WON and Life

Whats on my needles

This hasn't changed much I'm still working on my test knit, I have had a few bumps in the road and dropped stitch that ran to far down. Had to start over. But right now I'm on the running end working up the leg I have three more pattern repeats and to the cuff and I'm done. Yea!!!!!
I am also working on Slippery Slope Socks by Chrissy Gardiner, it is a fun pattern and the yarn I'm using is by SockPixie, colorway Penette, 100% SW Merino.Its a great yarn to knit with.
Not much going on in the knitting front I know that I'm behind in my 52 pair plunge and need to step up the pace. I should be able to when I get this test knit done, they have taken longer then I thought they would.

The Garden is growing and I'm now having Bibbed lettuce and leaf lettuce, so it is coming along.Checked the Zucchini and the yellow squash and I have little one setting on. So I will be eating them soon. Green beans are in blossom, so in a couple of weeks I'll have more beans then I know what to do with.
The tomatoes, which I can't wait for are getting lots of green ones so they should be growing and ripening soon maybe sometime next month I will be in tomato heaven. To me vine ripen tomatoes taste nothing like the store bought ones. They have so much more flavor.

The Family is slowly arriving home, or arriving in Washington,
my whole family is scattered all over the United States. My brother is here now and is corrupting Chris, not that it is taking much to do that. But it is good to visit with him.
My sisters should be here this weekend and I will see them on Tuesday at the big dinner. Tony was going to cook it but he has to work his real job and guess who get the honor, right, me. The dinner is for 30+ people, Tony is going to do most of the prep for me so all I have to do is heat or cook the simple things. I'll let you know how it turns out.
Work has been busy, I know that it is vacation time, but I don't enjoy the long days 9.5 to 10 hour days is to long. Makes for a good paycheck but I lose out on knitting time. I'm just to tired to pick up the sticks. So I better go and pick up the sticks.
So till later keep your sticks aclickn'.
Happily knitting socks, Bye
