Phew, and they are done

 Phew, the socks are done and blocked...
on time!  I'm glad to have my life back...errr I mean
my knitting life...don't really like such deadlines
but it was self imposed...for Joe's sister's 60th birthday.
 See last week's post for more details on

Started a pair of sport weight socks...
and I decided I need to fix a few pair.

Somehow, Joe got a hole in the ribbing of these...
I  still had the yarn so all fixed now.

I found this website with a different way
to fix holes.
It seemed to work well.
This is the inside
Hopefully it will hold.

Started another pair...
There are quite a few that need fixin...but it's so
boring compared to knitting...LOL

Now I'm going to concentrate on  getting the purple sweater done.
I would like to wear it at Rhinebeck, but if not, I'm ok with it.

Ruth is coming along on her shawl (see last week's post for details)
I saw it in person yesterday. It is really really nice! 

Martha is coming along on her red "S" socks....
no picture this week.

The girls and I had breakfast yesterday. So nice to
catch up. Talked about Rhinebeck which is not that
far away...

In other news...
we had a nice summery dinner...

Have a great week....

Phew...blinked and the week was over!

 What a fast week, huh....
I worked furiously on the Sybaritic socks...and yea,
got the first one done.!
It helps that it's a shorter sock....I added 4 rows to the top, and 12
to the section right before heel...
I think it's 5.5" tall, I usually do 7-8 to use up yarn.

Love doing this pattern. I only worked on this all
week.  I think I might block the first one to see how it looks.
It's a size 8.5 and I'm a 7 so it is big on my foot in the picture.

Ruth is making this beautiful shawl. -
Walk on the Beach.
She is barely started. Yarn is Classic Yarns Cashsoft 4 ply. Merino,
microfiber, and cashmere. 
So far so pretty...!

Martha finished up her shawl.
Serenity Now! 
 She went to Green Mt Spinnery and got white to
finish the last 8 rows. Can you imagine how fun it would
be to just pop over to Green Mt Spinnery or WEBS whenever
you want to?????  Jealous!

I thought this was Ruth when I first saw this picture:

It is lovely don't you think!
Now I'll make you jealous...I get to see it in person
on Saturday!

Martha started a sock:
 These are Hourglass socks by Bev Eicerio published in Knitty.
 Yarn unknown....
very snazzy!

there isn't any..
have a great week dear blog readers.
