While on our anniversary weekend escape in the Columbia River Gorge, we visited an alpaca farm / yarn shop near Hood River where I picked up a few skeins for future projects. Wish you could feel how soft this yarn is...
Actually, the yarn on the left (the Sanibel) was purchased at Knot Another Hat (a yarn shop in downtown Hood River). I've cast on a simple ribbed scarf for myself and look forward to working on it during read aloud time when we start back to lessons next week.
Just picked up Plowing in Hope by David Bruce Hegeman last evening and am hooked. Will share more as I read, but will leave you with this quote:
Whether beautiful or repulsive, uplifting or destructive, the effects of human habitation are everywhere to be seen across the whole surface of the earth. We call these durable effects of human habitation "culture."What have you been reading or creating lately?
Thanks for visiting Happy in Dole Valley! To join us on our journey, look to the upper right to follow or subscribe. :)
