I feel like Pippi Short Stockings.

I'm unsure of the colourway of these socks, the yarn was purchased several years ago and the labels have since been lost. All I can remember is that it's Regia.

These socks are so fun and cheerful, I want to just wear them all the time, unfortunately it's getting warmer out, and what my feet really want is to go barefoot everywhere.
Ah well.

Needles used: size 1 (2.5mm) Addi Turbos 40" circulars.

is it autumn yet?

Well, my legs and back have definitely had enough of the summer already.
Yoga is helping, and once I get used to it, my body will get back in the groove and I'll have more energy.

So how is everything on the kitting front?
Slow.

I haven't had much energy or time.

Remember the Regia socks?

I went back to them; plain Jane knitting seems to be all I can handle after work most days.


The first week of May was mostly just cleaning the winters dust off of everything, and I had started another pair of socks.

These for my cousin, Tasha.
Hopefully I'll finish them before the summers over. I'm planning on making them thigh highs, I think the pattern will look cute; she has skinny little stick legs, and likes to wear short skirts a lot.

I want to knit some lace.

I know, I just said I hand no energy or concentration, and now I want to pick up something fiendishly complicated on tiny little needles?
Well...yeah.
What can I say, I'm nutz.

I really think I'm addicted to lace, that and like I said, once I get used to the work I should be able to cope better, I mean, I did manage to knit two lace shawls last summer too.
I'm thinking either this:

I haven't decided yet which one I want to do, perhaps both.

Saturday Sky

Would have posted this yesterday but our internet went down

Yesterday Bill and I went Geocaching and one of our chaches was at theTibbets point lighthouse, I couldn't resist the gorgeous sky.

Summer is nearly upon us

And with the advent of the warmer seasons I have returned to work. :(

I'm a cook, and the restaurant I work at is a seasonal place in a tourist town, it is only open from May to October, but it is usually quite busy that entire time. I very rarely get more than one day off a week, and some times I don't even get a day off for several weeks straight, and it can be very grueling work, especially in the heat of summer, kitchens have no AC.

What does that mean for this blog?
With the lack of knitting there probably won't be many posts around here for a while, I will post whenever possible, but don't expect as much as there has been.

Don't worry, the knitting excitement (such as there was) will return with October and my freedom, and also with the NY sheep and wool festival (YAY!)
