Qiviut Cowl

A long time ago when we went to Alaska, I picked up a skein of Qiviut yarn.  It is so soft and so lovely and it's going to eventually going to be a cowl.

Specifically, the Jeweled Cowl by knittimo.

 

It's a bit fiddly, but I do have the first row of beads attached. About 50 more repeats to go.

Binding

I'm sewing the binding on Crazy Batik.

 

 This will give me plenty of handwork for the Friday Bee.

Epitaph for a Peach

From the Goodreads website:  "A lyrical, sensuous and thoroughly engrossing memoir of one critical year in the life of an organic peach farmer, Epitaph for a Peach is "a delightful narrative . . . with poetic flair and a sense of humor" (Library Journal)."

This is a great book.  I loved the writing and the stories.  You see what it's like to be a small scale farmer today.  All the worries and effort over the generations that go with family farming and why he does it anyway.  I appreciate sun dried raisins much more than I used to.

I Think

I think Spring might be on the way.

It sure looks like the daffodils think so.

 

 So do the weeds.
