The cooler weather we have been having since the weekend is awesome. Now, if it would just rain. But, at least the clouds are progress.
I am getting ready to leave (very early Thursday morning) for NYC to visit Moogie. I have been having such a great summer, and am making progress on many of my projects. I know I won't be knitting much while I am there as Moogie has just about every minute planned with museums, walking tours, Broadway shows, Taste of Manhattan, etc. I need to plan for airplane knitting, and a bit of night time/hotel knitting (if I am not too exhausted). What will I bring?
Well, I have made great progress on the 3 pair of cabled socks I am knitting for my Herbology OWL. I finished the first of my own designs, 2 Pi R:
Bex by CookieA, in Periwinkle Sheep Watercolors Sock in Sunshine Yellow.
I have been knitting some socks for my brother. His feet are so swollen that he can't wear regular socks anymore and has asked me to knit him 4 pair.
I sent the first pair about 2 weeks ago.
Anyway, he liked the fit, except that he wants them taller in the legs. I made the legs only 5 in. tall because I thought he might like shorter socks for summer. No. He wants the full length.
I have started a second pair.
The last bit of progress to report on is the new window we are putting in our bedroom. Ok, by WE, I mean our contractor, Zim. As many of you know, we had no window to our bedroom because we had French doors to the deck instead. These were lovely, but since we couldn't leave them open at night (hello raccoons!), we have been sweltering in the record breaking heat the Pacific Northwest has been experiencing this summer. We decided to take out the doors, put in smaller doors and a window that can open and give us what ever breeze is coming off the lake.
Here is what the doors used to look like:
