Still Summer...

I know I said it was "Time For Socks" but the weather thinks otherwise - it's actually rather lovely still.  There's a chill in the mornings, though, so I know the socks will be in use soon...

They did get finished:

 And I have some other knitting to show you, too, but first... we have two new family members.

This is Lucas, he's a red eared slider, and he's just living with us for a year while his Momma is in a dorm room.  Next year, when she's out of dorms, Lucas will go home.  It took him almost a week to get brave enough to come out of the water onto his basking shelf, but he's confident now, and doesn't even leap off when he sees us approaching!
 See that little ceramic turtle at the back of the ramp?  Today Lucas learned how to throw it into the water!  :-)  How charming he is!

And this is Victoria, although she seems to mostly be 'Tory' these days - she is a beautiful little pale gray-brown gerbil, almost the exact color of MadelineTosh 'Whiskers' (my yarn friends will know what this means) and she is a peach - so friendly and fun!

I have some new knitting designs to share, but it's late, and I'm sleepy, so they'll have to wait...

Goodnight Moon!
