Hederas Finished!

The day-glo Hederas are completed! No changes to the pattern. Knit with hand-dyed merino bought on eBay. Started July 4, finished July 13. The pictures are actually quite accurate color-wise. I didn't think they'd turn out as well as they did.

We went camping this weekend, so I didn't get a lot of knitting done. I did make two cotton dishcloths for myself, but I didn't take any pictures. I also started a baby hat/sweater set (one of my own designs). I may list it on eBay. I haven't sold any on there for a long time. Not sure about that yet, though. Back to camping -- we bought a deck from the lot across and down from us a bit. Apparently the camper was repoed/re-pode/repo'd the other week. We lucked out that my nephew and two of his friends were there this weekend tenting, so they helped us move it. We wondered what we were going to do. It was in two pieces but still weighed a ton. It needs four 1x4" boards replaced, then I'll paint it. I took down my only set of icicle lights that still work and two sets of my net lights for the railing. We also got some cement blocks from the same site and bought seven more to go with them to build a fireplace around our firepit. It's slowly coming along. I have a list of other things I would like to have as well. What I don't get this year I'll get next year - I would imagine we'll keep this same lot for quite awhile.

I guess I've hit my limit for pictures today. I have more, but I will have to try another time. Blogger has crapped out on me. I'm surprised I got this many uploaded.

My Socks That Rock! is on its way! Got a, "Your items have been shipped" e-mail. Can't wait! Then I can start my rpms! I've also got to keep an eye out for some red sock yarn for Baudelaire. We have some at the store, but it's only 3ply, so I have to pass. Got lots to knit in the meantime! It's too hot now to wear knit socks, but I'll have lots to wear come the fall.

Happy knitting!

Amazing socks! No need for nightlites! :) I dig them, they'll be so cool peeking out of shoes when its finally cool enough to wear socks again.

The socks are awesome! And love the camp site. I miss the one my mom used to have.

Tip for blogger photo problems. I find that if I save my post as a draft, I can open it right back up and add more pics.
