I set aside the wool wrap I was knitting when I got my box of yummy yarn from Knitpicks. I had ordered lots of Cotlin (cotton linen blend). I decided to knit up some dish towels (using cotlin) and dish clothes (using dishie from knit picks). I also picked out some lovely pink and light blue cotlin to make Fiona and Nuala some cute summer tank tops (and maybe sew some matching simple skirts for them as well.)
Honestly I am not reading anything. I am knitting, nursing Nuala and watching Bones on Netflix.

Crafting and reading

I have been wanting to make Fiona another Oliver and S simple skirt for weeks and weeks now. They literally take no time, maybe an hour and a half (and that is because I am so slow), and in the end you are rewarded with clothing! I can't remember what the fabric is, I know I won it on a blog give away awhile ago. It is a jersey cotton and just so soft. Fiona loves the skirt, and so do I.

I finished up Fiona's socks, the ones that will match Nuala's leg warmers... but I have no photo of them. I started on a wrap that I have plans to send to one of my cousins in Oregon. It is in the yarn I had planned on using for Audrey's Shalom sweater this past winter. But I just didn't like how it was turning out. Plus I have to be honest... we live in Arizona we really don't need wool sweaters, but my cousin could probably use a nice wool wrap. I am using Quince and Company "Puffin" in glacier. I am not a huge fan of this yarn, maybe other Quince and company yarn is super fabulous but I have not been very impressed, considering how everyone raves about their stuff. Maybe it is just the Puffin yarn.
I am trying to read "Angela's Ashes", but between doing my reading for my studies and just life the books seem to take a backseat. So far it is good, and I promised Audrey I would read it, so I shall.

Yesterday's sky

just before the rain

the rain 

just after the rain
We don't get much rain here in Arizona, so when we do it is a big deal... at least in this household. The windows thrown open to let in the beautiful scent of rain, the kids run outside barefoot and free to soak up even a few minutes of the drizzle. It is always a celebration.
