Wrapping Up a Few Loose Ends

It's been hot and I've been tired, so I'm still just knitting up things that need to be finished. This week I finished a bath mat . . .

and a pair of slipper socks for Milo.

I'm still working on the fingerless gloves for the yarn store sample, but it isn't going well. I reversed the colors on the back of the hand.

Had to rip back 12 rows and start that part over.

Thanks go Grandma Gaye, the boys are all doing fine. They're enjoying their easy-going summer.
Vegetables are growing. We ate our first zucchini this weekend. There are some jack-o-lantern pumpkins growing. I don't know if we'll get any watermelon this year though. There is some corn growing--no tassels yet. That's fine. It's not tall enough yet. And there are some tomatoes, although they looked mighty parched the last time I looked at them. We're due for some rain this week, so hopefully that will help.

I need to finish that very bath mat!

What's stranger is that I thought that in a very squeal-ey "Ohmigaaa! I totally need to finish that same bath mat!!"

Is this a funtion of being an 80's child knitter or a HS Teacher?

Oh, ok. I thought you'd quit using words to blog. With the background also being black, the letters don't show up unless I highlight them w/ my cursor. *blush* I'm a dork.

Love the laundry sign. Love the save on the jam day. REALLY craving fry bread now. Thanks. :-) Sounds like you're finding such a nice groove in your little corner of the world. It's good stuff.
