Look! I’ve been knitting!

I haven’t gotten very far with this pair yet because I just don’t seem to have half the knitting time that I think I should. This work thing seriously cuts into my knitting and social life. Seriously. It’s a pity that it seems to be so necessary, eh?

This is Stitchjones Supersock in Andes Mints. Yum! This is a smooshy soft 100% superwash merino yarn that’s a joy to knit with. The color is a bit off in this picture. What looks blue-ish is really a lovely minty green. Be sure to go look at the other great colorways – color goes to 11, oh yes it does! Go on, and look. I’ll wait right here.

Stitchjones is available locally at Twisted and All About Yarn, or you can buy directly from her Etsy shop. I’m lucky enough to knit with the lovely Stitchjones proprietress, which is really convenient but rather hard on my pocketbook, if ya know what I mean.

Since I don’t have a lot of knitting pictures, I will distract treat you to some pictures of my garden.

The roses weren’t in bloom for Rose Festival this year because our spring has been so lousy, but they’re at the peak right now. This is Jude The Obscure. I wish that I could somehow hook up a virtual scratch-n-sniff so you could smell this rose. It’s amazing. The aroma drifts in through my open doors and windows, and my whole house smells of Jude.


This is Eyepaint. My camera struggles a lot with this red, even when taking pictures on an overcast day, as this was. But it really is bright! I love looking out and seeing all of the red and white flowers dancing in the breezes. The reverse of the petals is white, so they look like they’re blinking. Thus the name, I suppose.

#1 Son called from Germany, and again last night from Barcelona. They are apparently doing very well with this tour and he’s having the time of his life.
