And as usual, I can't believe it's almost July! How did that happen?
First, I guess I finished Bressay in June. So here's a finished picture.
Once I finished Bressay, I moved on to a couple of other projects. First, I started some socks, because we went on vacation to Maine (of which more later). I'm still knitting the first sock, but here is as far as I got.
This is the Simple Sock 1 from the Simple Sock Collective by Melody Hoffman. I'm using the called for yarn, which includes a strand of mohair -- love the fuzziness!
Then once we were home again, I started a Navelli by Boyland Knitworks for my sweet girl child. She picked out the yarn colors herself from Purl Soho when I went down to the city for a day out with her. (Note the difference between the color work section and the top section. I blocked the color work section, so it looks much more smooth and plump and finished!)
I'm actually a bit farther along than this picture shows now. I can't wait to finish it and give it to her! I'm using Brooklyn Tweed Peerie. The pattern calls for a super wash yarn, which Peerie isn't. So I'm having to make small adjustments to the pattern as a result.
As mentioned above, we went to Maine on vacation in the beginning of June -- much earlier than our usual time. We went up with my sister and her family, plus my father and stepmother. The father type brought to our attention that it was the 20th anniversary of our first vacation up in Maine. That first time we were just with my sister's family. All the kids were tiny then! Sadly, the pictures from that trip aren't accessible, but I do have pictures from this trip.
And yes, the last couple of pictures show I did manage to get to a couple of yarn stores as well. I didn't get a picture of Clementine in Rockland, Maine, but I went there and also to the Cashmere Goat in Camden, Maine. Both lovely shops!
And here are some gratuitous Mia photos.
And just one more thing: WIMBLEDON!!!!! Yay! :D
