I'm in California!!!

Here's some pics from yesterday in Los Angeles and Santa Monica. I'll elaborate more once I get back home.

A Good Day

Actually, it's been a good weekend all over. I've finished 2 knitting projects and today I picked up my county fair submissions.

On Friday night I finished a chunky capelet (next summer I'll know better than to knit a chunky wool anything in July of all months).

Second, I finally finished my "June" socks on Saturday evening. These will be so cozy in my boots come winter.

Finally, I won 11 ribbons this year at the county fair for my knits and yarns.

I think I'm proudest of the socks, which are of my own design. My design won first place in socks, hand knit with purchased yarn (class 6).

Now for relaxing.

10 new stitch markers from the Sock Summit swap.

Yarn dyed with cherries from Amy's ornamental cherry tree (don't worry, they didn't taste good).

Snapshot from tonight's painting class.
