This is the shawl that I am working on. I took parts of a shawl pattern and Allison and I branched out from there. The yarn is so light that my hands do not hurt at all!
As the windy wet weather left our area, I surveyed my flowers that I planted for my neighbor to enjoy. Well, all those sturdy cosmos were…..yeah…on the ground. THe were in need of SUPPORT. Enter the bench , Fireman and I made in Illinois years ago. There. that’s better. Go cosmos go. And now the echinacea I transplanted in May to that area are also in bloom!!
So for all the fuss I made about my poor garden crops, I felt a whole lot better after listening to AMy Beth’s podcast. I feel so happy now that I know my 6 acorn squash were really a WIN. I will have to tell her how to protect the flowers from cut worms….because I do think that made the difference. She has me wanting to go apple picking now.
