Well, it has been a great summer. Honestly, it might have been the best of my life. Trips! Fireworks! Field trips! Shakespeare! Steam train! Pool! Yep, the summer outdid itself, and I’m excited about packing everything up for fall…
Wait. We still have all of August and half of September to go.
That’s how I feel every year, including this year. Thankfully we still have a couple of fun things to do in August, and the heat is taking a break. This morning when I woke up it was 58 degrees outside and let me tell you, 58 degrees is the optimum temperature for me. If it could be 58 degrees for about eight months of the year I would be a happy camper.
My crafting might be done with summer. I dug up this single sock–this single, gorgeous, perfect sock–this tragically doomed, 100% merino sock. Knitted before I knew better. I think I have to knit its companion, but it breaks my heart. This beautiful sock, made into a pair, will survive one winter… maybe two.
My sewing is certainly done with summer. We’ve reached the point where I may as well sew winter clothes for Mimi, so I am gathering my materials. I’m doing a woodland animal theme with her stuff this winter, and am beyond pleased to have found this foxy ribbon.
