Summertime, and the knitting is easy!
I'm having the best time knitting away on my
Sunburst Shawl, designed by Sarah Punderson.
(more info is here)
It's a fun knit and Sarah's directions are very easy to follow.
I think I have about 10 more rows to knit,
but as you can see, they are looooong rows.
I will miss it when it is finished,
so I'm looking at new shawl patterns now!
(Sarah has some beauties!)
Here are my Opal socks:
……just a couple of detail shots of the beautiful yarn.
I'm almost ready to turn the heals,
but my Sunburst has really taken the front row seat!
I've finished a really fun sew session for our granddaughter Maggie.
I've used this pattern from Purl Soho for the gathered top,
and this pattern from Dana Made It for the diaper cover.
I can't wait to see this on Mags.
I really like the gathered top instructions -
very nice French seams on the sides and a lot of edge stitching,
makes for a neat and tidy piece.
You can see a bit of the detail here.
The fabric is seersucker, which I always love for summer!
Now for a bit of a switch in gears,
my new taste treat is this:
Do you like Chai Tea?
I hadn't tried it until recently, and I'm now addicted!
A huge treat for me is a Chai Latte from Starbucks,
but when I'm not near a Starbucks, I can mix this up!
Last Monday, our CSA basket looked like this:
The corn is outstanding! So sweet and fresh.
We enjoyed a spaghetti squash au gratin the other night,
and of course roasted carrots!
These were also included:
I just love beautiful summer flowers, don't you!!
What are you up to this summer? Do tell!!!
Have a great weekend.
Thanks for popping in!
Peace to you and yours!
