Hmm-m-m-m...

Chevrons August Sock WIP's
I got nuthin' - not even a shoe picture... A tummy bug has really cut into my knitting mojo. I've been working a little on my two Chevron Scarves, and a stitch here and there on my August socks. I've been reading more - always a chapter or so at night - but I'm halfway through "Whistling in the Dark" by Leslie Kagan and I can hardly put it down. It's been a long time since I've been so totally immersed in a book - the writing style puts you right there, I think I'll go and grab it when I'm finished my computer rounds :).

The Postman was kind this week, my Yarn Botanika arrived and some Twisted as well:

Take care and knit a few rows for me - maybe the yarny goodness above will speed my recovery :)...

Don't do socks but I'll put in a few rows on the scarves. Feel better Karin!!

I hope you're feeling better soon. I love the yarn goodies...especially the colors of the Twisted. I will have to find some! Take care.

I hope you feel better soon. I'd do a whole lot more knitting & reading if I could just get off the computer, lol.

so sorry you have a tummy bug..no fun..bleah! but beautiful yarn porn as always :) I picked up some 60% off Sockatta today along with some Tofutsies to head into holiday sock knitting. i got nada/nowhere/nuttin to show for my SockAMonth..i pulled the ones out of the basket but i have NO PAIRS...just lots of singles...sigh..very discouraging. oh well, i can look at your finished ones and dream of days to come...and there's still time to finish a pair this month...really...if i focus...not good at that these days.
