Back to the Basics


Well, I finally got off my lazy behind and took a few pictures of my latest project. As I said before, this was a very basic knit, yet very satisfying. Blue Sky Organic Cotton is simply yummy. I have already used this wrap/shawl/rectangle to cover my shoulders while I took a ten minute nap in my favorite chair. I know, very old ladyish. I think that I might use this yarn again and again for the many baby presents that I need to knit. It comes in wonderful colors and knits up perfectly. I have heard that it sheds, but have not seen any evidence of that yet.



I can't believe it's the middle of August already. Of course, we didn't get to half the things on our list and the boys are now screaming boredom from every pore in their bodies. Here are a few pictures from the boring summer that they have been declaring that they are living....enjoy and oh yeah...that last picture of my husband...way too relaxed for not having a job! Thank goodness we received great news today and he will be dutifully employed come September 14th!
