The first day of summer has arrived. We survived the last year of elementary school and after 2 and a half months off, the Middle School experience will begin... (gulp!) The 5th grade promotion was damp! not rainy but a steady misting that left all the seats wet and most of us huddling under trees or umbrellas. He's growing up & moving on..... I can still remember his first day of school - Where does the time go?!
When did this little guy
Grow into this?! I blinked and 6 years flew by :(
He made it and we are very proud of him --- although, I'll be honest..not looking forward to those hormonal, moody teenage years ahead!
On to knitting!
Summer of socks???
Maybe not to wear... but definitely to knit! Socks are the perfect summer knitting project - small, portable & fun!
I signed up for Dancing Dog Dyeworks sock club and received my first installment of fantabulous summery sock yarn in Tropical Twist - a self-striping colorway!
and look at the goodies - sour watermelon sucker, Soak Wash sampler & a pretty sock/lace stitch marker from AG mode
I'm a sucker for self-striping and cast-on immediately. Plain vanilla cuff down w/afterthought heels and matchy-matchy stripes of course. ;P
Love those big thick stripes and tropical, summery colors! Another fantastic colorway from the fab Michelle (woolylove on Ravelry) the fiber artist behind Dancing Dog Dye Works~
Happy first day of summer~
