It has been close to 100 degrees F way too many days for this Minnesotan - I'm ready for a good summer storm and some cooler temperatures! I did manage to spend Friday evening finding my flower beds under all those weeds. Saturday morning we went to the local Farmer's Market - then a Flea/Antique Show in town and then out to the lake for the weekend. It's much easier to stand the heat when you are floating in the lake with an icy lemonade. Now if only those sunnies would stop nibbling the parts hanging in the water! This is a shot at sunset from the middle of the lake. There was a nice breeze out there. I managed to complete 2 dishcloths this weekend - of course forgot to take pictures and they went home with my baby brother today. I also finished ready the copy of Mason-Dixon Knitting I got at the library this weekend. Definitely one book that will be added to my must have books list - along with the Yarn Harlot's Knitting Rules that I also have on loan from the library now.
I've finished the back and 5 inches of the front of my Last-Minute Stripes pullover in the 3-6 month size. It seems small to me but it's been a long time since I've held or seen a baby that size. Hopefully I'll get this version finished - and a girl version too before my newest niece or nephew arrives in November.
