Ive always thought the sofa and chairs were a bit boring and overly neutral. I'm really glad now that they are since they can work well with any wall color and have a whole new look with bright accent pillows.
In the evenings Andy and I have been working on the patio. Andy finished the last section of the bottom wall on Monday. It's almost time to start filling in and building up the patio with dirt. I can't wait to sit out there this fall by the fire pit and roast some marshmallows!
In knitting news - I've been working on a new cowl pattern for fall, Oktoberfest. It's in Shalimar Yarns Breathless DK in the Copper Pennies colorway. I'm putting it out for test knitting this week. If you are interested PM me on Ravelry (SpinningLara). Oktoberfest is a quick knit and will be available in written and charted formats.
Walk The Line is with the test knitters and should be ready for release at the beginning of September. Andy is planning to do a photo shoot this weekend while we are in Yorktown. There are a lot of interesting backdrops there so we should be able to get some great shots. We are trying to find a new name for this pattern as another sock pattern was published last week with the same name. One of the test knitters suggested Hold The Line which I like. If you have a suggestion, I would love to hear it. If I use your suggestion I will send you a copy of the pattern when it's published.
