June and a full moon

I think there is a full moon tonight. I love a good moon view. Moonrising is my favorite view. Over Lake Michigan is especially good. Lately from the screened porch I can see the moon rising over my Linden tree; the sleepy cicadas do not fly past the moon, don't worry. We aren't at the Biblical stage where all light is obscured by clouds of insects. I wish I could make a little image of a huge cicada shadow flying by the moon. Hey Diddle diddle, the cat and the fiddle, the cicada jumped over the moon, etc. Do you have a favorite way to view the moon?

Anyhow, I digress.
The first beautiful sock is Irisheyes Lynn's. Al and I gave her some birthday yarn and she cast right on. (I am so happy she had to cast right on with it....) She is making the Embossed leaves socks from the Interweave Favorite Socks book. The yarn was named Teal, but we crossed it out and labeled it WICKED because it was Dorothy sky green. Okay well, I know the sky in Oz is in black and white, but imagine it that scary green color you see on the Weather Channel's Storm Chasers segments.

The second image is PRIZE yarn. Won by me! Thanks Lynn of href=""> . I hope that translates as a link on the post. Kim from has been trying to teach me links. Thanks KIM.

But yet again, I digress.

Lynn is moving and she had a yard sale. The letter B and the folk art chicken carving were not bought by anyone. So she had a 5000 comment contest and I won. Me. Kathy B. I won the b! (Not : I one a bee, like the old school counting game)

The B is going on my locker at work. My locker partner Anne B and I have shared the locker for years. She and I are both pretty messy. Best not to go lookin in our locker....But we often decorate the outside of the locker with photos. NOW it will have the B on it. Meant to B, don't you think.

The folk art chicken carving is so me. I love folk art. And polka dots. I must remember to keep the rubber chicken away from my lynn chicken. Rubber chicken is mean, you recall.

And, finally the yarn she sent as a bonus! What a bonus. It is wonderful superwash merino named Mare Blu. It is from Lulu's yarns and you can find her on

I think I need some fingerless JUST that colorway. Stormy BLUE.

To wrap this post all up:
let's sing: BLUE MOON.......
c'mon don't be a chicken.

Well thanks, now I am going to be singing Blue Moon all day. I love the sock yarn, it is very pretty and I think it will make a great pair of fingerless mitts

Love the blue yarn, very pretty! And the sock in progress is pretty too. And it is a full moon tonight, beware of the crazies!

Katherine said...

Wow that is a gorgeous blue! Now I won't be able to get it out of my mind, and will have to knit something in that precise blue.

Katherine said...

Hi Kathy, I couldn't find an email address for you, so I'm answering your question here. Hope you don't mind! Thanks for visiting the old blog, "Knitting Thoughts." As you know I am now "The Comfort Zone." Please visit me again at BTW I dreamed about that blue variegated yarn last night!

Both the B and the yarn look beautiful the way you photographed it. Did you know that in December we enjoy letters in chocolate? It is part of the Sinterklaas tradition (Santa Claus, but we usually celebrate on December 5)
