First Day of Summer

And boy did we have a honey of a day:Mid 70's, no humidity, lovely breeze...ahh! We don't get many days like these!

Of course I had to work all day. At least my office has a window that I can open and look at the lake and somewhat enjoy the weather!

I've turned the heel on the first World Cup sock:
Germany won again and I'm pretty sure it's because I'm knitting these socks! I better make the project last until the end of the tournament (or until they lose) so I don't ruin the streak. Ha ha, can you tell I'm a total superstitous Red Sox fan??

I've got my kitty blankets all wrapped up and ready to ship, so I decided to swatch for a new project:
This is to make the Trellis cardigan for our neighbor's son. His 1st birthday is in September and our neighbors have become rather dear friends to us, so I thought it would be nice to knit them something. I should have it done in plenty of time. And miracle of miracles, I actually got gauge on the first try! I'm using Rowan All-Seasons Cotton from the stash in an off-white.

Happy summer and enjoy the long days while we have them! :)

Wasn't it an amazing day? We had great weather down here too. Congrats on getting guage the first try! Your Germany sock is looking great.

Haha. The socks are awesome. Actually when I first saw them the black looked blue to me and I thought Wow! Ecuador socks! My mom is from there, so I've been annoying everyone here by rooting for them instead :D

I can't wait to see how the Trellis sweater turns out. It's so itty bitty! Lovely summer pictures. I wonder what your UV factors are like compared to Honolulu. Go Germany!

Great picture and nice sock! I love those kind of clear days when the temperature is perfect and its just so sad when the sun goes down because there aren't too many like them.

What a beautiful day! Thanks for sharing that with us - and with me here in the Texas heat. No water here!
Great looking sock!

Looks like a beautiful day. And your swatch is so gorgeous, I can't even imagine how pretty the finished product will be!

I wanted to do World Cup socks but in Brazil's colors--hey, wait, my dye-o-rama yarn is perfect--can't believe that France won yesterday. I love the skates--pompoms are a must. Maybe I'll dig mine up, strap on a few pillows and give it a try. The cable swatch looks great.
