GREETINGS

It’s been hot and humid and today we had some showers.  The humidity is supposed to be much less tomorrow but tonight it’s just sticky.

Helen is done her antibiotics and seems to be so much better.  I hope Chris and I can get her outside area finished so she can spend the rest of the summer outside.  Although I think she loves being in the kitchen and getting all the attention.  SHe is so sweet.

A NEW KNITTING BOOK WITH HISTORY LESSONS AND PATTERNS -THE VINTAGE SHETLAND PROJECT

One of the patterns from the book is The Prisoner of War Jumper.   The jumper was knitted for Ralph Paterson by his wife. He was wearing it when he was taken prisoner of war in Hong Kong. He must have held it dear as he mended it with odds and ends of yarns.

This book is so important to the people of the Shetlands, shepherd’s, spinners, knitters and history buffs around the world.

The author Susan Crawford has written other vintage knitting books I am not sure when this book will be coming out but I will keep you posted or you can check out her website susancrawfordvintage.com

MORNING GLORIES

The morning glories are out in force again this year.  I was worried that there would be none as the large tree fell on the bird house and their spot.  It was late spring when the mess was cleared away but they and the bird house escaped the worst of the tree damage.

Many thanks for reading my blog on this sultry evening.  I hope its cooler where you are.  Carole
