I came across this Ink It For Pink Sharpie challenge. The challenge was to use Sharpie products with a "pink theme" since it is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I decided to doodle up myself a pink ribbon and this is what I came up with. They are having a drawing each week until November 2nd. If you win, you get $1000.00 worth of Sharpie products for your school. I thought I'd give it a try.

The hibiscus plant I bought at the farmer's market this year is doing well. My husband had stained the arbor and fence that I planted it by and we really didn't know if it was going to survive. BUT as you can see, it is blooming flowers and has a lot more buds on it too. So I am very happy. I have another variety of hibiscus in a different part of the yard and has single petals with a bright yellow stamen in the center.

For SmallThings yarn-along today I'd like to share my socks!!! I just finished the toe yesterday morning and couldn't be happier with the way they turned out.
This is a nice pattern called So Simple sock that I found on Ravelry. It seemed to take forever to finish these, so I am very happy they are off the needles! I tried to take a close up of the cable running through them but I think the picture turned out a bit fuzzy. Alongside the cable on the leg part of the sock are ribs. On top of the foot the pattern follows through too. Kind of hard to tell in the photo, but they are there.
The yarn is from Knit Picks and I just love the warm autumn color! Reading Knitting Block by Block by Nicky Epstein. I've found a dinosaur scarf pattern that I'd like to make my youngest son for Christmas. Have to start this soon! Enjoy your day and head on over to see what everyone else is up to.

I have finished my BEACH BALL BLANKET/TABLE COVER!!! I am sooooo excited about it. I came up with the idea as I was floating around in the pool. The hubby and I rescued a wrought iron table and two chairs that someone in the neighborhood had kicked to the curb. They do need a coat of paint, BUT I knew I could come up with something before the bucket of paint arrived. My son and I were throwing the beach ball around when the AHA moment hit me for the table! BEACH BALL!!!!!! I made it in the same colors and used white for the clear parts. I even made a hole in the center piece so that if we decide to put an umbrella in the table, I can still use my cover! I added a shell edging and am just in love with how it turned out. The yarn is acrylic so that it can withstand the weather and washings! Oh happy day!
To view more great projects, join SmallThings yarn-along!! It's nice to see what others are working on. Started reading together with my youngest son: George's Secret Key to the Universe by Lucy and Stephen Hawking. Made it to chapter 4 and it seems like it's going to be an adventurous read.
Have a great Wednesday!!!
