Everything in the Washington D.C. area seems to be covered with a film of yellow dust. And my coworkers are doing a lot of sneezing
Last week we had lots of rain. That was followed by a few very warm days, causing trees and plants to burgeon forth. And that leads to . . .
The weather forecast for today states that tree pollen is very high — same forecast for tomorrow. We’re supposed to have some rain over the next couple of days. That will mix with the blanket of pollen on my car’s windshield to form a yellow paste.
Yup. Mitering along. I’ve started thinking about what to do for the seaming of this garment. What I think I will do is to pick up and knit stitches along the edges, then do a purl three-needle bind-off so that there’s a purl ridge along the seam. I’ll try it on the shoulder seams when I complete the front. If I don’t like it, I can easily rip it out, but I think it’ll go nicely with the rest of the garment.
The Melon Ball socks are done.
And I plucked this lovely skein of Chewy Spaghetti sock yarn out of the stash for the next pair.
The colorway is “Serendipity” and I bought it last week from The Loopy Ewe. Isn’t it a great colorway? I’m looking forward to diving in!
Hokie Spirit Memorial Fund
L-B sent me this link to the Hokie Spirit Memorial Fund. From this page you can read about the fund, which will be used to cover expenses including but not limited to assistance to victims and their families, grief counseling, memorials, communication expenses, and comfort expenses.
You can also access a list of individual funds established in the victims names, and also go to the donation page itself, where you can donate to any of the funds online using a credit card. (There’s also the option of mailing a check.)
This. I think, is a good, practical way to show your support and help out survivors and the families of the victims of last week’s horrific shooting.
