Lazy Summer Days
July 11, 2007 § 1 Comment
Summer has arrived in the Pacific Northwest without any slow, gentle, easing into it. Temperatures are hitting the nineties this week. Gasp.
A few months ago I joined a knitting for charity group. It has been so much fun! I am thoroughly enjoying it. Once a month we all get together and knit or crochet, chat about knitting or crocheting, compare knitting or crocheting projects and generally spare our spouses and non-crafty friends of all the knitting and crocheting chatter. Last month a bunch of us finished up quite a pile of washcloths that will be given to a teen half-way house.
I’ve moved on from washcloths to baby blankets. I am loving this pattern. It’s simple but not boring. Interesting enough without being too challenging. I have knit other baby blankets where I can barely keep knitting after the half-way mark because of the monotony of it all. This pattern is Prairie Blanket by Oat Couture and you can see it here. They have a lot of other lovely patterns too.
Kiska thinks this is perfect napping weather and is saving her energy for another, cooler day. Today, she has no interest in the yarn.
