End of Summer

So, this weekend marks the end of summer. I can't believe how fast this summer has gone! Maybe that's because we have been working our butts off on the new house. I must admit, I am anxious for some cooler weather and Fall just happens to be my favorite time of year. Part of it is because of these guys:

Oh yes, I'm a die hard Redskins fan and the season is upon us. They were actually on TV last night so we toggled between the Democratic National Convention and watching the Redskins get beaten by Jacksonville. Badly. Just damn. BUT every year I remain optimistic that we will be seeing the Superbowl yet again. Sunday is the draft for our fantasy football team so we need to start getting prepared!

I did some dyeing yesterday and we are working on getting it skeined up right now. Mr. Man had a swift to yarn winder lesson this morning and is quickly learning some of the frustrations of working with lace!! Here's one of the colors - lace weight - called "Mermaid". I think it turned out pretty good!

Heather - those pictures are especially for YOU little Miss Impatient! :)

I see why so many yarn addicts drink now.....why would you want to knit with yarn the width of dental floss??? I will just stick to playing with clay and wood my dear Knit Witch. I love you!!!

Mermaid is a very apt name for that colorway. It makes me want to go swimming. :)

hey, you've definately gotten the hang of the dying, mermaid is beautiful! lol, a redskins fan , eh? We used to have a room mate years back who was a die hard red fan. We had fun as hubby is a seahawks fan, myself a packer (with deep feelings for patriots as well having grown up there). Yes, i love fall and as short as the summer has been i am also looking forward to it, almost!
Enjoy your holiday!
