This time, like all times, is a very good one, if we but know what to do with it. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
Finally, I have a finished project.
I’ve been knitting a pair of socks a month in 2010. However, I started these socks on Memorial Day and finished them a couple days ago. It’s been a busy summer and often it’s too hot to knit.
The yarn is Knit Picks Felici and I was happy with it. There were a few places where the yarn was white and a couple more where the color wasn’t saturated, but it’s cheap yarn so that’s okay. My other Knit Picks socks wear very well so I’m tolerant of color issues if the socks don’t fall apart.
More sock details and pictures are here.
I need to pick out yarn for my next pair of socks. I’ve been on a striped yarn kick lately, but I think I might want to break out of that.
I live near a school with a playground. A couple of weeks ago the school fenced in their playground. I was thrilled to see this because I finally have a spot near home where the dogs can run loose (our park is an hour from where we live and my yard is too small for the dogs to really run).
Sadie loves to run (while Luka sniffs every blade of grass).
Luka also likes to run.
Luka also likes to run down the slide (I’ve got to get a better picture of this – it’s hilarious).
Sadie’s favorite part is the soft grass.
I will never use the word “ladylike” to describe my dear Sadie.
I’m so grateful we now have this place so the dogs can run off leash more often than once a week. Running makes them happy. And that makes me happy.
