Knitmas in July

I hope that July is a month of finishing. I have several WIPs at the moment that I would like to complete soon so that I can start Christmas knitting early. I only have two things this year so far, so not a huge daunting list, its entirely workable.

I dyed some yarn this weekend, it just finished drying a few hours ago and its 11pm now so no photos yet, hope to get some in sunlight tomorrow.

We have baby bunnies! I will also post some photos of them when they are acclimated ... they are stressed enough right now being taken away from their mom and home, don't want to scare them too much with a camera flash :o)

Started my second Nugatory sock today. Had to purchase another set of size 1 Knit Picks circulars so that I could knit 2 at a time on separate needles ... hope that helps alleviate second sock syndrome.

The hibiscus are blooming again .. funny thing plants, they want this life sustaining liquid called water ... like every day. These poor things were dehydrated all the time, I finally realized they like - literally - about a gallon of water each day that its hot and sunny. I have a two gallon watering can and split it between the two and they are so much happier now. Plants and I don't get along so well sometimes, I either kill them with kindness or neglect :o)

I can't believe how quickly Christmas is rushing up on us.

Can't wait to see what you are knitting for Christmas. Or ... will we have to wait until after the big day to see?
