I took my walk today and came home with a handful of wildflowers
Our yard is in full bloom and the hot sun makes the fragrance intoxicating
There hasn't been much time for blogging or knitting, although I do have so much to share. So, while the weather is whispering to me come outside and play, I'll only be blogging in bits and spurts.
The big news is our house has a new frock and she is quite happy to show it off
If you're local and in need of home painting or staining, we couldn't have been more pleased with Chris Valley and his crew at Valley Painting NW. It was a complete joy to have them give our home and fences a badly, badly needed face lift. They were here when they said they would be, were happily open to all input from us and completed the job without a hitch. Jason and I both can't stop walking around our property and smiling at how beautiful everything is.
I have been getting a little knitting done. Not much on Quill (it's too darn hot for worsted weight wool right now!) but I did start a baby blanket for a friend who is due in September with her first child, and of course, there's this project that goes everywhere with me lately
I've surely caught the sock bug! How could I not with as much encouragement as I've gotten from ravelers Jeff and Will, and Andi who just insisted on sharing some of her amazing stash with me and sent me this sock yarn in the mail
The colorway is Beachglass and as my daily walks take me to the waterfront, I can't stop thinking about this yarn and what it will become. thankyou thankyou thankyou!!
Ok ~ that's it for today. And Andi, I hope you're safe ~ I've been watching all the wildfire news and it's so frightening to see the loss of life that it's caused. I hope you are well, my friend.
