I've cast on my October socks and have turned the heel on the first sock. I had to put it away for a while, because I've got a pattern for mittens, I promised to test knit.
This is the cuff of my Sockstravaganza socks by Kirsten Kapur from the book Brave New Knits.
Even though it was a cold, and rainy weekend, we managed to play outside, and I didn't forget to take the camera for once. I was playing with some settings, took over 100 photos, but kept about 50 of them, and even those didn't all turn out as well as I hoped for. Anyway, there are always some photos I like, even if they are not totally in focus etc.
Here's Maggie, with Happy growing out between her ears, waiting for me to throw the ball, what else.
Here you can see how much Denny enjoys playing nowadays.
One of the most beloved toys is this tattered rubber Frisbee. It's Happy's favorite for sure, but Maggie gets it away from him whenever she wants it. Sometimes all three of them tug at it. It still flys well too, even with the big hole in the middle.
Happy is avoiding a collision. I could not stop him from jumping into the pool though. Here he's wet, and on his way into a corner of the back yard, where he plays with the Frisbee by himself.
Here you can see his bum sticking out from his special corner. I tell you, every one of them has some weird thing going on. He just rubs the Frisbee into the dirt, and digs it out again, chews it, and slaps it around.
And here he's joining us again, to play some more.
I better get back to do some more test knitting.
