For the Love of Summer

I can hardly believe that it's August already. With August comes school registration but before that comes the doctor visit. Miss Mac will be turning 5 at the end of the month and I can't tell you how excited I am for her to start a new phase in her life, but also scared that SHE'S STARTING A NEW PHASE IN HER LIFE.

Miss Mac is now my hero. She took 3 shots and didn't shed a tear. We were walking out the doctors office and we heard a little boy screaming at the top of his lungs and without skipping a beat Miss Mac said "Such a baby".

As for my knitting this week, I started on the bodice for my Feary Ring. It's coming along great. I did some minor tweaks, but nothing to dramatic. The cables in this pattern are all twisting in the same direction. I figured I'd change it up a bit so that when the fronts come together they'll be symmetrical.

The Tapestry Cowl is coming along great. I love seeing the double image from the inside and outside. I'm about halfway through the pattern and with each stitch becoming a little more concerned about doing the kitchener stitch bind-off.

Oh I'm loving that cowl! You do great work with cables too. Today I saw rock formation/gem at the museum that I thought would translate beautifully as a cabled pattern.
