All grown up

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!

  1. I'm not really ready for summer to be over yet, though I've really noticed the days getting shorter and there's no denying it, but I am sort of missing choosing/wearing my daily scarf/shawl/neckwarmer. ; )


  2. Herbivore looks so easy to wear! And I love Hawthorne! Wow, what a gorgeous pattern, but over my ability level.Summer is flying by! We'll be wearing scarves again all too soon.Enjoy, Jane!


  3. Love the photo of your nieces! They grow so quickly. . . it's nice to check back to see "who they were" once in a while. Enjoy the last bit of summer. August always seems to go by so fast.
