Yarn Along

No exciting news on the knitting front.
I have spent several nights at the reservoir knitting
but it is possible I have spent more time people watching and looking for the 
Great Blue Heron that hangs out there.

I am making progress on the 
Honey Cowl
I picked new hydrangeas this morning from the garden for the flower basket.
I adore the mixture of colors the plants are producing this year.


Up close you can see the pretty flecks of black in the yarn, this yarn is called 
Homestead Tweed
I really love it. No mistakes so far.

I am joining Ginny at Small Things 
for
Yarn Along

  4. Summer goes by so quickly, you need to soak up all the time of enjoying people and bird watching? There will be plenty of time when it gets colder to knit :) I do like the specks of black in there. The colors in your flowers are just wonderful, such a pretty mixture!!

  7. I have been teaching Reed to say hydrangea, as ours are also in bloom. We I'll come upon ne in the yard, and I will prod: what is the name of that plant? He gets a bit tongue tied with that one. Xoxo Andrea @ This Knitted Life

  8. Debbie, I love the hydrangea... it will always be one of my favorite flowers. My plants are producing so sparsely this year, I'm not cutting many. I enjoy the color in the garden. I haven't picked up the needles this summer, I'm trying to finish a couple of smocked outfits for my babies. I hope your week is going well. Hugs.

  20. The colors of the flowers are lovely. The cowl is going well. Knowing myself as I do; people watching would take over my crocheting. Hugs!😊
