Multicolored

I cast on a pair of socks for June (I’m doing a pair a month this year, and am a little ahead) – this pair is a frankensock kind of thing; I’m using scraps in several colors. The yarns so far are coordinated but I will have to pull more scraps from the stash and there’s no telling what I’ll find.

In other news, my old umbrella broke and I took advantage of this unfortunate event to visit a super cute new store right on 1st and Pine near the Pike Place Market – Bella Umbrella (their website is geared towards rentals, the retail store has tons for sale). They have an awesome selection of good quality rain domes, and I had a hard time choosing. This one has lots of ribs to make it sturdier / more resistant to wind (though I don’t bother with an umbrella in the wind) and I like the bit of color.

About wonkydonkey

You want random? You got it. Mostly knitting and gardening, with some home improvements, pets, baking, family, and the occasional bad joke thrown in for good measure. This blog is mine; it is a place where I can insist upon proper grammar or break my own rules and degrade into slang on a whim. Either way, it's still mine. I love the Internet.
