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.
Enjoy the yarn porn! Happy Knitting!
