Knitting, spinning, pets, food and other thoughts

A little quiet in the midst of chaos …


Well maybe chaos is just a wee bit strong, but I’m planning to leave for pre-Camp and Session 3 of Knitting Camp on Monday and I’m not even close to being ready! I need to figure out what knitting to take, at least a spindle and some fiber, or maybe the Louet … it’s always a struggle for me not to take everything including the proverbial kitchen sink πŸ˜‰

My computer access will be limited, so I won’t be posting/blabbing as much as usual – I’ll have to catch up with everyone when I get back.

Friday evening, one of the members of our church shared her home and garden for a very pleasant gathering and potluck. The first 2 photos were taken in her yard – the trees against the sky remind me of photos I’ve seen of Italy; the 3rd one was here this evening.

I like the last photo because Amber and Maggie very rarely settle that close together. They’re not buddies, but apart from an occasional hiss or 2, they mostly coexist at a slightly greater distance.
