final opam for june
Here are the finished socks from my last post. They only ended up taking me about a week and a half to complete. I'm about 5 inches into another pair. I had a Microsoft Roadshow presentation to go to for a full day 2 weeks ago. I debated with myself if it would be appropriate to knit while they were presenting. I decided that if I could do it discreetly I would give it a shot. The coworker I was with and I found seats not right at the front but still with a good view and knit while we were waiting for them to get started. I then looked a couple of rows back and there was another woman knitting mittens. I felt so much more comfortable about it. I actually find it easier to pay attention when my hands are busy and the presenters didn't seem to mind at all. I felt like I had accomplished a lot at the end of the day. I had some work questions cleared up in my mind and I had knit about 6 inches on my socks. I love multitasking.
Despite all the rain my garden is looking pretty good. It loved our mostly sunny Saturday this past weekend. Other people I know have had their entire gardens rot because it has been so wet. I think mine is saved by being raised. I have 1 of those Topsy Turvy planters on the far right in the tree. We only bought 1 because we didn't know how it would do. I planted a tomato in it and it is doing much better than the seedlings I planted in the garden from the same pack. If I had known how well they would do I would have bought a couple more.
