Things started off quietly enough, picking Hydrangeas :: Then off to Pawbee's for a fun morning – Clover loves Pawbee's yard :: Then back into the car on our way to Mémé's – Clover in Standard Driving Position :: Oh, my…the babies were so adorable! :: Pitter and Mémé,  both in yellow, plus a self-portrait with Tater :: Did I mentions the babies were adorable?! :: Dassa was having waaaay too much fun with her cousins to bother with the babies :: The day ended with some evening shopping for jeans :: Hoping tomorrow is uneventful – in a magical way!

We had a bit of rain (yippee!!) which was a great excuse to break out the board games…
…This morning, the first of the Morning Glories are blooming.

After such a busy week, a quiet afternoon indoors while heavy rains water the gardens – Yes, it is just what is required, right now.

Just A Little Hand Towel…

The perfect solution for a space too small for your average-sized hand towel.  Finally, I'm not finding the towels all scrunched up on the bar, and I love that my knits are useful.

A lacy version is on the needles now…did I mention these are the perfect Summer project?

Off the Needles!

It still needs blocking, but I just couldn't wait to photograph the Weaver's Wool Mini Shawl I've been working on since early July.  It is made from 100% pure Alpaca and it is the softest, warmest thing I think I have ever touched.

The colors are straight off the Alpaca – no dyes.  How cool is that?!

Well….actually, it isn't cool at all – especially with all these super-hot days we've been having.  I'll be happy to switch to some cotton knitting for a while.
