Happy Wednesday! This morning we have bright sunshine, a gentle breeze, low temps and lots of birdsong — brilliant!
The Brickless scarf/shawl is nearing completion. One last section of the lace and then bind off. I have enjoyed this project so much. It’s a lovely pattern. Watching the colors change is plenty of motivation to keep going.
When the last color started to blend in, a pear or mint kind of green, I had to stop and ponder for a bit. I was at the end of the last repeat and wasn’t liking the way the colors would end. Lucky me — I had a small ball of solid red (purchased for another project) and decided to finish up with that. It’s just a shade darker, but I think it looks like part of the gradient.
On the reading front, I finished A Walk in the Park by Jill Mansell. A very nice read — interesting characters, lots of story lines that intertwine. Now I’m struggling to find another book. I’ve started two but just can’t seem to get into either one. I might need to find a nice cozy mystery for a change of pace. Maybe a nice knitting mystery. Any suggestions?

Buses have made their rounds for the first day of school here. Even though I’ve retired from teaching, this time of year still brings back memories of preparing my classroom and greeting smiling faces. I love walking the school supply aisles. I may not need anything for back-to-school, but you can find some great crafting and art journaling supplies.
Thanks so much for stopping by here. Enjoy your day!
