Week 24 - Our Summer is Beginning

It seems that our summer is beginning here in the Ozarks.  The temps are getting more and more toward normal, as well as the humidity rising.  By normal temps, I mean it is getting hotter and hotter every day.  Thank goodness we got the air conditioner replaced last would have been miserable this week if not for the a/c.

I was telling mom the other day that I counted how many sock pairs I have in progression right now and I was horrified to know that I have 6 pairs of socks on the needles....SIX!  I've never had that many pairs in the works...ever.  I can say I've had 2 pairs, but not 6.  I made the decision right then to work diligently to get those 6 pairs done, ASAP!  It would be great if I could get them done before I go into the hospital for my knee surgery - that's a little over 2 weeks away.  And most of the pairs already have one sock done.  So it's doable...I want to take a mindless pair of socks and a mindless shawl to knit while I'm in the hospital.  Wish me luck!

Row by Row starts on the 21st of June and goes thru September 7th this year.  I must say, there aren't a lot of rows that are calling to me this year.  That's probably a good thing.  I've not worked a lot on all the ones I have from 2014, 2015, and 2016 and it would be a shame to add to the already huge pile of UFO's. 

 I leave you with this cute picture of a kitty sitting pretty!
Gilligan always makes me smile!

Hello, Gilligan - you gorgeous feller! Six pairs of socks on the go is not bad, you must have more sock needles than I do, Sally......
