Oops, I did it again

I signed up for another sock yarn club (I know, I know!)--Sock Yarnista by Three Irish Girls. Here's my first shipment, it's called Arctic Circle.

Here's a close-up of the stitch markers.

They're designed for dummies knitters like me who can't remember which side is SSK or K2tog when decreasing on socks. I had just found these at Girl on the Rocks a few days ago and was considering buying them. Love them!

My quilter friends had a birthday party for me in my friend Tece's magical garden. It was a lovely warm night to sit outside and visit with friends (and open presents!) The garden is huge and wraps around her house with lots of different mini-gardens and vignettes. Here's a little peek.

Summer is slipping away, so it was nice to be outside to enjoy it. I don't have any big plans for the Labor Day Weekend. Larry gets home tonight from his week golfing with his buddies, so we're just going to hang around and maybe golf a little. I hope you enjoy your long weekend!

I joined this the previous month. Aren't their yarns lovely? Next month will sadly be my last -- I'll have to enjoy yours from afar
