Everything is Green

June 17, 2008

It has been raining the past couple of days here in New Hampshire. I love early morning when it is raining or has rained during the night. The woods are ethereal. Everything is green, in different hues and tones, highlighted by the mist and the just rising sunlight.  I drive a fairly country road to work, it is such a peaceful start to my day.

There is a lot blooming in my garden. Here are a couple of pictures.

 

 

 

Also my fish are thriving (remember the lone fish under the ice). Here is a picture at feeding time:

  

 

 My Montego Bay scarf remains unblocked. I just haven’t had time. I tried doing the three needle bind off for the Laguna blouse the other night but it looked awful. The final row of the shoulders is knit 3 together across which makes it very bulky. I need to sit down and look at it carefully to see what to do. It seems odd that that is the way to decrease across the shoulder. And what difference will it make if I knit 2 together across, as long as I have the same number of stitches on both sides of the shoulders? I have also been working on the Landscape Shawl, but that gets boring so I need to put it aside. I started a pair of socks last night for my carry around project. They are the Maxwell socks from Jane Ellison, Queensland Collection. I love the yarn, Kathmandu Aran. 85% Merino, 10% silk and 5% Cashmere! It is so soft. The other great thing: I am using size 7 needles. They are going to be quick, fat and warm socks!

 Please visit my on line store. I continue to add new yarns and spinning fibers.
