I actually have a FO to share. I started one of these on June 6 and actually made two of them by June 9. I used Rowan Calmer, one skein, in khaki. I acutally ran out of yarn for the second one and had to finish with a bit of leftover RC in coffee bean.

Unblocked -- I finished started and finished the first one while camping.

Yesterday I started the baby set (my own design) that was requested by a customer. She came into the store on Monday and said her daughter's shower is this Saturday! She's not due til September. However, she said if I can't get it finished not to worry. That's good cuz the boss's father is in his 80s and has pneumonia. He was taken by ambulance to the hospital early last Friday morning and spent a few days there. He lives with the bosses, and she doesn't like to leave him alone for very long. T is gone on a small vacation here and won't be back til tomorrow, so I have worked Monday, Tuesday, and today all day. That's almost as many hours as I usually work in two weeks! I'm glad for the extra money. It'll be a stretch to get the set finished, but I'll try. I also need to work in some housework time, too.

Lastly, I'll leave you with a picture of my first harvest from my garden. I had to thin out some of the radishes. They're really good! I planted the remainder of my seeds last night. (Yellow and green beans, cucumbers, and zucchini.) I think this weekend I'll get tomatoes to put in pots.

Happy knitting!

I won't be down on Saturday.
SIL had an emergency c-section this morning, and since then they have lost one of the girls. The other is not doing well.
Going to be sticking close to home.
