Lazy Saturday

Heat, humidity and summer storms are making for a lazy Saturday. Did get a photo of the latest garden bloom before the storm hit....

Have been working on the Lorna's Laces Flamingo yarn while catching up on knitting podcasts. Socks in the City is a new podcast for me, so I listened to the first 5 episodes this afternoon. Also caught up with Sticks and String. I just love David's voice.

Was going to watch the Cardinals game and continue knitting, but turns out the game started at noon instead of 3 as we thought. Did catch the last 2 innings and a winner for a change. So, I'll knit and catch up on HGTV. Maybe take a nap.

Love my lazy Saturdays when I don't have to be anywhere.

Soulard Angels do the Race for the Cure

Saturday was the St. Louis Race for the Cure and the Soulard Angels turned out to run (TC) and walk (everyone else). We were honoring our co-chairs, both survivors and some dear friends we have lost. The turnout in downtown St. Louis turned the streets pink. Here's our team photo in front of Joanie's.....

More pre-race photos are in the Soulard Angels link on the right.

The Soulard Angels had a fundraiser in June, the Lady Can Sing, for the Gateway to Hope Program. As soon as we get the final numbers I'll blog about the event and upload all the great photos.

Some progress being made on the Lorna's Laces Flamingo socks - turned the heel and working my way up the leg. Will have photos soon.

Where did the weekend go?

Flamingos Have Landed

It's been too long since I last blogged. The Flamingos have landed in the garden! Have taken several garden photos which are in the album on the right.Knitting has been slow. SO had surgery to repair a detached retina and I'm dealing with my 2nd bout of a springtime cold. So things haven't been much fun at Chez Counting Rows.

I've made progress on 2 knitting projects since May when I took these photos. Toe up socks, 2 on 2 circs - Lornas Laces Flamingo. Destined to be gift socks.

The Scrawl with Lornas Laces Helen's Lace for me.

I'm loving both projects and have a hard time deciding which one to work on.

Hope to update more often.

Til next time. Happy Knitting & Happy Summer!
