Wow, August already.

Wow, it's been almost a month since I've posted.  I don't know that I can pinpoint exactly what I've been doing. Mainly a little bit of this and a little bit of that. I have not focused on one project, well except for maybe the office and unpacking boxes.  I've almost got my side of the room done and organized.  I will help DH with his side and then I can settle down in my knitting/spinning corner.  Getting to August lets me know that Fall is right around the corner and I'm ready for it. I don't know why I would complain about the heat because I'm not out in it that often. I leave my house during the week, get in my air-conditioned car. I walk up a little hill from the parking garage to my office (ok, this is in the heat for maybe 10 minutes), then I work in an air-conditioned office, I may go out at lunch, then back to the parking garage after work, then in my car and back in the house, all of which is air-conditioned.  So, it really shouldn't bother me that bad and this year........well, I'm just ready for fall, that's all.

I wore my wingspan twice, still trying to decide if I like it. I loved knitting it, truly lots of fun, but wearing it.......I don't know yet.  It probably needs to be a little bigger for it to lay around my neck right. It has caused me to stall on my lace wingspan, not sure that's what I want to make with that lovely Lana Grossa Lace Lux. That stuff is just divine! May have to frog it and do something else with it.

Other than finishing the Candy Corn and Licorice earlier in July, I haven't done any spinning. Partly because I had to put everything away to bring the boxes back into the office to unpack, but I could have fit some time to spin somewhere in there, surely! The Tour de France takes a lot of evening time to watch and I usually will knit during that. I have made good headway into my sock yarn squares blanket. I don't know how many squares I'm up to now, but I still have quite a ways to go. I've hardly watched any of the Olympics other than a little of Michael Phelps and his beautiful butterfly stroke.  I do like men's gymnastics and I may look for that event.

I made frog-eye salad today. How fun. I never knew it was done with pasta, I thought it was just the big ball tapioca. Now I know. :-)

OK, I'm going to spin for a little bit. I have this new fiber called French Quarter. Can't wait!

Frog-eye salad? I'm strangely intrigued and nauseated at the idea.
