Well, summer officially started on Saturday. It was a gorgeous day and I actually spent the afternoon outside.
Saturday (and also this past week) was also “World Wide Knit In Public Day”. My LYS got a group of us together and we sat outside the shop on Main Street and enjoyed the weather. I will freely admit that wearing a black shirt wasn’t the smartest idea I’ve had recently, but it was still a great time.

Said cast on later became 14 rows of ribbing and the start of the second sock of my Mottled Eggs pair.
I also took a big group photo (minus myself of course).
It was a great day, and I have one finished sock to show for it!
Then, today in the mail, my copy of Botanical Knits 2 came! I loved the first one, and I love the second one as well. And because I pre-ordered, I got a bonus pattern and a bookmark. 🙂
I’m hoping to finish the second of my Mottled Eggs sock soon, and then move on to the second pair I have on the needles. Now that I knit the pattern once though it should go quicker the second time. I’ve noticed that. Because now I know exactly what to expect and what I need to do. For me at least (as long as I cast it on right away) seems to go a lot quicker than the first.
Happy summer everyone!
