So, with the Fair and the Ravelympics behind me, I'm knitting at a more sedate pace once again. This is Summer Flies, a lovely free pattern, in Dream in Color Smooshy in the colorway known as "Into the Mystic," which I think is the same exact shade as my hydrangeas. I'll be linking up to Ginny's yarn-along. Does anyone else see the humorous irony in knitting a lacy pastel shawl while reading a testosterone-driven thriller like Tom Clancy's Locked On? I don't know, when it comes down to it, I think I may be more of a Tom Clancy thriller girl than a lace shawl girl. It's been too long since I read one of his books. This one was published just last year and is uncannily true to the geo-political situation while still having the same fictional characters I first started reading about 15 years ago or more.
The only sewing I've done in the past week was yesterday, when I fired up the machine to mend Steve's jeans (at the knee) and Tertia's stretch jeans (at the fake pocket). I used the method I outlined in my tutorial on darning jeans, if you're interested. I usually link to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced, but this is kind of boring and there was NO other sewing to report. I need to get back to some quilting now.
