Picture-Less Post

How dull, right?  Post with no pictures.
My knitting is at a stand still right least
the knitting I can talk about. Ready to turn heel on sock.
Started a sweater, but not enough done to write about.
Martha had an interesting thing happen with her
sweater collar...more about that next week.
Ruth was away so no pictures.

Very hot here. Hoping a jump in the icy pool
will help us sleep. A better post next week..promise!

Sweaters from the Girls

Ruth and Martha are dong great with their sweaters.

 Martha is working on the collar for Kelmscott Sweater.

 the collar is as complex as the body.

I think it looks heirloom quality!

Ruth is done decreasing for sweater sleeve.
Minetta by Kristen Kapur. Yarn is Valley Yarns Northfield.
It wont take her long to finish up the 2nd sleeve.

I might start a summer sweater soon....

believe it or not there is progess on the sock. 1/2" to go and
I can start the heel gussett.

It's very cold here today. 60's and sooo very windy. yuck.
The boys have been working outside ...they say its good
working weather.

Have a great week dear knitters.

Well here we are in June already! Yikes!
Tiffany is getting married in four months.

 I have about 3 more inches on Joey's sock before
I start the heel flap. I have a few big projects going on
that are taking a lot of time. I wish they were
knitting projects!

Ruth is moving right along on her sweater.
Yarn is Valley Yarns Northfield. Merino, alpaca, and silk. Color is grape. Pattern is Minetta by Kristin Kapur. 
 I love how its turning. She is going to do a little waist shaping for
a feminine look.

Martha has the collar figured out on her sweater.
She will be done in no time.  Love the details in this sweater.

In other news:

We had a birthday party for mom and Joe on Friday.
I can't believe I didn't get any pictures.  Well one...
check this out. 
Tiffany made a cheese board that was the hit of the party!
Everyone loved it! 

I would make it again in a minute, but it was very pricey.
Well worth it!

Have a great knitting week !
