Golfing in Florida is often a chance to get close to nature. Last week mid backswing I heard a loud splash..I was near water. I mentioned it to the ambassador who said "probably an alligator." Luckily it was going into the water nearby not coming out. Saturday while look g for my husbands ball by a pond we saw these 2 lounging in the sun.

So my thumbs have been bothering me for a couple of weeks. The result of weather, repetitive motion, aging, etc. so I haven't been knitting as much...but I haven't quit completelly. My results in the same Same 5 day span using the same yarn, same stitch count,same knitter (me), the difference in gauge to put it mildly..huge. I will be ripping out the new sock until I can get comparable gauge.

I've never incorporated beads into my knitting. I should say successfully incorporated. I tried the dental floss threaders. But they didn't work for me inspire of some excellent online tutorials. So I bought a nifty looking thing called beadaid from a website of the same name. But I never used them. I loaned them out and friends used them with success. So I deided to give it a try with some lovely yarn that was a souvenir of a fun day trip with friends. And ya know what they work like a charm. I will no longer be reluctant to attempt patterns that call for beads. Or in this case, add them just because.

Finally finished a project, as opposed to just the knit and frog that's been my life lately.
Two yarns. Blue Herron and something called Silver. The picture doesn't do it justice. Both yarns have bits of sparkle and lovely drape. It has been gifted to a knitting friend.
And how fun are these shoes. I had some of those "bucks" stores give you for spending so much AND they were half off. So I didn't have to work to hard to justify buying them. Plus dh said they will be good to wear when we go to some upcoming concerts.
