I can't quite believe it, but I'm on the verge of catching up my postings of this year-long project. The theme for June was a beautiful rose in a friend's garden.
I'm off to Alaska for three weeks, and will be trying something new for the July theme. I've second-guessed the colours of the ocean and rain forest, and have packed a variety of small amounts of greens, blue-greens, blues, and blue-violets. I hope to be knitting en plein air (which gives a new meaning to the knit stitch, a.k.a. "plain knitting"...)
