Finished Object Wednesday

Woo-hoo! Turtlegirl socks!

Turtlegirl socks

Last summer Cristi sent me two skeins of Knitpicks socks yarn after I admired it in her Ravelry socks (multiple shades of green - what's not to like?!?!) - and so I christen these 'Turtlegirl Socks' - and I can't wait to wear them in the fall once it becomes sock weather once again. As lovely as these are, I can't imagine wearing socks right now - it is supposed to be in the high 90s this coming weekend. I think we are going to break down and turn on the airconditioner - we have held off this far. Bezzie is snickering at me, I know. I can take the cold but I just wilt in the heat.

Yesterday was Willow's last day of Kindergarten. This year... I don't know what to say - how did it get to be June? She has a few days of fun with her friends and then summer camp starts up on Monday. The Kindgarten classes had their big musical extravaganza on Monday, and I took this picture as the kids wove in and out of the audience doing this Rooster song:


I love how she just looks so happy - she is going to miss school. And yes, her hair does that all by itself.

Congrats on a finished item... question: you don't knit them =on= those frames, do you? You had a recent photo with one of them partway complete on the frame, and I was confused. --Cat

The socks are lovely - and how appropriate that they are on Turtledaddy blockers!

And good heavens that is one cute kid you've got!

Nice socks!! Willow is so pretty! Sigh I remember when Alexa's hair did that! Of course, I'm thinking Willow takes after you :)

Adorable, perfectly green Turtlegirl socks!! Break out that air conditioner...I would melt too!

Isn't it awesome to see Willow so happy at SCHOOL!!! I just love seeing that!! She is too cute for words :)

Very nice socks. Very TGlish!

Graduation is the 20th here. Oh man, I'm probably going to cry like a girl!

The socks look great. I always cherish the couple of cold, sock-wearing days here in FL.

Isn't it great that Willow loves school. My oldest is going to Kindergarten in a few months - can't wait, but also scared too - sending him into the big wide world for the first time. Preschool didn't count. Hope she has a great summer :0)

I love those socks. I'll never understand how sock yarns are dyed to make those patterns.

That's a great picture of Willow in action. She looks like she's having such a good time.

Great socks!
It's always so funny how ready the kids are for school to be over and one week into holidays, they're missing it!
