Summer Stuff

We did a lot of summer stuff this week.  Fourth of July we
were outside all day (in-between the rain drops)...boy did
we get a lot of rain...ugh!  Ruth and Martha got together
with family for a few days and did a ton of summery things

Pictures of the finished TTL Mystery Shawl:
Lots of pictures, because it took me a long time
to knit it and I have to have something to show for it!
June 1st to July 1st....

Tiffany was kind enough to model...

Two strands of malabrigo silkpaca lace held together...

This week I also finished up Tiff's first sock made from
Universal Bamboo Pop yarn.

My fun project for the week was working on a pair of fingerless mitts
for her friend Amber. Amber works at Farm Market on Thursday's and last
fall she froze, but said she needs her fingers to do stuff.

The color is really a dull gray, that is why I added the Tosh light in
maroony color (two strands held together). Gray yarn is Camel Hair, and the
reason I chose it for this project is because of the warmth.
60% Lana Merino Extrafine Wook/40% Camel.... The yarn is so so soft.
I have enough left for a hat.....I will add better pics next week.

Bind off is picot bindoff, same one I used on shawl above.

Notice how it curls? I'm hoping that straightens out after blocking but it may

Ruth is working on a dishrag....I love the pattern:
Spa Day Facecloth by Anne Mancine. Free on Ravelry. Yarn is Rowan
fine milk cotton that she bought on sale at a store near Martha's. it's knitting up nicely.

Joe/Joey prize tomato plant on the porch...the ones in the garden are not
so great....yet anyway...

The pool was wonderful this week. Back to work tomorrow, blah!
