We Now Resume Our Regularly Scheduled Programming

Summer is fading and I am eagerly anticipating a return to more productive knitting, spinning and designing.

This helps.

First day of middle school

First day back to elementary school

And even this helps:

That’s me!  I completed a triathlon last weekend and had been training  a bit.  It was a 1/2 miles swim, 12 mile bike and 3 mile run.  I had a goal in mind that I am happy to say I beat.  I did well enough that I really surprised myself and find my thoughts wandering to next summer’s triathlon.  If you have never done one, a sprint triathlon is very doable.  I encourage you to Give it a TRI!

And now, back to the needles!  I have a fall design I am finishing up and a sock that needs a mate.

What are you up to?

Hamster on the Wheel

That’s what I have felt like for the last few weeks.

Vacation was great.  The toy from vacation was indeed a kaleidoscope.  I envision a lot of fun with that little piece when choosing colors for projects in the future.  If I could find the card, I’d tell you more details.  But for now, suffice it to say, this one is made to allow photographs to be easily taken from the eye piece.   I got it a store at the Mashpee Commons dedicated entirely to kaleidoscopes…REALLY nice ones that are more art than toy!

On vacation my sister in law and I both sported Cotuit Sands Cowls on the beach.  I was photographing the Cotuit Collection on the beach but it was just a little chilly and the Kollage Yarns Riveting was just perfect!  (Pretty pair after a day at the beach, huh?)

And here is an actual finished project, another Cotuit Sands Cowl, infinity style.  It goes perfect with tie dye, huh?  (summer fun with the kids!!)

We start school in a week.  I am ready. You?
