Catching Up

For more reasons than you'd like to hear I've been busy with work and more. My garden has been delighting me more and more each day. I'm totally in love with my Snow in Summer!!! I've finally found a place it loves in my front yarn. It has repaid me with a stunning production of flowers. Also my Amsonia is in full bloom with her pale blue flowers. But is she ever tough to dig out. Beware the star plant's tenacious root system. I was able to dig out some small sections to pass along to other perennial lovers.

I have been knitting. Iris, you need to know I've dropped Rona again, but I'll go back. I started another drop stitch scarf in a great handpainted yarn I purchased at The CT Sheep and Wool Festival. This leads me to another yarn purchase at RI Sheep and Wool festival last weekend.....a drop dead gorgeous red cashmere skein. Naturally, I didn't stop there! I found some lovely buttons made by Katy aka Katrinkles. They are soooo lovely. The pics are below.

Painting Tote or Knitting Tote

While at the R I Sheep and Wool Festival I bought myself a great present! A Nantucket Bag!
It's ready for painting or knitting on location.

Our guild also participated in a Sheep to Shawl demonstration. I posed with our finished shawl straight from the loom.
