Perusing Barbara Walker's knitting treasuries

Not a bad way to pass the time on a hot summer day.

it is already in the high eighties nineties here and the plan may change to sitting under an umbrella somewhere, sipping ice water and knitting on my shawl-which shawl is now in need of an alternate border plan. I am not enthralled with the one that came with the pattern ( or maybe I just cannot execute it properly but I have unknit it at least two times and it is bugging me that I cannot get it right sooooo)  and I am barely good enough to create my own, so I have been scouring my lace books and thinking about it. A tough job, but someone has to do it.

When older children are home, you are likely to see signs of their presence in the house
before you have an actual appearance.

images from my stoup
Where do you sit in the summer? in a yard? on a beach? in a park? on a stoup?
I think I will be sitting here for a while. there is a nice breeze and my bones are barking after hitting the boardwalk with my body when my bike took off without me. Actually I stopped to take a picture and lost my balance as I tried to stop. I can't really remember how it happened but I landed on my backside and at first i was afraid I had broken my tailbone or at least my head which I also banged. I am glad I landed just west of aforementioned tailbone and nothing feels more than slightly bruised.
Fortunately I am a very well rounded person. and there was no blood or gore. Scads of people stopped to help me gather my camera and gear which had been riding in my basket( i love my basket!) and they applauded when I decided to get up. I bowed.
