As the temperatures climb back into the 90’s with a heat index to match, I am longing for some cooler weather.
However, I know that will not always be the case. Come about January 1 when it is cold and grey, summer will be a long forgotten memory.
Until I open some of this jam, that is. The warmth of summer will all come flooding back.
After receiving a deluge of rain last night, this was the sunset that ended the day.
More rain is expected tonight, but for these few brief moments I will just bask in the glory of the setting sun.
Have a great weekend everyone.
I have signed up to do some test knitting for Rosemary Hill of Designs By Romi, and it was the smartest thing I have done in a good long while.
After what seemed like a series of knitting failures, it sure is nice to be able to share with you all a knitting success.
I started Jared Flood’s Hemlock Ring Blanket some months ago and after making a series of mistakes knitting in the dark sitting in patients rooms, I had put it away and you know what they say about “out of sight”…
Well, I pulled it back out in May, frogged it and began again.
It now resides in its new home with my friend StevoFC and he loves it.
He took most of these lovely photos so that I could share them with you all.
Thanks for making my Hemlock Ring shine, Steve.

It has been an amazing week here at Casa del KatKnits and while there were not any baked potatoes, much was shared; from the quaintness of Saugatuck to the grandeur of Lake Michigan to my favorite food spots and having my best friend experience them all with me truly did make this week heaven.
Yesterday we headed north to visit Grand Haven and the day was perfect. You can see some of my pictures on Flickr of the sights from the day.
I even managed to squeeze in some baking so I could send some cookies home with Steve.
