It's August 1!!!!!

And WIP Wrestlemania is over!!!! Last year I managed to contract a severe case of "finishitis" when I went on my WIP-finishing binge. No such luck this year. I did get one WIP done and made astounding progress on the Kimono Shawl, but enough is enough.

It's time for the new Porject of the Month bag........
and it's a knitted scarf in worsted weight yarn! Excellent--I needed a good portable project. Now I just need to decide what sort of pattern to use. I think I'll make it a cable or waffle pattern--something that could be considered "manly" as the "gift bin," like all the stores, has a whole bunch of gifts for women and one for men. So it's time for a nice "manly" scarf.

And, having already canned 4 quarts of pickles early this morning, I am devoting the rest of the day to crafting. Andy has gone on a motorcycle ride, we have no social engagements today, and no one is coming to visit.

Theo has nabbed the favorite morning kitty spot in the sewing room
and will probably hang out with me until it gets too hot and I have to close all the windows in favor of the air conditioner. He's a bit fickle sometimes.
