Earlier in the week I painted my toenails while watching knitting podcasts and starting the second sleeve of Dennis' sweater. My nails looked terrible from the gravel and dirt roads at the lake and since I had my annual physical on Wedneday, I thought I should attempt to make them look a bit nicer. :-)
The front of the sweater is complete. Actually, the front, back and both sleeves are done. Tomorrow I'll work on putting it all together. It's supposed to rain all day so hopefully we'll be shut in the trailer and I can knit and we can watch movies. Fun!
I started a new sock too! Since this picture was taken I added another stripe and have the heel halfway turned. Don't you love this yarn? It's Knit Picks Felici yarn in the colorway "Dark Side". I just love it and the colors make me happy. I'm using the Yarn Harlot's, plain vanilla sock pattern and I'm very happy with how it shows off the yarn.
I also finished a baby blanket for a friend.
Dennis had today off, so we went out to breakfast and then headed out to the lake. After we dropped Chloe off at the trailer we kept heading north. We went through the little town of Chewelah. Then we went on to Colville and ate lunch at a fancy place called "McDonalds". Ha! Actually we like their ice tea very much so we bought a burger to go with the tea because it was 86 degrees and we were thirsty!
Isn't the scenery here gorgeous?
I couldn't capture the absolute beauty of the mountains all around us. And these photos were only a very few miles from our lake. We are so blessed with so much gorgeousness.
And then I found this. Crochet thread for $1 each. I bought several colors and was only charged 25 cents each.
Lots of yarn and knitting needles. I didn't succumb to the yarn fumes and left it there.
I also hope that you all have a lovely weekend and are enjoying the last of summer.
