Still so hot! Just don't want to do anything except sit and have lots of water and iced tea. I have been getting knitting done though.
Finished my "BFF" socks from Cookie A.'s book "Knit.Sock.Love." which is also the name of the Ravelry group that I participated in for July.

I really liked the yarn and the pattern was nice and easy. A good way to ease into the book because some of the charts look scary! Getting ready to do a few more knitalongs starting tomorrow.

This is a scarf I finished for a Crystal Palace kal using one skein of Sausalito. Very pretty yarn. It's hard to tell but the lace pattern really stands out on the yarn. I lightly blocked it so it didn't lose any definition.

This is the yarn for the Solidsockknitters group and the theme for August is water. I am using Dirty Water Dye Works "Paula" and the pattern I picked is "Niagra" from "The Eclectic Sole" by Janet Laidman. I thought this was a good representative of water.

This is for the Carefree kal from Crystal Palace. The yarn is Panda Cotton and I'm using a pattern from "50 states, 50 socks" and the pattern is California.

Mmmmmm. Cookies. This are fabulous. They are oatmeal raisin cookies with a drizzle of icing (I made them purple!) and they are from the cookbook "Vegan Bake Sale". So far everything has been outstanding.

This is the best summertime salad. Kale rubbed with a little grapefruit juice and olive oil to wilt it a little and fresh sliced peaches. Doesn't sound like much but it's delicious.

Okay. I am trying to finish a short sleeved cardigan ....Helleborus from Knitscene Winter/Spring 2010 and I want to get some more done on it before tomorrow when it's time to cast on for my kals.

I'll have some pictures of the cardigan next time!

Stay cool and I'll see you all soon.
