back to the travelers

With 26 little woollen hats bundled up, wrapped and posted to Ireland, it was time to get back to my second Traveler's sock. Actually, laundry, gardening and grocery shopping first, then the sock. As you can see from the picture, things are proceeding at full speed and I'm about halfway to the heel.

Sunday I ripped out some Asiatic Lilies from the front garden. They were pretty when they bloomed, but for the last few years they've been infested by bugs - a tattered mess through the summer and fall. In the back yard, I ripped out a patch of Joe Pye Weed. I planted it to attract butterflies but it quickly got out of control. Maybe next year, I'll try some Columbines and Bee Balm.

Traveler is such a pretty sock. Isn't it a shame that chores get in the way of knitting sometimes.
