Summer's Here

Wow, what a fast couple of months! Baseball has concluded and the kids are out of school for the summer. It seems that every year goes by quickly, but this one was particularly so.

Here's the latest:



A sampling of my yarns can now be found at The Spinning Room in Altamont, NY. I love this shop and the owner, Liz Cassidy, is fabulous - so warm and friendly. The place just oozes with good karma, so head on over if you're in the area.

Here's another shot of the shop -



I tell my kids that you learn something every day. Here's what I've learned about my knitting over the last few weeks -

At this moment in time, I am not a cable-knitter. I attempted a very lovely scarf found in A Fine Fleece, but I discontinued my efforts after the sense that I wasn't making swift progress. I just couldn't get my fingers to function while working with the cable needle, and before I became completely disillusioned with the idea of knitting cables, ripped it back to start something new.

My present mode of thinking finds cables "fiddly", so I have reverted to lace (I know, a lot of people think that's fiddly with all the counting and charts...). Here's a quick knitting scarf in a yarn I dyed:



It's nearly done, so I'll snap another shot once it's blocked.

Happy summer! Hope you are enjoying some time outside.

Peace & Love
