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!

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.

Whales!

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":

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!

I love the picture of you laying behind Ken. I was liking the picture of the whales and then squicked when I saw the jellyfish!

I call that hand holding squeezing their plumpers. Plumpers being cat paws of course.

Nice whale tales!
