Summertime, and the knitting’s been lazy. Not lazy like: lounging on an inflatable raft in a swimming pool. Lazy like: the raft has a cup holder.
I’m not proud of myself, but I did knit some furry flip-flops. They were so dang cute. (What I’m really ashamed of, though, is that I bought the pattern. Dur-ur! Knit a strip about the length of a flip-flop thong thingie, and about 2 inches wide. Repeat 3 more times (for the usual number of flip-flops). Tie on.)
These flip-flops were part of my pressie to Jen in the Rowan board’s Extremities Exchange, graciously hosted by Emma and Polly. The other part of my pressie did not exactly tax the ol’ knitting skills, neither. I give you:
The appeal here is the yarn (certainly not the big-ass garter stitch): Fiesta Yarn’s Rayon Boucle, which has a shimmer and a swing that cannot be captured on the KayCam. Sarong-like, or so I thought. Anyhoo, I hope Jen has some summery use for these whimsies.
It’s off to the stormy East End for me and mine. Happy end o’ summer knitting and tomato-eating, doll.
