I am on my 7th hexagon now, and it is interesting to see how these colors play out. Here are the first six. That last one-lime and turquoise and purple- started with some handspun for the white part. I had just a little teeny ball and wanted to experiment. Close up it is obviously not the smooth worsted spun mill yarn.
I can't seem to get Blogger to work right. For some reason it started out in the center of the line.
This morning I heard a white-throated sparrow. This is always an indicator of changing seasons. I just kept on filling up feeders and water stations. For some reason the birds like the dog watering bowl on the deck instead of the official bird bath. I also put a shallow dish my friend CF made a long, long, long time ago out front. I see birds bathing in that a lot, and sometimes I see squirrels and chipmunks drinking.
See how it is doing this crazy thing.
We have had 80's for a number of days. It was fine the day that it was gusting 40 mph winds. But yesterday and today it is HOT and HUMID! I hate being all hot and sticky in mid-October. I know that I absolutely hate cold that lasts and lasts. But I don't want to be hot and sticky in October.
I have been revisiting some books that I am not sure if I have read on the library audiobook selections. If it turns out I have read them a while back, I will still listen. If for some reason I remember how the mystery turns out, I return it. It is amazing to me how listening to a book makes it a different book than one that I have actually read. I guess our imaginations really do fill in gaps as we read. I like that part of reading. I just find it entertaining to listen when I work.
Supposedly a front is coming in with cooler temps and rain. We have occasional clouds moving overhead. A frog was singing for rain earlier.
I have pulled out all my cat fabrics and I am amazed at the amount that I have. I didn't even count the smaller pieces from my cat quilt. I think it is time to make a child's quilt for my neighbor's charity.
Noodles has been really busy killing rodents. His teeth are so bad that he can't quite eat them like he used to. But he can still KILL the darn things. It is gross, but it is nature.
I am knitting a jacket finally. I am using my blue handspun that is larger than my normal handspun. It is soft and squishy and I am really liking it. It is simply large mitered squares. The first row is a triangle, a square, and a half-square. The second row is three squares. I am on the middle row. Then the third row is a square, a half-square, and a triangle. It is fascinating to see how it coming out.
I am also still knitting on the stripe-y blanket. I love the colors in this one. Not sure who it will go to. I am sure I will find a deserving home somewhere. I always find a good home.
So I am now making myself a toasted cheese sandwich. I am a tad bit hungry. Have a good rest of the week and a good weekend. Just not 80 degrees, please.
