This is kind of a mini-series:
Honeydukes – a 3 year old chestnut filly by Birdstone out of Abound (by Smart Strike)
H K’s Merida – a dark bay 3 year old filly by Friesan Fire out of Truth and Nobility by Proud Truth.
And Songoficeandfire – a 4 year old bay filly by Dynaformer out of Catchascatchcan (GB) by Pursuit of Love (GB) came in second in her recent race.
One of the top Kentucky Oaks contenders is Dothraki Queen a bay filly by Pure Prize out of Sharaiji Blossom by Saint Ballado.

Apparently, this is an annual event. I hadn’t realized how long it has been since I last posted anything.
I am hoping to be more active here.
Particularly about my reading life. . . currently my knitting life is just frustrating me.
If I can find my sock needles – I am going to cast on some plain socks: that’s about the speed I can handle right now. . . but IF I can find my sock needles.
However, reading is regaining it’s precedence in my life. The library re-opened on the 18th – I have been there four times since then. My pile of TBR library books is huge and I still have three requests out there. So I am looking forward to settling down with many good books.

I read a blog called “Riviera Dogs” and the other day a picture of an I RWS named Maggie who lives in Monaco was posted:

I was searching through my boxes of yarn looking for the second skein of Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock in the Jay Pond colorway when I came upon a rather pretty unfinished shawl. I couldn’t for the life of me recall what pattern it was so I searched my projects on Rav. I briefly thought it might be Susan Pandorf’s Weathertop Scarf– you know, if I had made some pretty large errors that had somehow managed to still look good. . .
Figuring that I hadn’t actually added it to my projects, I searched my queue but didn’t see anything likely. So I did a pattern browse for scarves, in my library, with lace, knit on 4.5 mm needles. No luck. So I took out the “in my library” section and on page 3 I found it!
It’s “Wandering” by Ruth Greenwald. Started in August of 2011 when it was a mystery kal pattern for Zen Yarn Garden’s Light and Dark Club. I thought it was pretty brilliant to have found it rather quickly with so little information, but I just did a quick search in my projects and it is there. I couldn’t find it because nowhere in my project page do I actually call it a “scarf”. So Ravelry works great but in this case the user leaves much to be desired!

Wow. They went from JH to Master.

Found my glasses late last night.
When I told my friend Sandy about the lost glasses conumdrum she asked, “Did you check the bedclothes?”
And even though my first thought was “of course”, I did check them again.
I am happy to report that they weren’t in the bedclothes –actually they were in the space between the head of the bed and the wall. I had checked there before but that area is, unsurprisingly, full of project bags and yarn and I hadn’t checked carefully enough.
Anyway, my eyes are happier now and I can both knit and read.

Misplaced my glasses. Seriously. Had them on Wednesday – woke up Thursday and couldn’t find them. I have contacts but even with the cheaters it is difficult for me to do close up work in the contacts. Reading or knitting for example. I cannot believe that I still haven’t found them.
Otherwise the first Friday of summer hours has been uneeventful.

Made a box. Filled it with yarn and fiber.
I keep finding yarn in random places.
And I need more boxes for books.
Also, the clothing situation is out of control.
And I still don’t have a new place..,
