Cafe society

July 24, 2012

This might give an idea of what I have been doing this summer in between storm tracking.  There have been many calm walks to cafes and parks, summer books and knit projects this July.

The aftermath

The branches of old trees in our local park couldn’t hold up after yesterday’s short but fierce storm.

Stormy skies

Stormy skies

Here’s a view from my balcony. I have been fascinated by the cold fronts which move in after a day of sticky heat.
A high wind, thunder and lightning with torrential rain followed.

Fashion heritage

My love of knitting comes from my Mom but it is my granny who had the style in this family.  Mom is the girl 2nd from the right and Granny is the stylish woman left of her. Look at those shoes.

The lost bag of India

Little traveling bag
Lost in transit

This little bag within a bag was made for my niece, Gaia.  She lives in India and sadly did not receive the package since it was lost in the mail.
These photos are all we have left.  It was fun thinking about her as I made it.  It’s all about the process.

It’s been too long.  More knitting to come.

Thoughtful gifts

A super thoughtful gift

I don’t know what to say about these except that I love them. A beautiful rich wood with contrasting black edges and a matte finish. Those silhouettes bring me right back to elementary school, having our profile outlined with the overhead projector and Sharpie markers onto huge newsprint pages.
