I have a very few things to show. As all my long term blog followers know - I do a virtual knitting camp every summer with a shop in Colorado called The Loopy Ewe. It's my 8th or 9th year - so while I am tied up all summer knitting - I am also producing some great items for myself or for gifts, so that is a YAY! I also try and make it a rule if it fits with the shop requirements that I use new to me yarns. I have found some favorites by doing this and I have also found some I would not purchase again.
This month - I used a new to me yarn weight - the dyer Blue Moon is one I've used before in their 2 lighter weight yarns but I used their worsted weight for this baby afghan for a DF's first grand child.
the color is Coral Sky and it shows more vivid than it really is. It is a Tin Can Knits pattern called Waffles. Easy 4 row repeat and the size is easily adjustable. I have gifted it already and the grandmother was thrilled.
In late July we had Jennifer Riefenberg a national needlepoint teacher come and do a class for duClay Chapter our local EGA guild. The project was a counted canvas piece called Bloom. WHAT FUN!

Everyone says how hard to believe how fast time is going by. we'll wake up one day and it will be full on fall ! I have to say I'm always ready for fall. We have at least another couple of months of pool season depending on how much rainy windy weather we get in September. I know parents and grandparents are usually glad to see this time of the year coming to get the kiddos back in a routine of school.
thanks for coming by my blog and I appreciate your comments. Hope all your stitches are happy ones!
