Umm, well... I thought I should drop in for a quick update, just to let everyone know I'm still alive.

I have zero pictures of knitting to show, even though I have done some over the past month. I have to kitchener the toe of the first mega boots stretch sock and then start number two. I have only the cuff to finish on the second sock for a pair of footlets I'm making out of some of my hand dyed yarn. I'm halfway through ball 2 on a random baby blanket I'm making (with no recipient in mind yet). However, jamesey is languishing in the never ending ribbing section. I need to take it on the bus to knit, but there hasn't been as much bus riding lately, more biking and walking.

Work is getting busy again, and I expect the next month to be challenging. My boss is away, and there's lots of work coming up.

Other than that, soccer is going pretty well, but we rarely get many people out to practice. We'll see how many show tonight, given that its the hottest day of the summer so far. Also, I'm now learning how to play ultimate. Its fun, even if I don't really know what's going on!

Hope the socks are going well! I still haven't ventured into the world of sock knitting, but from what I understand once you fall in, it's VERY hard to get out :) And I have a ton of sock yarn too... Maybe my subconscious is trying to tell me something?

I love sock knitting! The perfect take-to-work-so-that-you-can-have-a-knitting-break-when-the-others-get-back-from-their-smoke-break break!

And beautiful vacation pictures!
