Happy Monday everyone! Hope you all had a nice summery weekend. I know the south half of our country is suffering under the heat waves, and I really feel for you. We usually bake here in the central valley in August, but this year seems to be mild. It's a blessing to leave all the windows open at night and feel the effects of the Delta breeze. This weekend was very productive for me, the menfolk being off to a two day baseball tournament, and no other plans were made. I finished up my baby shower gifts well ahead of schedule and now the pressure is gone and I can move on to other yarny things. Here is the baby quilt done in a simple strip pattern.
I also finished my half granny shawl, which my daughter graciously agreed to model. Since she just got a new haircut, it worked out perfect.
I used one skein of madelinetosh merino light with a K hook. It blocked out very nicely, and I loved it so much I ordered another color. I could make this again and again! I have more to show regarding african flower hexagon madness which has got a hold on me, but I will leave you with a suprise from my garden.
