I'm going to grow some flippers
It's unusual, Mid-June, to have this much rain around here.
Holly B, Tracy B and the Zombie Prom Date Knitters have a fun charity knitting project going on. If you're looking for a project, go on over and check it out. They're looking for 12" squares made from worsted weight washable wool in any shade of orange or green. Tracy lost her sister to cervical cancer and they are making a blanket in her honor to donate to the Hope Lodge. Go on...go check it out.
I decided I would make a square for them, I knew I had some bare superwash wool that I could dye green or orange so I got it out and made a swatch to figure out my gauge, then I started playing around with a pattern, before I knew it the square was done - and it is not green or orange. What a loser! I always do everything bass-ackwards. I guess I will pull my head out and do something that will cause it to be green today.
It looks like this right now, we'll see how it turns out.
Hasn't been a whole lot of knitting going on around here other than that.
Here's some things that I am thankful for today:
1. I am thankful for places like the Hope Lodge.
2. I am thankful that the high temperature in my area today is 79F/26C.
3. I am thankful that I live on a hill.
