The Tale of Three Patterns

Once upon a time there was a pretty pink variagated yarn.
It wanted to be socks, but it was a little bit *fluffy"
and by that I mean could stand to lose a little weight.

but that was chunky, bumpy and not very flattering.

but they were, oh I don't know......TOO VANILLA?

And as Goldilocks would say, "they were JUST right!"

Happy Half-Year

Well, here we are heading into the second half of 2015 already.

If you are anything like me, those New Year's Eve resolutions are long forgotten.

But, who says January 1 is the ONLY day for resolution and reflection.

July 1 works well too.

Let's recap.

1.  Early in the year I had to go on insulin for my diabetes.  While I don't enjoy the 6 times a day testing and the two shots ---- I DO feel better.  Even after 3 months, I'm not as settled into a routine as I'd like to be, but I'm getting there.

2.  Steve and I took a wonderful trip to Amelia Island where we tried kayaking for the first time.
"Like THIS, Dee.  You hafta put the paddle in the water!"

Creepy-cranky guy went with us and visited his old homestead.
As you can see.  He hated it.

3.  Only two pair of socks have been knit so far in 2015.  There were two little Dala horses stitched.  A little bit more was done on my blanket and a few projects have been started and abandoned (or trashed if I really hated them).

4.  And this:
We were adopted by this sweet guy.


So, what does the rest of 2015 look like?  Don't know yet.  I know there is a new pair of socks on the needles, a new cross stitch project started and there will probably be a LOT of time spent playing with Giroux and laughing at his silly antics.

The second half is looking pretty good so far!

Happy half year!
