Summer is coming to a close :( BOOOOOOO.
My kids head back to school tomorrow. Dalton is headed to 7th grade, Garrett to 5th grade and Chase starts preschool on Monday. The schedule free days are over for a while.
We were happy to sneak in an extra beach day yesterday despite the HOT HUMID weather!
Mother Nature is a funny lady. We had the most beautiful weather this summer and then BAM she hits us with horrible humidity and heat yesterday. But today is already better.
I have been doing a ton of knitting. It's crunch time for the farm store.
I knit as much as I can to have things to sell for the fall and winter.
I also throw in a few fun personal knits every once in a while so knitting doesn't start to feel like work.
This knit is for an alpaca friend of ours. She co-owns one of the alpacas, Lily, with my parents.
My mom spun her beautiful fleece into chunky bumpy yarn and I'm knitting up a simple seed stitch cowl as a gift.
(this is Lily the alpaca making a silly face)
Chase asked me to take his picture. Ok.
Last morning before school starts...knitting outside
Knitting another pair of socks. And yes, if you have followed me at all you know I complained about making my first pair of socks. Well, I guess I need to eat my words because they are a fun thing to knit when you're on the go and don't want to carry around a pattern and lots of yarn.
So yes, knitting more socks. This time inspired by Manasquan blue and gray colors.
Reading, I Am Pilgrim.
This story terrifies me. It's so real and so scary and yet I keep reading. It's our book club book and some of the girls read it and insist I finish. So I have panic attacks and read through.
I LOVE knitting baby sweaters. It's officially my favorite thing to make.
This is a little sweater for my aunt's friend's grandbaby. She had asked me to knit a sweater so I made another one with this pattern.
