Current Knitting Progress......

I have been doing quite a bit of knitting this past week. I have 3 different things that I have been working a little here & there on.

First is the socks I started way back.........

The pattern is Belle epoque from 2 at a time socks, I'm using Lorna's Laces. I am almost done as you can see, how long it will take to finish?

Next, is the Slow-Bee Mystery KAL II. I just finished clue 1. I forgot to take some photos when I was taking the current ones, so none today....

Lastly, is the Slow-Bee Mystery KAL 1. I am up to clue 5, design 1. It is beginning to take a long time to do each row. I think the design is very nice, it will be huge when it's completed.

Summer is here finally in New York, so we have been going to the park down the street almost daily.......... The girls enjoy it and it makes the day go by without fighting & carrrying on.
Have a great day!

Is it summer yet???

We have had so much rain lately I can't say for sure if it is summer or not! Today it is cloudy but it has not rained yet, I say yet because we are going to have rain at some point today. My garden is getting sick of it too, the leaves on most of my plants are yellow, which means too much water. The twins are driving me nuts since we cannot get outside for any length of time, we can't go far from the house either since we have had some "pop-up" thunder storms.
I have been knitting every night after the girls go to bed. I am still working on the Slow-Bee mystery shawl, I'm up to clue 4. I have 4 more rows of it and I can start on the next one, I am 3 clues behind, not bad.
Slow-bee 2 started last Friday also, I have done the cast on, and started clue 1, but not much on that. I am using a terra cotta colored 100% silk yarn, from Colourmart, they wound it up to 4-ply for me and it's working really nice. I will post a couple photos of each when I get more done of the 2.

Slow-Bee Mystery KAL........

I joined this KAL way back when I was in school, thinking I would have the time to do it..........I just finished clue 1 last night. We are up to clue4, new clues come out on Fridays, so I am waaay behind. But, I figure since I just started knitting lace with this project, I am not doing too bad. It's just finding the time to do it, without interuption.

Here are some photos...........

I found out on Friday night at work, that a friend I have known for about 20 years, lost her 20 year old son. He was in a motorcycle crash, he died while in surgery- he was 20 years old, or young which ever you choose. He was too young. He was one of 6 children, a good boy, handsome & bright with a future. I am so sorry for Laura, she is a great person who did not deserve this. She has had so much greif in her life, she was married to a man who turned out to be a drug addict, he stole her life savings & had to raise those 6 kids alone. Her life should be better, she is a wonderful person who is always there for others.
I am going with her on Tuesday to pick out a headstone for Dom's grave.
Please say a prayer for Laura & her family that she can find peace in such a sad time.
