Summer socks

 Summer " beach "knitting has always been a favorite of mine.
 Something easy to bring along to the waters edge.
 As well something fun to read.
  Reading  Bird Cloud by Annie Proulx and well into the 3d chapter
not so crazy about it.
Mostly about how her French Canadian father did everything he could to become more of a Yankee.
Endless details about her building an extravagant house in Wyoming
I am giving it a few more chapters before I throw in the towel.
Knitting with my own hand dyed yarn a simple sock
oh, let me also say one more thing...
 Next week there will be some news on
Mountain Girl Yarns
 and a give away
 stay tuned


  1. I say throw in the towel, there are too many good books out there to keep hoping this one will get better.

    I love your socks and the yarn. Now you have my interest about next week, can't wait.

  2. I'm with Tracey....BUT...I'm glad you commented on it, because this is one author I've read in the past and sometimes like. (but this book doesn't sound like one I'm going to mess with!)

  8. Oh my, I love those socks, and the yarn! Forget the book, start a new one :)

  9. Your yarn is so pretty and simple socks are perfect summer knitting.
