I’m so sorry I’m such a terrible correspondent!
I love your Cloud Illusions. In that colorway it’s like snowflakes falling against the early-morning daylight.
The bulky lace project is beautiful in a whole different way. And you’re doing another lace project after that???? LOL! I really didn’t know you would really FINALLY like lace knitting, but you have made at least 2 Summerflies, which is akin to lace.
It’s funny about things. I didn’t like squash or mashed potatoes until quite recently. I still don’t care for gravies, and I still HATE coconut. I know this because every so often I accidentally eat something with coconut in it.
A few weeks ago the Big Warehouse Shopping Club had a free weekend. You could go in and spend without having to pay the “entry price.” Not having been there in quite a while—maybe almost a year, I felt the urge to go. Big disappointment! Unfortunately they weren’t serving free snack meals. I did manage to liberate a huge bag of Sensible Portions Veggie Straws from the shelves, as well as few other items one just can’t buy in volume (or at all) elsewhere. I also got a hot dog. I thought of you while I ate that hot dog. No one else would really understand it. LOL!
Saturday I went to the Michigan Fiber Festival and met up with Jan and Christina there, as well as two of their friends. They were my guides and enablers. They were making a long weekend of it. That festival has grown a lot since the last time I’d been to it. Three buildings of vendors and more outside! Lots of fiber animals, too, since they have actual livestock competitions. A lot of stuff to look at and to pet and to….buy. I did liberate a few skeins of this and that. It was a beautiful day on the Sunset side of the state. We had dinner in Holland, talked a bunch, and I had a really good time.
I also finally finished my summer scarf, just in time for the end of summer. It’s DK-weight cotton, and the pattern is Oh, Helen! by a friend in California. I decided to call my project “Oh, Helen!” to honor both of our moms.
I know you have had a lot of rain. We had quite a lot exactly a week ago, but it’s been absolutely splendid the last several days. Cool at night, but the days warm up nicely. It’s just letter-perfect weather. It’s cucumber-tomato-corn-peach time, and that’s a really good time of year. Speaking of that, I think I need to go see about a BLT salad.
Hello to Joe and Larry. Tell them to behave.
