7 Things Meme

There's little blogworthy knitting to present today - working on socks tends to lead to that, doesn't it? Unless you're doing gorgeous, big, challenging Fair Isle ones, like Grumperina. I'm not. Mine have an inch or two more than they did yesterday. Ho-hum. Did some edge stitching on a handbag, too. Blocked the oh-so-boring scarf. Played with my diss chapter - not clear yet whether it helped. Blah. Have to do the dishes now.

So here's a pretty picture and a meme.

Something to keep us cool:
