When it gets warm enough—hot, even—I still have projects that need more stitches, and sometimes the only possible solution is to set up a work station on the porch. We don’t have permanent table there, as it faces east, is open to the north, and is frankly chilly for much of the year. However, one of the many benefits to driving a first-generation Honda CR-V is that the removable floor of the cargo space is also a card table—perfect to set up for an afternoon of finishing up a sweater (see below)! Even during the warmest part of Sunday afternoon, there was a refreshing breeze, and easy access to ice water refills!

Candy Skein arrives from Astoria, OR. Dyer Tami is often not available for wholesale orders during the summer, since she also operates a shop, and is busy with summer tourism. This year, things being upside down as they are, she had time to dye up this order of Luscious Fingering. I ordered three each of 16 colors, a mix of tonal solids and variegated or speckled colors. The blend is 80% merino, 10% cashmere, 10% nylon. I used Luscious Fingering as one of the colors in my Breathe & Hope shawl, and I thoroughly enjoyed it!
The Poetry Foundation has among its missions to digitize, preserve, and extend access to back issues of Poetry Magazines, and you can browse the archives back to 1912. I fell down a rabbit hole looking for poems that referenced knitting; Cory Wade’s Knitting Litany captured something of the peace that working with our hands sometimes brings (and sent me to my collection of Barbara Walker’s Knitting Pattern Treasuries to look up some of the stitches referenced in it).
