What I Did On My Summer Vacation

I wish I had more to show.
But we've been busy
and the knitting mojo hasn't been seen this summer.
But, I did manage to knit two pairs of socks.

 Simple but warm.
They will keep my feet toasty when the snow starts to fly.

A simple 2 x 2 rib cuff
Cross Over Color
colorway   04531

 Another simple sock with a funky purl stitch thrown in.
The color is most true with the middle picture
These are a bit chunkier.
It will be interesting to see how they wear.

Spud and Chloe fine
size 2 needles
I have no idea where I found the pattern....yet alone, what I did with it since I knit these.
If I find it, the details will be on Ravelry.
I actually have a sweater on the needles now.
It's knit in bulky yarn and will be done in no time......i hope.

The Last Days of Summer

Hello from Upper Pond! I can't believe the summer is winding down.  We have had fun, fun, fun!
Highlights included:
Learning to sail...and winning at it
Sleep away camp
Hanging with friends and fishing
Driver's Ed
Driving the boat without a parent with them
And much quiet time for me as the boys are becoming quite independent!

Thinking of returning in the Fall. Not sure if it will be the same...I'm off to think about it some more.  Until then, those going back to school in the next few weeks, I hope it's a smooth transition. And to those that have a few more weeks left...soak it in for the daily grind will be here before we know it.
