I survived the day at the golf tournament. We teed off under heavy showers, thanks to the sprinkler system.

Can you see the (more than a little damp) golfers?

One would think that the loud horn signaling the shotgun start would be a hint to turn the sprinklers OFF. Apparently not.

The cars weren’t allowed on the course this year, so RT got his picture taken with … a sign.

(picture of a) Shiny new car!

I had a pretty low-key day for the most part, but I was completely and totally shot when I got home last night. Being out in the heat all day really took it out of me. I fell asleep on the couch at about 9:45 last night and slept like a rock until almost 9 am this morning.

The good news about yesterday is the speedy progress on the Black Sock of Doom. I cast on for the second sock on Sunday night. I got almost the whole way through the foot and arch increases, needing just five rounds before the heel turn.

I got those five rounds knit while running errands with my mom this morning and it’s now past the heel turn and I’m doing the decreases for the heel “flap.” If that doesn’t make sense, well, it’s a Cat Bordhi pattern!

All black, all the time!

Oh, and I'm also quite literally one row away from running out of yarn. Good thing the extra yarn was in the mail when I got home yesterday. Thanks, Gourmet Yarn Company!

The strong desire to get these socks off of my needles has led me to put Sprout aside. But, that project is at the waist shaping and I’m nearly halfway into my second skein of Classy, so it is chugging along as well

We have sleeves! (sort of)

That’s it for my WiP Wednesday for this week. Hope your in-progress stuff is going just as well!

Did anybody get a hole in one?

Sprout looks great! I can't wait to see it done with those fab buttons on!

How many golfers got wet? It must have been tough in all that heat. I really want to try a Cat Bordhi sock. I need to order the book. Our local store can't keep it in stock.

I with Jenn. Did anyone win the car? :)

P.S. Nice WIPS. Love the blue yarn on sprout.
