Mushrooms, butterflies and Pi shawls

Most German blogs I read are complaining about the cold weather and some actually turned on the heat. Wish it were so here. Since Saturday we have gone through the hottest days of the summer and wouldn't you know it our air conditioning quit working on Saturday. While it's only 75 degrees F today, the humidity is 78% and nary a breeze. You know what that means: the weather outside is oppressive and "the fungus is among us." Puffballs are everywhere and the tomatoes, beans and zucchini are growing mold. Boo hoo.

But on my way to the mail box I was rewarded with a monarch butterfly and quickly took a few photos. If you look closely, you can see that her wing on the left side of the photo seems to be injured. Maybe that's why I could catch a photo.

Lastly, the third portion of the Pi shawl, designed by Wendy Johnson, is finished and I am on to part four. Part four with 576 stitches and a potential of 128 rows will take a while.

I have a couple of lace scarves blocked, but haven't taken yet photos; so they will come later.

Knit on merrily!

  1. I'm on chart 9 of BadCat's Summer KAL, then want to start Wendy's Pi shawl. Hope mine looks 1/2 as good as yours!
