High Summer

It has been so long that I've posted that I couldn't remember my password for a second. We've finally reached high summer here and its been beautiful. It rained for much of May, June and July. Quite a change after the last couple of years drought.

Finished a small shawl for a friend of Tom's with some beautiful yarn with silver in it from Bluestocking Knits. It's Milkweed, by CosmicPluto. I hope she likes it.

I've been working on socks and a couple of other small things, but not much to report about really. I'm thinking about small bits for Christmas knitting which I'd like to start soon. Sewing seems much more attractive right now than holding wool.

Animals are all good though my old friend Muddy died a couple of weeks ago. He was the last buddy from my single days (19 when he died) and you couldn't ask for a sweeter cat. Seems like we're always losing someone but then again we have so many.

Off to mow the lawn. I've been thinking about everyone and hope that you are well!
