Triskadecaphobia anyone?

Can you believe it is the middle of June already?
And Friday the 13th at that.
Time is flying and I have barely made a dent in my summer reading.
I think that is due in part to my Grammar class.
(My exam went okay yesterday, in case anyone is wondering, although I won't find out until Monday if my confidence in having done well is based in fact or not.)
Once that is finished on 3 July I will read like a fiend.
DN2 wants to go to Darien Lake and my thought is, gee, if we go, can I just sit in a chair by the wave pool and read or knit?
Speaking of knitting, I finished a sock last night.
Check it out:

Now I just have to knit the other one.
Can I say that I am slightly tired of this pattern.
Of course I make these socks a bit bigger so they'll fit more people than just me, so they are a bit baggy around the ankle. I do realize they are not slim-fitting summer socks and they will be used primarily when that cold winter wind blasts us once again.
I'm just anxious to get this pair done and move on to some other sock patterns.
I have been buying more sock yarn so I have two choices: either move my sock yarn to a larger container or knit socks faster.
In the meantime the recent rainfall has helped our grass to grow.
Perhaps I should get some sheep and take care of that problem:

I'll leave you with a picture of my new Lantern Moon knitting bag (40% off!):

Enjoy your weekend - and don't forget that tomorrow is the official Worldwide Knit in Public day!

Hi Julie, you've been busy accomplishing things, and I've been busy.....watching Russ do home improvements! I'm not jealous of your grammar class. I like grammar to a point. Fortunately high school teaching hasn't required me to know much beyond the eight parts of speech since kids pretend that they never learned them in fourth grade...or sixth get it.
