Good morning! It’s Thursday and it’s lovely and it’s time once again to give you the minute update of my knitting and spinning. I am still spinning 10 +/- daily and loving it. If you spin and it makes you happy, this is the way to go. And, I’m actually able to do it and accomplish something. I worked on PurplePi last night and she is at that stage of development where you know she’s growing, but can’t see it to save your life. I thought I was very close to the edging, but now that I’ve looked at her with a more critical eye, I can see she needs quite a bit more before I can start her edging. It’s ok. I have the yarn and the desire to do it so that I’m thrilled when she’s completed.
We are now in the dog days of summer. I don’t mind. It was a long long long cold winter. I just wish my allergies weren’t so bad. This is one case where mind over matter doesn’t really work very well. And, since I’m an organic gardener, we have yards full of wild flowers. It may make a lawn perfectionist sick, but I love our pretty little flowers. I saw a honeybee in the front yard working on the clover and realized I’d rather have the honeybee than a short tidy yard, so the grass won’t be cut for a bit. I hadn’t really seen a honeybee for 2 or 3 years, so this was a big deal.
The soundtrack of my day? Omaha by Moby Grape. Have a listen. It’s good music.
And, finally, a daylily from our yard. It’s really a deeper burgundy/red. Have a good one!
