August 2016
 


 
  It has been a lovely summer so far, and the plants in the garden are still blooming.  Things are starting to burn out prematurely, though.  It was so warm early on in the season, and Victoria had bumper crops of blueberries this year.  They were very early (at least a month).

I have always picked about 25 lbs of blueberries every year, and here are Lily's berries that didn't make it to the freezer.  She really loves them!



Summertime is definitely the time for sock knitting, shawl knitting, and creating knits with lighter weight yarns.  Below are a few new fingering weight and sock weight yarns that have just arrived in the store.
