The long hot days of summer have a way of making one lazy. I still haven’t finished the Shark Bite socks I was so eager to start a month ago. I’ve completed one sock and I’m slogging my way through the other one. I’ve had to frog this project so many times I’ve seriously thought of giving it up; however, after spending $43 for the yarn, I just can’t. I’m sure they’ll be my favorites as soon as they’re done, but that seems like such a long way away.
In the interim, I’ve started on a scarf using the pooling technique. I’ve put that one off for awhile. I’d heard about how hard it was, but argyle plaid is one of my favorite designs, so…
But it’s not all work, work, work over here. I actually went to the races, something I’ve done only once before in my life. The actual racing itself doesn’t capture my attention, but as I went with a good friend whose son and grandchildren are involved, it took on a meaning. I had someone to root for rather than just watching some bikes race around a lap. The engine noise could be a bit loud, but all I had to do was pull out my hearing aids and we were rocking! LOL
All in all, we’re enjoying life here in Northern California. How about where you are?
See you in the funny pages!
