My July 1 Knitting

As per Heddy's contest, here's my July 1 knitting -- a started Sockapalooza sock while I had the camper to myself. I watched the concert that Prince William and Harry organized for their mother. I have about three inches done on this sock. I've set it aside for the moment to try and finish Dad's socks. I did get one done at the campground and have about thirty or more rows done on the second sock.
This is Belle Maman from A Stitch in Time. It's a nice pattern, easy to remember. It's the first time I've done a picot edge on a sock (knitted in as I went). It kinda flops over, but I think it will flatten out with blocking. It sorta looks like most sock patterns with this kind of cuff sorta have the floppy thing happening to some extent. Hope my Pal likes them!

This butterfly was on my doorstep when we were taking the stuff for camping out to the truck.

July 1, the boys with the tattoos that Heddy gave them, plus you can see one going on Daddy's arm. We were getting ready to go see the fireworks.

Our camper. My batteries were almost dead, so I couldn't get a really good picture. I have more lights to put out, but so far it's just old netlights around a tree in front of the truck, old icicle lights you can't see on the railing of the deck, and those big old multicolored lights on the deck railing. I have more of those to put up and some white patio lanterns.

That's about it to report. Not a whole bunch of knitting going on lately, but there's been some. I need a FO. Gettin' the itch! Looks like there will be more baby knitting in the future -- one of hubby's step-brothers and his girlfriend are expecting. It's the third for him, the first for her.
Today is the first day of Privateer Days, and it's windy and raining. Tomorrow doesn't look much better. Hope Saturday clears off some so the boys can get on some rides. By the looks of it there isn't much there anyways.
Happy knitting!

I'm loving the picot edge right now! It's a nice change, and pretty. :0) You guys have a nice camper, it must be a lot of fun!

Love the sock, and yarn looks yummy! And your camper looks divine! My mom used to have a spot at the local conservation club, but she gave it up after some of the new people started stealing from camp sites.

Talk to you later.

Love the bright butterfly and the little blips of blue in your pal's yarn!

The sock is coming along nicely.

We used to go camping at a trailer park when I was younger. I don't remember us putting up lights though...when we were really little my parents had a string of those plastic tiki lights they'd put up, but that's about it. When we got older they never put the lights up. Your place looks nice and festive!

Ack! I forgot to post pics of what I was working on July 1. I posted on Heddy's blog what I was going to work on, and I did work on it, but forgot to post about it.

Wow, your camper looks totally awesome! I'll have to show this pic to CM - he's dreaming of us buying a camper when we'll retire and touring through Europe with it then, and he'll particularly love this one - I do too! ;)
I'm looking forward to seeing your Belle Maman socks - I did the pattern a while ago and enjoyed it big time! Beautiful yarn too!
