This is a picture of five of my many nieces, taken in July 1991. I found it stashed in a drawer, and it’s been making me smile.
They’re all grown up now, in their twenties, and out in the wide world. One even has a family of her own. They’re remarkable women, and when I look at this picture I see it in their little-girl faces. I’m proud to be their auntie!
I blocked Herbivore
this morning — it’s been perfect blocking weather, comfortable and breezy — and it dried in no time.
I think I’ll wear this scarf a lot this winter.
The rest of my Sunday off was spent enjoying the weather, knitting on a little baby hat for a friend, and relaxing. The August People have arrived, and it’s nothing but full-on intensity at the bookstore from now until Labor Day. I can handle it as long as I have lots of simple knitting at my fingertips. I’m thinking about a Ruffled Baktus…
… Or Hawthorne, from the new issue of Twist, but it might be a bit complicated for this time of year. Plus, I was sure I had the yarn called for in my stash, but I must have been dreaming. Oh well.
Wishing you a week of perfect weather and knitting that never frustrates!
