but we are all not of the
sea. Those of us who are,
we children of the tides, must
return to it again and again.
Until the day we don't come
back leaving only that which
was touched along the way.
wings and flew by quicker than
I was prepared for.
It's been very warm here in the
deep south, in fact, it has been
down right hot! I am not ready
for summer! My Alex cut grass
for the first of many times this
season and I have given up
my snow wish until winter.
The pollen has covered every
surface a pale yellow and it
is an amazing sight to see a
cloud of yellow blowing across
My Mike and I slipped away for
a day and spent some time at the
shore [my most favorite happy place,
but I guess you knew that, right ?]
It was a perfect beach day and I can't
wait to do it again and again. With
all that life has thrown at us over the
past month it was nice to escape for
the day and just reconnect.
This week there was a trip to the yarn
store to breathe in some yarn fumes
and while I didn't more yarn [is there
really such a thing? ahem} I did bring
home a few skeins and have already
cast on this shawl . I have loved this
pattern since it was first released and
really Needed a project that is a little
more long term than socks or dishcloths.
The Folio yarn is a dk weight, not fingering
as the pattern calls fo,r so I am knitting on
size 7 needles to get a better drape. There
is no rush as I won't have any need for
a shawl until late October so I am just
going to enjoy the whole knit process.
So, how was your week?
I hope you enjoy your weekend and it
is all you need it to be.
