Anyway, the weekend was a good one - we visited stepdaughters and wandered around the humid swamp that is Oklahoma City. Actually, that's just my bad mood talking - aside from the disturbing lack of anything more than 12 feet tall, it's a very lovely place. Lots of greenery, lots of trees and grass and flowers and birds, etc. I saw my first lightning bugs, which are completely freaking amazing. The Bug loved them and would have sat there in the damp grass for hours if I'd have let him. (I wasn't willing to sacrifice myself to the mosquitos.) I even got to sit on the porch swing and swing and knit all by myself, watching the birds and the breeze and the bugs, and it was everything I'd imagined. (Oldest SD lives in an oooolllldddd house with a beautiful yard, in a neighborhood full of old houses with even nicer yards than hers. You couldn't beat the view with a stick.)
Not a lot of knitting done, but what I did do was good - great yarn with a great pattern makes for soothing knitting. Sadly, no pictures.
I have so much on the needles right now that I feel like I need to make a schedule or I'll never get it all done. To that end:
|Tuesday:||blue Vermont socks or feet of argyles|
|Saturday:||shrek lace, argyles|
|Sunday:||shrek lace, blue Vermont socks|
(Anybody know why all the extra space appeared above and below my lil ol' table? Erm, nevermind, I figured it out.)
Now, I know that I am fickle enough that if you tell me I have to knit one thing, I'll want to knit anything but. So I make the caveat that I only have to finish one pattern repeat (or two inches of stockinette on sock feet) before I can pick what I want to knit. Most of these don't even have deadlines, but I feel at lose ends and can't seem to make progress on any of them, so I'm taking drastic measures. Maybe Lene would make me a spreadsheet...
And now, for your
You can't embiggen this one, sorry.
And this one, because I think it's completely adorable.
Embiggen all you want.
