Rainy Days at the Lake...

are really just an excuse to relax! I left the shop in capable hands and went to Michigan for a few days to kick back. I did a lot of swinging and knitting on the porch since it was raining much of the time I was up there.

I finished a pair of Monkey socks. This is a lovely pattern available on knitty.com for free.

We rounded up the kids from our house and Hill's (and well, OK, yes the adults went too!) and we hit the Driftwood on Round Lake for some ice cream. This little shop has not changed since I was a kid...love that.

Old school...no soft serve here. And your sundays and splits come in glass not a paper cup.

A bunch of Harbins and Hills out for ice cream.

Another rainy day activity...painting rocks. Hey, gotta work with what you have at hand! I remember doing this as a kid too.

The sun finally came out so we were able to hang out in the lake. This is my sister and my cousin enjoying the day.
And finally, a little rainy day trouble!

Hey there stranger...
I haven't been by in a while, but have to tell you I love this latest post by you. I wish I could sell your socks in my shop. They are adorable and I love the patterns and colors you choose. They look so comfortable and soft. Anyhow, I've been working in my shop to get my own ideas flowing. I hope all is well with you.

Hugs, Penny Sue
