Summer Knitting!

You know, I should know better than to knit anything that requires an ounce of brain power when I am stressed and distracted. I was looking at my daughter's dress and I realized that I put the three needle bound shoulders on the OUTSIDE! Argh. Of course, I could rip it out, take out a few rows, and see if the dress fits her any better. Maybe when I get the energy... Of course, I love Janis' positive take on this--better too big than too small...

In the meantime I am just chugging along on my super easy swing top. I am so happy that I've joined the Summer knit along. Thinking about summer knits has revitalized my knitting. I really want to wear this top--it is made of Blue Sky Alpaca that is so amazingly soft! Amanda asked where I got the pattern from. I found the pattern at Jimmy Bean's Wool and it is indeed a Blue Sky Alpaca pattern. Just yummy!

The color is a little darker than this looks in the sunshine, but I don't really think you can see that the yarn is of two different dye lots in person. It does look striped in the picture, but you have to look really carefully. Must be the camera (she says...)

While I was at my LYS finding the final gift for my SP, I saw this cotton South West Trading Company Beyond on sale. Now, I am never one to turn down a sale, loved the green color and had this pattern in mind:

Cute and interesting! It is from the Spring 05 Knitter's Magazine. Check out the pretty green color.

And since I took a break from the office for an afternoon, I was able to do some shopping at my local shoestore. Look what they had!

Crocs! Aren't they the cutest, squishiest shoes! Perfect for the beech and for gardening. Love, love, love them (don't look at what a mess my office is...It was a tough week last week...)
