Talking of races...

The big one kicks off today, July 5th, time for le Tour. In France the cyclists will be pumping the pedals and around the world 108 knitters will start the needles clicking. I am very excited to be participating in this super fun knitalong - for the maillot jaune - so it is also part of my Project Spectrum contribution. So needles at the ready it's time to say - go Team CSC!
My chosen project will be Verity - un chic et joli beret:

Would you like some help with that? Those sticks look good:

My Mum's dog Poppy thinks that knitting and blogging is dull compared to playing with her.

Thank you all for your lovely comments on my Rainforest socks, it was super satisfying to finish in time and feels great to read all your nice words :o)

Day two and I am already wondering if something smaller might not have made more sense, like your excellent choice. A cardigan in three weeks??? What was I thinking??

That's one cute puppy.

What a fun concept...and how very French to choose a beret. Can't wait to see it finished. And...you will model it I hope :)

Oh, no, I hope your pup gets over his fascination of your knitting goodies sooner than later. My Jake loved to carry balls of yarn around when I first got him. Thankfully, he has not decided that his bones are tastier.
