Whole lotta knitting going on.

The beastly hot heat wave continues. What's a girl to do? Why, sit in front of the swamp cooler and knit!!

2nd purple yellow sock

I should have this pair of socks finished within the next couple of days. Yay!

Last month I knitted some squares for Grace. Cynthia (Grace's aunt) held a drawing for people who sent in squares.

I won this!

Won for Warming Grace

It's handspun, hand-dyed yarn from The Gabby Knitter. It's gorgeous. The skein is 330 yards, so my question is: what should I do with it?

Blogless MJ and I both love Crazy Monkey yarn. We also both have a lot of it! We've been coveting each other's stash and decided to have a swap. I came home with this:

Swapped with MJ

The dogs are the stars of this blog and frankly, it's going to their heads. So today, you get kitty pictures:

Here's Parker....


Here's Romeo....


Just as I was finishing up this post I looked out the window and saw this:

Storm at sunset

It looked the storm was going far north of here, so I left the bed linens out on the clothesline.

A few minutes later, it started pouring.

Looks like I'll be firing up the clothes dryer after all.

Your sock is really lovely! I love the colors!

"Yeah" on winning the yarn!

The Crazy Monkey Yarn is really nice too!

The cats are sweet.

I loved the picture of the calm before the storm!

Wow! Parker and my Trixie could be twins. Except I think Trixie is a little fatter. This picture doesn't show it, but it's the only one I have online at the moment.

Parker and Romeo are both so handsome! They definitely deserve equal airtime!

EEEEEP!! With that storm!! Not too much fun running out in the rain to pull clothes off the line!
