Summer in Our Yard

Dax and I spend many mornings picking raspberries and poking around the backyard before it gets hot.  A few days ago, the sky was a little overcast and the light was just perfect for taking some close-ups of all our little treasures.

I love the colors of these plums that fall to the ground.  Some have this great purpley color underneath a dusty mauve layer that covers the fruit. 

Hope you are enjoying your summer wherever you are!

So, um…hi!

After the holidays, I thought I was in a bit of a knitting slump.  But as it turns out, I finished knitting my Thermal, knit a mohair vest but ran out of yarn, and worked on a few other things here and there. 

And I’ve been cranking out these fantastic guys like nothing else.  Maddox by Danger Crafts

Mason; for a friend who likes fuzzy toys.  Dax called him “Big”.

Rosie G., just for fun.

AWESOME-O for Dax.

Landon, a gift for a friend turning one!

This handsome guy is Ian, the first monster, for a new baby.

And one lonely Greta (pattern also from Danger Crafts).

All yarn and needle details are on Ravelry. 

I’ve had a few patterns come out since I last blogged, and I’ll write about some of them soon.  Right now, I’m designing a little lace bolero/vest perfect for summer that I’m hoping to release in the next month; sneak peek coming soon!

Until then, keep on dancing!
