Rain, rain, go away

Rain, rain, go away

It’s our second day of solid rain here on Kapiti Coast. ¬†But I can’t complain too much. ¬†It’s easier to spend the days inside working¬†when it’s dreary out. ¬†And I get to wear my Baffies around the house!

I made these back in October. ¬†They were the only project I managed to complete (or even cast on, for that matter!) from Kate Davies Seven Skeins Club, which culminated in the wonderful Buachaille book. ¬†Not because I didn’t want to make the rest, but other projects got in the way. ¬†Hopefully this fall, I’ll make more of the projects from the book. ¬†The Buachaille yarn is a joy to knit with — gorgeous colors, sproingy and sheepy, but not too coarse to wear next to the skin — a very special yarn indeed.¬†(There’s even a song about it!)

Wherever you are, I hope your week’s going well. ¬†Clear skies are¬†in the forecast for tomorrow. ¬†The rain’s not so bad, but I’m looking forward to the return of beach combing and blue skies.

Monday morning, you could see Kapiti Island so clearly from the beach!

Happy Thursday!

 

Driftwood!

Driftwood!

At least once a day, and most often quite more, I walk the twenty steps it takes to get to the beach and wander along for a bit.  It’s a very quiet beach — a “busy” day consists of seeing more than a person or two on your ramble.  Even though I never get very far, every day the bit of beach I wander along has something new to admire.  P6192462.JPG Continue reading “Driftwood!”
