In spite of the high winds we’ve had in Taos lately, I’ve been able to get in a little knitting in the garden. Our garden walls block some of the wind, and the light is wonderful for seeing small stitches and true colors of yarn.
I’ve gotten to the heel flap on the first of the socks I’m making for John with Interlacements Tiny Toes yarn, but my camera battery conked out before I could get a picture this morning. I’ll have more finished to show tomorrow, anyway.
I’m also making progress on my Branching Out alpaca lace scarf. The perfect project for garden knitting.
Next to one of my garden sitting and knitting spots our first iris of the season has opened up and it’s gorgeous.
We haven’t known what color any of our iris are since they were put in a year ago in April, and by the time we arrived in June they were already finished blooming. So we’re having fun guessing what colors we have this year. We have only a week left, so I’m hoping more will open before we have to head back to Virginia.
This morning a Ravelry knitter from Lawrenceville, about 18 miles from Emporia, contacted me, so I know I now have at least one knitting friend ready and waiting for me when I get there. WhoooHooo for Ravelry!
We’re off this morning to explore a new mountain bike trail.
