I feel like Sybill

 Remember the movie from years ago, Sybill about
a girl that had multiple personalities?  Well that's how
I feel this week about my knitting. I keep starting
projects, and then moving on to something else.
The craziness has to stop!

The socks are done...I really like them.
They are so nice and soft, yet sturdy.

I hope the tencil holds up.
I reinforced the cross your fingers.

Finished up Joe's worsted weight socks.
I would not normally pick such a bright color, and
in fact had to look when I got the yarn to make sure
they sent what I ordered.....but they did.
I have read about other people that got yarn from Knitpicks and
the color was off. Oh well...I'll see if he will model them for
next week.
I started a pair for him in Sportweight Opal.
Cast on 64 stitches..we'll see how it goes.
These are going to be top down. They looked
this red when I bought the yarn, but they are more pinky.

Decided my bosses wife needed a nice shawl
for Christmas. She does so much for so many people,
but I don't think anyone does much for  her.
Silverlight shawl pattern, in Wonderland Yarn.
Then, I was sitting here this morning and thought,
I should make Joe's sister a pair of socks for her 60th
birthday which is August 16th. I cannot knit that fast,
but maybe I can get one done. She has been asking me for
years to make her some socks.
Sybaritic pattern.
The way I'm going who knows that else I might start this week!

Ruth is almost done with her socks...she is hoping
she has enough yarn to finish..They are soooo nice!!
Martha did run out of yarn on her shawl.
She is going to try and get more from Green Mt  Spinnery.
I think the colors are very striking!
She started some socks till she gets the yarn figured out.

In other news:
Ruth made current jelly. She started last night and got
these two jars.... a lot of work for those little things.
I bet it will be very decadent
Joe went fishing today and caught a ton of fish!
Took him a few hours to clean them all.
These are 5 gallon buckets...!
 The flowers are still beautiful
The pool was beautiful today also.....
which was especially nice after a crappy weather week...

Have a great week dear blog time I write,
it will be August!

beautiful knits off the needles and on the needles. I have three projects that are long term (maybe four) I need a down and dirty quick one to feel accomplished.
