Summertime sum-up

5:45 a.m. Lightning, thunder, and a heavy downpour … really? So early in the morning? But it was a gift to the landscape to have everything watered with natural rainfall. By 6:00 a.m. the sun was up and shining brightly. It’s definitely summertime in the Rockies!

As time has passed since the beginning of 2014, one-by-one some of my designs have made it to final publication stage so at this midpoint of the year I thought I would recap what’s been released so far …

    This reminds me that your Lindsay Tank Top is in my queue as a project to complete before next summer. At this rate that’ll basically mean casting on now!

    Thank you — at least you won’t have to knit any sleeves so it won’t take as long!
