Wool in my soup

I am a 67 year-old grandmother living on Vancouver Island. I have crocheted, cross-stitched and rug hooked, but I always had yarn on needles. Recently knitting has become my primary hobby!

Saturday Sky!

It is beautiful here today, but very warm. It appears to be that way all over North America and Europe! I will not complain about the heat, as our son and DIL are in Oklahoma City and it was 109 degrees there on Thursday. There is a grape vine sticking out from our pergola, which I was standing under when I took the photo!

Looked warm for the Tour de France today, but Floyd came back big time. I did not have a favourite, but when he came back from his disastrous day on Thursday to be up at the top on Friday, I knew who I would cheer for. Go Floyd!

Taking a little break from knitting today and doing some reading! Tired of all the stitchmarkers on Clapotis, so I cast on a cotton 'strawberry' hat for a little girl!

I've read elsewhere that you can purl the stitch immediately after the marker, and do away with the markers. I may do that on my fourth Clapotis. :)

I enjoy your blog.

Seems funny to comment on my own blog, but I just might try that Dicentra. I tried to go to your blog, but was not able to. Thanks for visiting my blog. I just completed a strawberry hat and had it in the mail before I realized that I did not take a picture! Darn!

I can't say I am watching The Tour de France but I did worry about the heat for the riders. I feel like I'm competing just staying awake ...England is going to have to adopt air-conditioning .How I wish I had planted a fig tree now a friend's just two streets away is doing great.

Peg, I'm just starting a complicated lace cropped cardigan (free pattern from Elann) and already have so many stitch markers in that the whole thing is rattling! Hate the darn pests! It's a bit cooler here in Ireland, but not much - very unusual for us. Love your snowman and love Vancouver Island - say hallo for me to any whales you might see.
