One of the final assignments that we've been looking forward to is Market Day. Now, truthfully, my son is more of the outdoorsy active type, so having the opportunity to craft together is quite a treat for me. We decided on something simple and which used up materials that I already had on hand: assorted colors of embroidery threads, miniature wooden dowels, plastic beads & elastic cord. After a little brainstorming, we came up with Camp Necklaces. I remember making God's Eyes when I was his age during summer camps so it was fun teaching him how to wrap the threads around the sticks.

There has also been some (very slow) knitting happening. I finished my Spring vanilla socks (pictures & post coming soon) and started on a couple of new socks. The first one is a sweet pattern called Wildflowers & Honeycomb. Really enjoying this pattern and yarn combination.
Also decided to play around with designing a pair of summer socks with a new-to-me yarn from Kraemer Yarns called Saucon Sock. It's a neat blend of cotton/acrylic/nylon. Here's a close up of the stitch pattern that I am using:
Can't wait for things to slow down a bit so that I can get my knitting groove back. I'm also very behind on my blog reading/visiting. Hoping to get caught up on that soon too. Have a great rest of the week!
