One more time in June...

Dave and I have each finished a pair of socks in the last couple of days.

I knit these for a friend in California.

Dave knit these for a friend who's moving to Montreal.

Growing things...

Things are growing on the patio...

We are having very good growing weather - alternating rain and warm sunshine. This is the first cherry tomato to have set:

 And here is a progress photo on the first of the heirloom striped tomatoes. No stripes yet.

Socks are growing too:

This is the second one of the Orangey Goodness pair. The first one isn't finished yet, but I have to meter out the orange yarn so I'll knit this one to match and see where I get to. I should have enough of the yellow to do the toes... I hope, otherwise things may get interesting!

Baby shower

I just got home from a baby shower for two of my colleagues. Baby Saiya is beautiful, and she will look very stylish in her Baby Surprise and booties. The other baby is due in September, and s/he got the blue booties I made in the winter as well as this hat to match.

It's so fun to knit for babies, and especially nice when knitted gifts are opened before an audience of non-knitters, who can't believe it's possible to make such things!
