Things You Don't See Every Day
I think I can safely say that you don't see FOs on my blog every day, so here are a couple:
Bamboo Baby Sweater from One-Skein Wonders:
It's not in bamboo, however -- it's in Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece. I don't know if I feel the love for this yarn. It's splitty as hell, bleeds like a stuck pig, and it's heavy! But, I still have 1.5 skeins left over after making Hopeful, and this, so ZMrK will probably get a new hat sometime soon.
Also, my basketweave rib socks are done!
Gratuitous Ken shot:
I think I'll have FO #3 for August done soon, but it's a wash cloth so that's probably cheating.
Here are a few other things you don't see every day.
(We went on a whale watch last Sunday -- the full set of photos is here.)
Flower Hat Jellies (at the New England Aquarium):
Spotted salamanders (at Ponkapoag Pond/Blue Hills Reservation):
Spotted salamanders are really cool, and not terribly common to find. They're also fairly large, as sallies go. And we found this one about 10 miles from our house!
Let's close out with some yarn pr0n:
Laceweight Malabrigo in "Lettuce":
The latest offering from Mind's Eye Yarn's sock club:

Ken and me holding hands:
He does that -- he'll put his paw in or on my hand. So cute!
Hopefully I'll have a new FO at the end of the weekend!
