Wait, Summer, Come Back!

I can’t believe it has been a month since my last post but summer just seems to be buzzing past! I have been zipping the kids all around and we even fit some family time in.  Here’s a quick picture tour of the last month!

I have lovingly been caring for my gardenia plants and now they are rewarding me!

I spent July focusing on the Tour de Fleece and had a wonderful time making these yarns.

Little knitting has happened with the exception of a little shawlette knit with my own handspun.  (more on that one later!) I have 2 projects that just need a nudge along, Cece sweater and the Aubrey vest.

I am still finishing up a few ounces of this wonderful Cashmere Silk!  I almost can’t believe I actually made such beautiful 3 ply luxury yarn!

And the kids…sailing in Newport, RI harbor, 

their very favorite Cape Cod mini golf course,

and Cape Cod boating views!

A family daytrip was spent  exploring the western part of Massachusetts.  Did you know that glacial potholes exist in Shelburne Falls?

Last but not least, a new baby needed a wee hat so this was a fun little dye and knit! 

Hope your summer has been as happy and fun-filled!


Just keep swimming


Like Dory of Finding Nemo fame says “Just keep swimming swimming swimming”. That’s what our summer is…at least one swim a day for hours and hours.

At least if I am not swimming too, I have my socks to knit!

Summer is Here!

I was extremely busy with the kids at the end of the school year. Now the summertime schedule is in full swing…pools being the main attraction. Need some mindless knitting so I am finishing up a new sock design and my Aubrey vest. No updated pictures yet.

The most fun news is about my friend Pat’s vacation…in Alaska! This is Ingrid. She was just combed yesterday and Pat’s bringing back fiber for us to play with!
