see a pattern that you MUST knit...
even if you have much already on the needles?
I went to JKnits and innocently looked up a colorway from a skein of great sock yarn I received (noted in previous blog post). Then I saw it.
The Fall 2008 pattern for the Garter Diamond Sweater. It's a must knit for me. Now to seek and search if it's available yet...or if I must wait. :)

OH, and here's a photo of Sonja, the "guard chicken" who tries to keep the chipmunks away from "her" birdfeeder. Too funny. :) And, I have 10 tomato plants with nice fruit just growing and hopefully will be harvested when ripe, and before the "woodland creatures" find them!
One of the highlights at the lake:
Watching a mom and dad horned pout guarding their nest of fry (can you see them?)
Another highlight: 9 yo catching bullfrogs and sunnies.
I'm still plugging along on my Lace Hem Topping
Loopy Groupies with my latest purchase. I received as a surprise the following: a Loopy Ewe Red Project Tote, a skein of J.Knits sock yarn, & a Loopy Ewe keychain.
A Knitter's Holiday Swap box from SaucyMinx of Ravelry arrived! July is Ice Cream Month! I received: gorgeous hand-dyed lace weight yarn (interpretation of Ben and Jerry's Chubby Hubby flavor), equally gorgeous sock yarn in a beautiful dark cherry colorway (Cherry Garcia flavor), Trader Joe's Vanilla Wafers with Madagascar vanilla beans (Vanilla flavored ice cream with real vanilla bean specks). I also received 2 milk chocolate Dove bars, and a Dunkin Donuts coffee gift card. My pal hit the nail on the head with this wonderful swap box and her interpretations of my 3 favorite ice cream flavors was ingenious! Thank you, SaucyMinx!!!!
