I awoke to the most glorious weather. We really needed a break from the hideous humidity that makes life miserable. It was nice sleeping with the windows open and listening to all the noises that are unique to summer.
As you know I have been knitting steadily on a lace project which really has been a sort of therapy for me as I am really missing our cat Chloe. I needed a project that required all my attention and there were days a week or so ago that I suffered from a nasty summer cold and all I wanted to do was knit, so I did. The resulting scarf is gorgeous and of course I can’t wait to wear it. The pattern is Sierra Lupine by Rosemary (Romi) Hill and I used my light fingering weight yarn Yankee Pride in the Cornflower color way.
and the edging is just stunning. I just love the effect and the beads. This project really did ease my sorrow. Amazing what needles and some yarn can do.
Hard to believe that we are at the end of July and that I just ordered a new backpack for my son and LL Bean was out of quite a few colors already. Next week is actual school supply shopping, it really is the most wonderful time of the year. I love shopping for school supplies, always have. Any excuse to hit Staples!! I have a thing for Post-It Notes……
I hope that you are enjoying your summer. See you soon.
