Burgers, Buns and Grad Time-OMY!

Nat’s new job in the bakery went very well, she likes her new duties a LOT.  Hopefully she can get more hours as it gets busier and summer gears up and people are grilling out more. Burgers, Dogs and Buns will be flying!

We have to get her Grad pictures done this week, weather permitting- I need to get her announcements in the mail by next week as Graduation is coming up June 11 and we’re running out of time!!! Hopefully the weather will hold out and we can find a window of opportunity in the afternoons when she’s home-the weekends have not been optimal and keep getting cloudy when we need to be outside taking pictures. The Ornamental Crab out front is in full bloom, and I anticipate some pics with that. We have several other places to try and hit while the sun shines.


My First Socks, Day 4-5

Finally,  The Heel

After several attempts at turning the heel, The Sock is coming along smoothly-

We took Saturday afternoon off as work was caught up and looking forward to getting started on The Heel. I had all day Sunday to work on it too, and was able to tackle this new “turn of events” without any interruptions. I didn’t have to bake biscotti, although they are now depleted down to where I can see the bottom of the cookie jar, so baking is on the calendar for next Sunday.

I ripped the heel out 5 times before finally getting the turn centered and was then able to move on to the instep.

Not much to see of the instep yet, just my 3 needles all crossed over-I’ll post the foot when I get more added one, but the gusset is looking like the picture now 🙂
