Essence of August

August has been a busy, busy month. We went to Lake Charles, Louisiana for ten relaxing days. It was so relaxing that I could hardly bestir myself to even take pictures, but I did manage a few.

My Littlest Sailor

If you look closely my littlest sailor has a bandaged left hand. He provided us with the most exciting moments of the vacation when he smashed his pinky finger in a door hinge while playing hide and go seek. He lost a fingernail, and gained 6 stitches. Ouch!

This morning we arrived back from a two day trip to Lewes, Delaware. Saturday was a gorgeous day on the beach, but it was overcast and rainy yesterday. I took some pictures at the pink house on the canal (if you've been to Lewes you've probably noticed it - it's really pink) and ortonized them. (All are clickable for a bigger image.)

On the fiber front I've been working on a Perfect Periwinkle Turtleneck (in limey green cottonease), and I dyed a few t-shirts and a little fabric. I'll try to take some pictures soon and post those.

Congratulations to all my buddies who won ribbons at the fair for their knitting!
