Lovely post, Andi, and glad you had a good weekend. Mindy Kaling is one of my favourite authors! This weekend I did some baking and went to the beach. I don’t knit but my Mum and Nan do. It’s so therapeutic to read these types of posts, thanks for sharing! :-) xx

I got a full four-day weekend for the fourth, and based on how much I napped through it, I desperately needed it! I've been having a crazy busy summer so far, so I've had little energy to do anything other than re-watch She-Ra and the Princesses of Power. Things should settle down in a week, though, and I have a list of books and shows to start!

I love your HP socks. ?The two colorways are fabulous together!
I usually like light reading in summer, but this year I am on a history tear, and I just can't stop reading about 20th century Europe!
I love Mindy on TV but could get not get through that book. I hope it resonates better with you!

Hi Andi, I’m knitting a pair of Hermoine’s every day socks using Knit Picks Gradient Chroma. You knitted a pair in that yarn some time ago, and I loved it so much I purchased the same colorway and knit a pair for myself. This new pair is for my wonderful daughter-law in a different colorway. I don’t like the colorway so much, but what an addictive, fabulous pattern! Glad you are back,
Cheers, Katyj47

Our Fourth was lazy as homebodies. And thankfully there weren't a lot of illegal fireworks that night + thankfully our kittens were fine in the house. Summer has been super busy since I've been chauffeuring the kids to and from their math classes. I'm so ready for a break and being able to not worry about time and to get my sewing machine out again.


I love your vanilla latte socks. The Vanilla Latte pattern. It is my vanilla sock pattern. We had a quiet but nice long weekend, finishing up with a potluck picnic with friends on Sunday evening. I am reading Spinning Silver - a retelling of Rumpelstiltskin fairy tale with some plucky heroines. I wouldn't have picked it up but it is a book club selection. It's a good summer read.


Very fun socks! I have not read the Mindy Kaling book, but imagine it's funny and entertaining - great summer reading.


O well, as long as one still has some clean undies, there shouldn't be a problem, right ? And clean socks, but those of course will have to be knitted first, so there's the perfect excuse ;-)
Those stripey socks are gorgeous !


Beautiful socks! The first ones are going to be wonderful for Fall. It seems like Fall is coming fast. I went to Wallmart and already see all the school supplies out.


Love both of your HP themed socks, especially the self-striping. I’ve been binging on Stranger Things and eating lots of ice cream because it’s so very hot here. Hope that you are having a great summer!


Love the colors of your socks! I own that book but have to still read it. I will add that to my next book to read as a fun Summer read. I am also working on knitting some socks, they are the perfect light project to carry around during the summer on trips.
Have a good weekend!
