Summer is now here!  It's so good!  For that reason, I spend a lot more time outside, working around the house.  It also means a little less knitting, although I'm 10 rows from finishing my Damson!  It will be so pretty!

I better finish it soon because I received some beautiful yarn two weeks ago as part of the TFA Year in Color 2012 Club! It is wanting to become socks!  Probably these...  Maybe not the most practical socks with my wardrobe ;-) but they will be very cute!

Happy summer to all of you!

Looks like we are going to have a wonderful 3-day long weekend!  It will be good to finally spend more time outside!

Recently, I've won two contests in a row.  I know, I could not believe it!  The first prize I won is a very nice Namaste circular needle case from Un brin dans le vent.  It is a very practical (and pretty!) gift because I did not really have anything to order my circular needles.  Thank you very much Chantal!  You know how I like bright colors!

The second one is a great book by Vogue Knitting that I won over at a blog I've been following for a very long time now: A friend to knit with.   It really made my day!  Thank you again!

And of course, I'm still working on my Damson.  I'm at row 89 (out of 109).  Hopefully, I will finish it soon since I received the May shipment of the TFA Year in Color 2012 Club.  The color is really new to me!  I'll show you next time.  I received it on Wednesday.  I know some people haven't received their yarn and pattern yet.  I would not want to spoil their surprise ;-)

So, this is all the news for me. I'm so glad summer is starting.  I will try to spend as much time outside this weekend as possible.  And you?  What will you be doing this weekend!

Happy knitting everyone!
