Mood – Friday – Well summer is gone… boo hoo. August rains have hit. The Fireweed is blooming up to the end.

WIP - I’m still working on my Chutes and Ladder socks. I finished the 2 birthday scarves. I posted pictures. Snoopy’s sweater is done but I didn’t get a picture. I’m almost finished with one of the clogs. I had to take it to my LYS and talk to D. about the pattern. I was working the pattern correct. The top will take the right shape after it is felted. I turned the heel on one of the “Chutes and Ladders” sock. I plan on finishing this weekend. I bid on 2 different batches of yarn through E-Bay and they came in the mail the same day. They are beautiful. One is assorted black… mmmm cashmere, merino, ladders and other black yarns to make up 1#. The other batch was purples.. also yummy. I better contain myself …my stash is toooooo big.

What I’m Doing
– Next week is vacation Bible school/camp at church in the evenings. I’m co-teaching a knitting class for 8 - 12 year olds. It will be fun. We are going to make our own needles also. I’ve been looking for a good tutorial on line… We will see what happens. They are to bring sz 10 needles and yarn.

What Audio Books I’m Listening To - I finished “Mortal Prey” – was very good. Also listened to “War of Eagles” by Tom Clancy and “Dirty Work” by Stuart Woods while camping. It’s nice to sit by the fire, knit and listen to an audio book. I just finished “Nights of Rain and Stars” by Maeve Binchy and have started “Velocity” by Dean Koontz.

Weather - Considerable cloudiness with occasional rain showers. Winds W at 5 – 10 mph. Chance of rain- 50%. Currently 68 High today near 65 low 55.
