Summer Sock Syndrome

A funny think happened on the way to my second Mizzle.......
I decided to knit socks instead.  The pull of a pair of socks is strong especially with this Knitpicks sock yarn.  
My goodness it nearly bounces when you knit with it. It's Stroll Handpaint.  

I'm knitting a pattern from Al's Knitted SOCKS book.   

On the summer front:

We are having success with our hummingbird feeder and we are ridiculously thrilled about it. 
4 times since June 1 we have seen a female come to the feeder.  Last night we saw her drink from it. 

Beatles absolutely adores his cat tunnel out in the yard.   Fireman admitted, last night,  that when he saw it first, he thought it was a complete waste of money. He says he is amazed at how Beatles loves to be out in it.  (score one for me!)

I've lost track of how many days its been without a Coke.   We are close to the month mark. 
The hardest time I had was this weekend at 
graduation lunch at the SMOKEHOUSE in the city. 
I ordered a lemonade instead...

I'll leave you with this thought today: 
As if the series NORTH AMERICA wasn't perfect enough, Tom Selleck narrates it. 
I love me some Tom.

Kathy I love the whimsical move to socks. But I am still tinking and backing out and reknitting and forgetting where I am with the lace. I am determined my knitting pal. And North America ... now I know why I kept talking about Magnum PI this weekend, ha!

I'm sorry... did I drag you down the sock-road on the KnitPicks yarn? LOL! They will be lovely, indeed. Happy knitting on beautiful, bouncy yarn! I am SOOOO loving North America, and Tom's wonderful narration.

Not much knitting at my house, although I have 2 different pairs in progress. I am trying to finish hemming the binding on a HUGE quilt... but first I had to recover from a corneal erosion. Can't knit or sew with that going on! I'm better now, and hope to sew tonight.

Love, love, love Tom Selleck - I wish "they" would make Magnum PI with an older Magnum (Tom, of course) I think it would be a hoot to see how he might have changed, or not.

Ok I need pictures of said sock!!! AND also pictures of the outdoor tunnel. It might be something I'm willing to consider for my motley crew.....

Knit Picks sock yarn is highly addicting. I am a sucker for their kits. I'll buy anything that comes with a pattern.

Tom is sure nice to look at, too.
