I'll miss them, come September. The summertime is nearly into August .. September-school-days seem to be creeping up on us too easily but thankfully we've a few more weeks left of lazy mornings waking up to a purring, bathing kitty / carefree evenings spent watching movies / eating whatever for dinner whenever we get hungry / lolling around in comfy wear for as long as we want / late breakfasts / activities around town geared for the warm weather / endless s'mores ... not to mention knitting hours at a time with no interruption.
Last week I cast on Doncaster, a free design by Holli Dapp. She is the sweet hostess of Swift Knits Podcast and if you haven't checked her out, be sure to add her to your podcast lineup on youtube. She is super enthusiastic and a joy to watch and be inspired by all her knitting work. I'm knitting Doncaster with Plymouth Yarn Co., Monte Donegal Hand Dyed in color, Aqua. I had purchased this yummy yarn at the Maryland Sheep & Wool festival back in May. It is ideal for this shawl pattern. Bonus mention ... it's my first foray into knitting cables and I'm loving them. Isn't the color dreamy?!
Off to knit outside - gorgeous weather today. Happy Tuesday!
