It should look better than this
Working a bit every day on the fair isle (or whatever it is) and it grows a teeny bit every day (note to self, next time you get a hankering, self, to do a sweater on size 2 needles rethink that hankering). I'm sure it will look great after a wash and a block but right now it is at the 'meh' stage.
We had a quiet (until 10pm) 4th, ending as most do with dogs in the bed freaking out. I spent a bit of time cleaning our patio off (dead leaves, weeds, etc) and getting the furniture in shape, and now we have a nice outdoor area for us. For some reason last year we didn't get the patio in usable condition, but now that's all done.
Hope your 4th was joyous!
