Two Peas(ys) in a Pod

I finished the second Peasy cardigan for Shannon.  It is every bit as lovely as the first and again, I am thrilled with it. Just delighted.  So with no further ado:

My friend is modeling it for me on the spur of the moment, so the colours aren’t great together, but I think it shows off the sweater beautifully!  I particularly love the neckline!  Very feminine and pretty!  Maybe not the best sweater for going back to school, but I am sure she will love it!!

Next up I am knitting a pair of socks for Miss Reese.  They are from the Blue Moon Fiber Arts Rockin’ Sock Club bi-monthly package.  The main yarn that came is this:

Not my favourite colours, but I may know someone who would like it!  And as a bonus, a skein of Sock Candy in the Robin’s Egg colourway.  I am using the Crosshatch Lace by Charlene Schurch pattern to make them a little feminine!


Now I ask you, isn’t that the cutest little thing? I just have the foot of the second sock and they will be finished.  Toddler size 10/11.

We are continuing to have the most amazing weather.  Sunny and warm, the humidity has gone and it is just great.  Even days when the weatherman calls for rain, we often don’t get it.  But of course, this morning, when I am off to Mahone Bay with my UK friend, it is raining.  But it is supposed to clear off at lunchtime!  Nobody can complain about our spring and summer this year!

Yes, we really can't complain about the weather -- well, not the rain. Maybe the humidity.

The sweater turned out great, and the wee socks are very girly! The new sock yarn isn't you, but I bet I know who you think will like it, lol.

The sweater is beautiful ! I agree with you about then neckline, it's very flattering .

The toddler socks are perfect ! I absolutely love that pattern and the colour is just so pretty. Nice job !

Our weather has been hot and sticky . We've been getting some pretty nasty thunderstorms and torrential rains . Still it IS summer so I won't complain too much . The kids will be going back to school before we know it ...
