The past couple weeks have been a whirlwind. Whatever wasn't photographed, and most wasn't, has been relegated to blur status. Yesterday afternoon I took my sister and niece to the airport, got home around 8:30, collapsed on the sofa with my new knitting project (just scroll down), and this morning have been catching up on office stuff. We had a great visit. We went to our favorite garden for high tea; cucumber sandwiches, scones with cream and strawberry jam. There was a pot of tea for each of us. It was overcast, but the colors where lovely. The phlox and helenium were in full bloom.
We went for a drive.
We picked blueberries and blackberries. We checked out the (not so wild) wildlife.
I finished the trekking socks. I drove them around thinking that I might make time to stop for a photo shoot, and ended up taking a hurried shot this morning on the from walk walk. I had great intentions.
I dyed some yarn. (They played in the pond.) This is a 50 silk/50 merino (same blend as all of my yarns) two ply lace wt. I've been wanting to knit with Zephyr. I bought lots and have started dyeing it. So far, my plan is to do shaded yarns. Subtle. Yarn that will show off the lace patterns, not compete with them.
Love it. I'm knitting the Swallowtail Shawl from the Fall Interweave Knits. L.O.V.E.L.Y. I enjoed knitting the Flower Basket Shawl, another by Evelyn Clark and I am enjoying this one too.
