getting there

I've been working on my Strathendrick by Kate Davies, slowly but surely.  And I'm finally finished with the color work and am working on the sleeves.  By the time July rolls around tomorrow, I'm hoping to be working on the neck ribbing and bottom ribbing.

ETA: I finished the second sleeve today!  Yay!





This is a fun project to work on.  I'm looking forward to being able to wear it!

June is our anniversary month -- 35 years married.  It's hard to believe it's been that long!  But I guess if you look at our picture from our marriage day, it's believable.  :D


Mia says hi.



Keep cool!  Here in the northeast, it's going to be way too hot for the next week.
