Here comes Summer

I'm currently working on a stranded design in Anne's shetland yarn, and I will show you sneak peeks soon, but the other day I started obsessing about my next sock design. Summer has to be full of colour, so, where do I go for colour. You guessed it, Lisa's sock yarn page.

Here they are in all their glory, I can't wait to start, hopefully in a couple of months. From left to right and starting at the top, we have Earth Birth & Sapphire, Emerald City & Watermelon, Berry Poppins & Pumpkin Gold.

Colour is what keeps me going, well, Chocolate does too though. Hmmm, I suppose there are a few things that keep me going. I'd say the 7 most important are (in order of preference):

1.Chocolate
2.Colour
3.Hot Chocolate (with 2 teaspoons of Mint syrup added, try it, it's really good)
4.A Challenging Design
5.Glazed Chocolate Donut (1 only)
6.Yarn (wool, wool blend, silk, all the good stuff)
7.Chocolate Chip Cookie(s)

No wonder I have to visit the gym 3 times a week...sigh...

I personally think there is a gene on the X chromosome that men are lacking that gives women the ability to appreciate the importance of chocolate. My naturopath (a man) says it's from a magnesium deficiency and that I should take more magnesium but honestly!--where is the fun in that??????? I'd much rather have chocolate.

Brenda, I know that 2007 will be a better year for you than 2006. Happy New Year!

Ohmigosh I love the colors! Can't wait to see what you do with them!

I have decided blogging is just like posting to FT, with pictures. It's easier than emailing your photos to 185 friends. I lift a hershey kiss to you!
