked on a WIP for M, and I started an entirely new sock for myself. I have single socks and partial socks all over the place, but we don’t have to discuss that right now.

I do have three FOs to post about and several WIPs. However, the Fall IK was in the mailbox when we returned. Tonight is a swatch. I must do it. The pattern won’t leave me alone. But you’ll have to wait to see what I am swatching (keep your fingers crossed that I get gauge!). Yes, I’m mean. I will say it’s a sweater. I hope the yarn I want to use will work (I can’t find the blog post of the yarn, so you’ll have to wait for that too I’m afraid). It was intended for a different sweater last Fall. But I’m 18 pounds and a couple inches smaller now, and the old sweater has six inches between sizes. What would have been generous ease before would be ridiculous now. So, it’s the Fall IK to the rescue!

It’s less than three weeks until my 1st Blogiversary! And I am nearing my 1000th comment. Contests are coming! Pictures of FOs are coming! WIPs and new projects are coming!

But I have to get my act together first.

In the meantime, here’s a little garden eye candy all the way from Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
