Catching up…..

Happy Summer!  That was one fast school year.  We have been in a horrible heat wave which makes me and everyone else miserable.  When the dew points are in the 70’s, it’s insufferable.  Right now we are having terrible thunderstorms.

I have been knitting and once again I knit the Rosemary (Romi) Hill Mystery Knit Along and she didn’t disappoint this year either.

I love the colors so much.  The lighter color is called Fairy Dust, a hint of pink and the darker shade is Sun Kissed Peach.  This MKAL started about a month after my Uncle passed and I needed something to hold on to, literally.  I knit like a woman possessed but it kept me sane.

At the end of May, I lost a dear friend who had been suffering for such a long time.  It’s been a rough spring.  I am thankful that I have knitting to lose myself in at times.

It’s not all sad.  A dear friend became a grandmother for the first time and I have been so excited for her and her family.  Nothing like a baby to make you happy.  You just can’t help yourself.  I asked the then to be grandmother if she would mind if I knitted something special for her daughters baby and she said absolutely.  This is the color combination I cooked up the other day.

I just love it! A one of a kind color way for a one of a kind little one.  I plan in casting on tomorrow.

I also just updated the shop with many new colors as well as out sumptuous new sport weight yarn, Yankee Schooner.  It’s a beautiful combination of 80% Merino, 10% Cashmere and 10% Nylon and comes in 250 yard skeins.  You can see them right here.

  1. wow – so much that is good, coming out of a hard time. Love the shawl! And the new baby yarn is bright and cheerful, as is the new yarn. I am glad you were able to hang on to something, and that things are looking a little better each day. It is so hard to lose the ones we love. Just no way around it , is there? Having something else to think about is a godsend.
