I have finally attended a wedding shower that wasn't my own :) Misty did a great job with the food and didn't make us play any silly games. It was a lovely, grown up time. I'm only sad this was my only semi-decent shot. I really need to work on my indoor, less than ideal light shots.

Ok, last picnic picture, I swear. It's hard to describe how much fun Little Bit had. She was visiting with all of the adults and children, playing with the balls and balloons, jumping on the trampoline, chasing the dog, looking at horses, mooching food. She was quite the center of attention.

More pics from the picnic... sorry. They had this fantastic, huge backyard. And at the very back of it were horses. Little Bit loved them, but I think they were bigger than she thought they should be. They were rather friendly and didn't seem to mind posing for the camera.

Perry & Brenda Lacy at the company picnic. We had a really good time. Surprisingly, for a work event, there wasn't much talk of work. At least for me. Of course, that may have been because I spent most of it chasing Little Bit around... :)

Your Autumn Test Results
You are a dynamic, vibrant person. You aren't afraid to pursue your passions.
When you are happiest, you are calm. You appreciate tradition and family. You enjoy feeling cozy.
You prefer change to come slowly. You need a long transition period when your life changes.
You find solitude to be the most comforting thing in the world. Being alone with your thoughts feels very peaceful.
Your ideal day is spent in contemplation. You enjoy a quiet day where you can take time to think and day dream.
You tend to live in the moment. You enjoy whatever is going on, and you don't obsess over the past or future.

Lace and decrease detail on flora. I loved the way this turned out. And it's just long enough that I think Little Bit will be able to wear it next year too.
Its done! Well, mostly. I just need to get some elastic thread and figure out what to do for straps. I'm thinking a sand stitch band will work well, and be consistent with the texture of the top.

Here is a better shot of the stitch pattern for my SKA September sockdown sock. I'm also going to write up a version of this without the purls. My mom is going to test knit it for me, so I can't wait to see it! This will be her first toe up sock. Should we tell her its hard to go back to top down after you take the plunge? :)
This has been an interesting experience, as I was figuring out what I liked and didn't like from my original stitch pattern. I'm really happy with what emerged, and you can really see each little bit of it in this colorway. I should finish this one tomorrow, then its back to the 2nd Shalimar. Can I finish 4 socks in one month?

So it took quite a while to figure out my PDF printing problems, but the pattern is now up in my Ravelry store.
Let me know if you're not a member, but would like a copy and I'll email it to you.
More patterns coming soon!
