And finally. . .
Yesterday I did some weeding in perennial beds. I dug up a clump of iris that I thought had been planted over a stone base. Those stones turned out to be big overgrown rhizomes that looked like stones! I discarded the soft parts and the old tough roots. Now I have a big pot of iris toes to plant this fall. AND there are daylilies to transplant. AND apples to pick. Ah, fall.
I'm in the office one day a week. The rest of the time I work remotely from my home studio. My knitting area is cluttered with three ring binders of patterns and tons of yarn. Out in the garden we are picking summer squash and tomatoes and green beans and sunflowers this week. What a bounty!
You might have talked or texted or emailed with Maureen who manages our office and shipping. Maureen's kids are going to in person school this fall. While our local school district is offering options, her kids will be in classrooms. Some of my grandkids are in classrooms already; others are getting prepared for distance school. We are both hoping that the virus stays contained and that the benefits of learning will continue to keep kids resilient in this pandemic.
Thanks again for supporting us. We hope you've had a good summer and are looking ahead to fall. Keep in mind that we fill orders on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Get your yarn orders in for fall and winter projects! And make a plan to VOTE. That's a big part of this fall's events.
