Scenes from the Fair

The rain stopped just in time for the fun to start! Here is a shot of the Ferris Wheel in the evening light.

L waiting with friends for his turn on the YoYo. This ride was called The Flying Swings back in my day.

Here it is in motion, if you look carefully you can see the blur of swings.

Finding time to Knit

I have actually fit in knitting fairly regularly this summer. I squeeze it in at the end of the day. I have knit on several long car rides this summer. Paddy says that this is dangerous because if we had an accident and I was holding 5 pointy metal sticks...well you get the idea. I guess that is my way of living dangerously.

I am about to finish a pair of socks made of yarn purchased in Germany. I love how they are coming out. The colors are great as you can see and I wish you could feel them! They are wonderful. I am knitting them 2 at a time, a little trick I learned from my friend Mary Jane. That way you have 2 socks done at once not that disappointing feeling of having to start all over again as soon as you finish.

Mary Jane is full of knitting ideas, info & inspiration. I am not the only one who thinks so! She is interviewed in the latest issue of Interweave Knits and has just started her own website. Check her out @ http://maryjanemucklestone.com/

Enjoy the day.

I love when the purple cone flower is at this stage.

Early morning sun & fog. When I wake up and look out the window to see the light like this, I tend to jump up & run outside in my PJ's to snap a few pics.

At the Pond, with L and a few friends.

Ahhh...this is summer for me. This picture just sums it up!
