yarn and book summer

making sweaters is my new favorite. here is my second sweater. the pattern is from this magazine. it turned out a little big, so i think i would use a lighter yarn next time.

i just finished reading I Capture the Castle, which was also on my summer reading list. and i loved it very much.
and then i watched the movie last night while i ate some shortbread. that seemed english to me. i like pretty movies. and i like romola garai, who played cassandra. so there you go.

lindsi the duck and lindsi the person

these are my sister stacia's new little duckies in kentucky. their names are barb, feathers, and lindsi. i am so proud to be the namesake of a duckling!

also last night after church,we went over to leopold's for pistachio and butter pecan icecream. and then up on the parking garage where we shoved in the icecream as fast as we could before it melted.

i'm a sweater maker

over the weekend i made this sweater. i was a little bit intimidated because i don't have a lot of sweater crocheting experience, but it turned out! i really like it, and the pattern was really simple to follow. now i want to make a hundred more.

also last week was the three year anniversary of when we started dating. (those still count!) and we went to a baseball game, and ate lots of hot dogs, and it was fun.

3rd of july

tonight we went to the river to see some third of july fireworks across from us on whitemarsh island.
we ate some sour gummy bears while we waited for it to get dark.

i like to sneak picture mike.

and while the fireworks were going off, a dolphin swam right by us! it was kind of frightening being that close to such a big swimming animal. but it was right in the glow of the fireworks and everything. how picturesque.
but i also quick pulled up my legs from dangling off the edge of the dock.
