Beginning and end

DSC_0037 DSC_0040 DSC_0044DSC_0001 DSC_0004 DSC_0017 DSC_0029 DSC_0034DSC_0048 DSC_0049Here on the Northern Coastline of California we don’t really get a true summer. Surprisingly, the typically ‘sunny’ months of July and August are usual socked in with fog, which means that tomatoes and summer squash are a no-grow around here. Thankfully, the weather makes up for it in Spring and Fall when we gratefully receive mini summers – the unexpected heat and pouring bright sunshine doing its best to rid us of the doom and gloom of winter rain and summer fog.
It feels like we are beginning to think about the hibernation of winter; making sure equipment is away, that we have enough wood, a dry place for the dogs to hide in the rain. I am enjoying the last of my flowers,  picking and drying zinnias and marigolds for winter dyeing. Hopefully I will get another round of blooms before the much cooler weather hits.
Between the misty sunrise and hazy sundown, and everything else life is throwing at us, I’ve managed to finish the samples of the pattern I was having horrible frog-itus with. Just a bit more editing and chart building and it will be on its way. And in wrapping up one project, I am beginning something new in Sincere Sheep‘s amazingly squishy Shepherdess Worsted. It’s going to be a fun one, full of cables and short-rows – my fave!!
