Sonja put this on her blog, and I read it, I decided it was time for me to do another KAL (knit a-long). The first one I ever did was with Wendy at Wendyknits. This is the Summer Mystery Shawl.

I feel as though I do nothing but knit, but after lots of thought on the subject, I've come to the conclusion that I do a lot of surfing on Ravelry, perusing knitting magazines and thinking about all the things I wish I could knit but just never get around to actually knitting because I spend so much time doing all of the above. Vicious cycle.
|Saroyan for the Baby Girl to take with her on her trip to Africa this year.|
|I think this cute little guy is some type of Warbler. It's so tiny! It comes to the feeder twice a day but we only see one at a time. My Grandmother and my Mom have always loved birdwatching. I thought it was for "old people." Well, I've been enjoying watching birds for about 25+ years now so I guess I was wrong, or I'm old. NOT!!!|
|This was a very fun, enjoyable, fast knit. After reading the Rainey Sisters blog on the Herbert Niebling Doily I thought I should try a simpler one and loved it. I've said before that my Great Grandmother crocheted with very thin crochet cotton, things like bedspreads, wedding bells on all our pillowcases she gave to her children, grandchildren, great grandchildren and I think I have her love for thread. I loved this project.The Queen's Lace, Piecework Magazine, Lace Special|
|The middle, or beginning, is the hardest part of the whole thing.|
|Uh, dropped a stitch, which turned into 5 stitches. Well, guess I'll fix it later.|
|Put a knitting needle into the 5 stitches to deal with later.|
|Love the middle but don't look too close. This was a fun knit but boring at times and there's a few mistakes.|
|This is the Insignia scarf by Cecily Glowick MacDonald. I'm doing it in Banana Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece. Kind of a relaxing knit since it's all garter stitch. I love garter stitch and will save this for the "Wedding Parties" camping trip next weekend. I'm looking forward to that, and as of right now all 3 of my kids and 2 of the grandkids will be there, along with lots of young, energetic friends of my daughters and her future husbands. I'll need knitting for 4 glorious days in the sun! Yeah!!!!|
|Carolina Wrens Not too old as they thought this was the nest and just laid there and rested. I took 10 pictures of these 2 cute little things.|
|This is a Beach bag from Lion Brand Yarn on Ravelry I started last night. I had the urge to crochet and had some crochet cotton (and might have bought a few colors to add to it.)|
|My new sock Jeck, free from Ravelry. My Sunshine holds my stitch markers. Isn't he cute?|
|And, the Nantucket basket my father made for me is just the right size to hold a skein of sock yarn so it doesn't roll on the floor and get covered in bright white pug hair!|
Back to knitting/Ravelry/NCIS - oh, that's my Knitting Show. I bought every season from the beginning and Gibbs and the gang keep me company while I knit, check out Ravelry or read a knitting magazine. Being a retired SAHM is kind of boring so I have to have company.............
