The most exciting thing happening around here is lots of knitting in my 'free' time.  These projects were finished in May, June, & July so far.

Hermione socks; Corkscrew mittens; generic for Oliver (Grant's are not pictured);
Twin Rib socks; another generic for Oliver

I have a pair of OSU-colored stripes to finish up today for Grant, and I only have a few inches of leg to go on these Darjeeling socks so I should finish them today too.

Darjeeling--fantastic pattern with lots going on and a great fit. 

In other news, I lost my job in early June and spend countless hours in the quest for a new, better, less stressful one.   I also joined the Y a couple of months ago and quit smoking finally, once and for all, last time, EVER.  And of course, the weather continues to keep me on edge and/or paralyze me; bring on Fall & Winter!

I allowed myself to be talked into buying a bushel of tomatoes, and I made salsa for the first time yesterday.  It was quite bland so I'm off to try again today with different peppers!

Take care!
