I can't believe June is almost over! I had so many projects planned for this summer's knitting, and I have so very little accomplished.

We are almost finished with the first month of The Amazing Lace. I have worked hard on Miss Melanie, but to no avail. I wrote a nasty post to my dear Mel in which I gave her a verbal flogging for her beligerent attitude. You will all be relieved to know I won't be posting that long-winded diatribe. Suffice it to say writing it all down made me feel better, but Miss Mel stands now as this:

Can you stand it? I've knit and frogged and knit and frogged repeatedly until the poor gossamer yarn can hardly take it anymore. You see here the results of my last frogging. I promise I'll get back to her soon, but for now she has been put in time-out for her surliness.

I have been knitting other stuff: a couple of "warsh-rags" from Mason-Dixon Knitting; Mountain Stream scarf (I'm into the 3rd repeat); and several socks. Here is some progress made on my Pomatomus socks:

This is a fun pattern knit with yummy yarn!

I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of the new 2006-2007 Stampin' Up catalog, a whole box of catalogs, actually. They should be arriving on my porch any day. I have been involved in several card swaps, which has taken away from my knitting time. Several scrapbook pages have been completed, as well. Therefore, I haven't been totally unproductive this month -- just on the knitting front. Hopefully, July will see more progress, together with another go at Mel, if she has learned to behave herself.
