Is there anything better on a hot summer day than to sit on a shady porch with a tall iced tea and some knitting and good reading? (Please don’t mention that yes, a pool would make it that much better.)
I actually did a lot of knitting – on these new socks and
on the Gail Nightsongs shawl, which is whizzing right along.
Meanwhile, upstairs, the blocked dropped stitch morning surf scarf was drying on its blocking wires.
This card is one I made for niece C (the elder) last week – she got it already, so I can show it here. It actually was about as easy as a card could be, using the Cricut machine and Damask Cartridge. It’s the demo project they show in the book. I just loved it, and it was easy to make this pretty, elegant card. She loves light blue, and pretty things, so I hope it cheered her up while she recovers.
