The Knitting Camp trip was great as always. In addition to all the usual wonderfulness, after some years of blog and email virtual visiting, Angie and I were able to arrange a real meet-up in Cedarburg WI for lunch at Cream & Crepes (yum!) and some visiting after lunch. Fingers crossed that we can do it again! 🙂
A friend at Camp had made the Scallops & Ribs top (Knitter’s K110) and brought it for Show & Tell, so of course she was also part of my Show & Tell. I love her choice of color!
I had a wonderful time, but of course the downside of trips is catching up when you get home. The garden (especially the beans!) kept growing while I was gone, and I’ve frozen quite a few beans to be enjoyed next winter. They’re still coming in at a pretty good rate, and the little French fillet beans (Calima) are definitely on the do-again list, in fact, probably more of them and a bit less of some of the other varieties.
Except for a very few here & there, we’re still waiting for the tomatoes, but the squash and cucumbers are coming in at a manageable pace.
My new rose bush had a tiny, but nice surprise for me – I wanted red, and this is a lovely red.
If anyone’s looking for me, I’ll probably either be in the garden, or in the kitchen dealing with the veggies 😉

I am so glad our meet-up finally materialized!!! Natascha did a beautiful job!
I have five little tomatoes that are ripe and a promise of many more to come. 😀 Oh yes, and beans.
Isn’t funny that we wait and wait and then the veggies all seem to come in a rush.

That is a lovely version of the Scallops and Ribs sweater. I lovelovelove the color. The tomatoes aren’t ripening now because of the cooler evenings. I’m sorry, but I’ll take the cooler evenings. It’s good to have you home and I’m so glad you had a fun trip!!!
