Tending my yarn garden...
Diligently working on that purple Jared Flood and enjoying every stitch... With only two skeins to go, I'll be handing this project off to the daughter in law (from whom I adopted it) so that she can finish what she started. :) Next up are three more Baba knits for Charlotte -- booties, a bonnet, and an Easter shrug to go with the pretty green and white dress she'll be wearing to church. Oh, and by the way, the purple in today's photos is the most true I've been able to capture of this yarn thus far which makes me happy. :)
Reading is scattered right now. It's been a busy week and rainy; although it has been in the 50s a few days, the ground is too saturated to even think of planting any seed -- even peas. We truly needed the rain, so I'm not complaining. Spending lots of time perusing old copies of Mother Earth News and my library of gardening books for new (and old) ideas.
I picked up a copy of the Washington State Constitution while in Olympia on Monday and plan to read it through with Daniel and make comparisons with the US Constitution which we're reading this week for our humanities co-op. He's really into it which makes it fun. 15 is such a great age.
And just incase you missed it, I shared a picture of my yarn stash here. I have a lunch date with a friend who knows of several neat shops over in Camas where she assures me I'm likely to find just the cabinet I'm looking for...stay tuned!
