July Totals

Sock Summit was this month. It was hard but I came out with only one skein of yarn.

Knit/finished: 260 yards
Bought: 784 yards
Total gone for the month: -524

Total for the year: 2661 yards

What I bought

I was really good at Sock Summit. I bought one skein of yarn and some silk hankies. I didn't have a lot of time. I would like to have taken one of the short drop-in classes. Maybe next time. Its probably for the best that I didn't spend anymore time there. I could feel my resistance weakening the longer I was there.

I Was There!

This afternoon I made little cork boats for the kids. I had originally planned on letting them make the boats themselves but in the end they got to sail them. I followed this tutorial. Very quick and easy.

I did add string to two of the boats and the kids ended up dragging the boats around the backyard. I used skewers because I couldn't for the life of me find toothpicks in the store. I think the heavier mast works out well especially for the larger boats.

Now I just need to find a creek for the kids to sail these in. A mom in my knit group suggested taking them to any of the various fountains around town. Then the kids could walk in the water and pull the boats after them. Good idea.

One funny note. This is, as far as I can remember, my first time using a glue gun. How can that be?
