The weather in Central New York today is absolutely gorgeous. Sunny and breezy; just perfect for sitting in the sun and knitting. So that's how I spent the morning. The laundry is still in a heap and dust bunnies are hopping across the hardwood floors, but I enjoyed myself and accomplished some knitting. I love knitting outside, listening to the birds and looking at the flowers.
Although the hostas haven't begun to bloom, they are growing Rowan Summer Tweed. Yes, yes, yes.... I love it, love it, love it.
So I picked enough for a sweater or two.
I know that in the past, I've stated that I was not going to purchase anymore yarn and that all knitting would come from my stash. I lied. And I don't even care. I'm back to purchasing yarn with no specific purpose in mind. It's so much fun.
And finally, I must say I am in the mood to spin, spin, spin. I'm going to try my hand at angora since I have a pile of it from my bunny, Harley.

Poor, poor Salina..... for two weeks she's been on life support; limp and breathless, waiting to be blocked. She's barely holding on by a thread. So since I'm off work Monday, I think I'll shake the dust off of her, wet 'er down, and block the tramp.
With today being Father's Day and the kids away at college. I had the task of entertaining Mr. Effer. You know, be a good wife and plan an activity for the day.
Despite the overcast sky, the weather was beautiful.... in the low 80's with a cool breeze coming off of the lake.
I managed to save enough energy for the ride home to cast on for the Nicole Jacket.
So that was my day, I mean Mr. Effer's Father's Day!!! Did you do anything special for a man in your life?
