summer knitting

Last Saturday I went to the DMV to renew my license. Naturally, I had to visit a yarn store in the area. I don't need any yarn! But, I was drawn in by the silky blue and green shades of this sock yarn, Tofutsies from SWTC. A friend has a birthday coming up in August and I think these will make a perfect gift.
Progress on my shrug is moving along but now that it's about two feet long I'm feeling the heat of summer more and more. Knitting with that much wool in my lap is not very comfortable and another good reason to knit a pair of socks.

So much of Los Angeles is kind of flat. In the summer even more so, this view from my back door is not very interesting but I like it because it feels so typical of my town.

Thanks for all the input on wrist injuries it was really helpful.

Aw, little foot! :) How do you like the Tofutsies? I haven't worked with it yet, but I'd like to try it.

What lovely refreshing colours....I'm imagining diving into an aqua ocean by a Greek Isle!! I'm with you on keeping the use of wooly yarns to a minimum at this time of the year!

I love your tile and pebble floors. I am not doing much in the way of knitting, but will be tiling and mosaic-ing (not a word or at least a real one) so my radar is up. Love your new banner.
