Hot, Humid and a Chance of Knitting

It is hot and humid here in the mid-west, which did bring us some fantastic thunderstorms in the late evening last night and first thing this morning. I didn't want to drag myself out of bed and would much rather have stayed all cozy, listening to the thunder and catching glimpses of the lightning through my curtains, but unfortunately TDQ was a "good little daughter" and reminded me that I did, no matter how much I wanted to stay where I was, have to get up and go to work! I am not 100% convinced she had actually been to bed before telling me that it was time to "rock n' roll" already, but I digress.

This is, after all, a knitting blog and you don't come here to read about how tired I have been lately or any of my other complaints, you want to see the knitting stuff.

So I present :

Chart 3 of Back to the Garden.

Can't see much, can you?

I really need to put her on a longer circular needle, but that is a 40 inch one right there with those stitches crammed on it! I did create a longer one to work on TDQ's blanket, but it is still in use and anyhow those are not interchangeables , those are Addi Lace Turbo's. Side note here, I think that if I ever have a couple of hundred dollars not earmarked for something else I will get myself a set of the Addi Lace Clicks, and then some of these to go with them! Don't expect to see them appearing on my blog any time soon, but they are on my wish list. Which is a very long winded way of saying, until I finish the blanket for TDQ I am stuck using the 40 inch needles for BTTG.

I can give you a little bit of a closer look though.

The side project of Socks is calling my name, but I really do have to get something, anything, off my needles before I cast on. Even if I might have already wound some of my favorite sock yarn to knit them in!

Maybe next time I will have a finished object....
