Blogging has been sporadic around the Harris Household this month. Due partly to the many social commitments I seem to have been involved with.  Lest you think I am extremely popular, these were mostly duty-type social engagements.  Cooking for 25 after a golf tourny.  A 90th birthday dinner three hours from home.  Time spent replacing the flooring in our basement that was destroyed in our spring flood.  Well, I didn't do much in the replacing department - just cooked and hosted son #2 who came for 4 days to help Fred. 

Then there was some fun time hanging out at Sis's cottage for a couple of days.  The weather was very wet and windy so we had to do some touristy shopping - and practise my selfies.

Add all those social commitments to the lack of knitting progress and there didn't seem to be enough 'news' to create a decent post. 

 I can't believe how long it has taken to knit one sleeve of my latest project.  Every night, despite a couple of hours of knitting, this sleeve has remained right here. 
No gain at all.  I think it has flesh eating disease of a knitting nature.  Knit two inches, go to bed.Those inches disappear and it is still the same length as it was the day before.  Marooned, I've been.  On sleeve island.  I think, though that I see shore ahead.

Okay I've been through your Rav project page and back again and can't identify the knit you're wearing in the shot with your sister! It looks glorious! What is it?

Sounds like a good month - and great selfie!

I feel your frustration. I'm also knitting a sleeve with the same disease. I hope it's not catching on my other projects but sleeves seem especially prone.
