We're looking forward to fall around here... not to say that we are wishing away summer, but we've tried on and adjusted school uniforms, bought school supplies and new shoes and are gearing up for another season of peewee soccer (or in our case organized socialization of first graders).
This morning is especially peaceful... coffee, Elton John's "tiny dancer" filling my ears, the girls absorbing the Olympics, my better half off enjoying some visiting friends and me with a few moments to record these projects... I hope your morning is equally lovely.

The May fiber was this beautifully dyed Targhee wool... which I spun and chain plied. And then knit it into a cowl which will be a Christmas gift for a dear friend of ours (who has no idea that this blog exists). It will definitely be warm, it's a dense and heavy 8oz of wool all packed into a conservatively sized cowl. (In other words, way over spun.) Modeled by our ever-willing-to-be-photographed girl. I think I included the last picture just so I'll have a record of her hair when time passes...
