How Summer Flies.

You can see some happy butterflies!
I finally got the butterfly section to work on my summer flies. After frogging twice, I was ready to give up, but I gave it one more shot, putting more space between the first row of eyelets. It isn't perfect, but it's much better than before. The picture does not do this Candy Skein yarn justice. It's the June colorway, from my brother for my June birthday. Because my gauge is a bit different from the pattern's, I'm working additional butterfly and eyelet rows to make the most of my yarn. Besides, I *love* the butterflies, and I think that section showcases the yarn best. 

The weather has been cool; we're hoping it stays this way through my wedding next weekend. 

E's sister and family get into town sometime this weekend, and I expect I'll see a bit of them. Between moving and getting ready for the new school year and getting ready to get married, these next few weeks may be too busy for new yarn projects. With most of my stuff packed up, it'll be hard to start new projects anyway. I'm hoping being exclusive to one or two projects will help me finish them sooner. 

Linking up with Tami and Ginny!

My First free day

Yesterday, I said goodbye to my college job. That made today my first day off the job, which I spent mostly hanging out and relaxing. 

Mom and I picked blueberries, since the weather was lovely- cool and overcast, which changed into partly sunny, with a breeze. 

 
I followed that with awesome made-up Chinese food, some time working on my dresser, and then decided a Harry Potter marathon might be a fun idea. I move my computer, set up with my crochet project and went to town. 


Because I started so late in the day, I only made it through the first film. It was still a fun way to spend my afternoon, and I did get a few more rows on my blanket.
