I think Mother Nature likes balance but I wonder if she is working on balance somewhere else besides North America. We've had probably over 4 inches of rain this week in Wisconsin, while my friends on the left coast are suffering with none. Perhaps the balance is that we are all less than happy with the situation.
My brother and his sons are in Wisconsin for a quick visit so DH and I will be in the Fox Valley for a day then back home to host a small family gathering on Sunday. I don't have much in the way of knitting content so I'll share a few other fun things.
I won Kim's contest and my loot winnings arrived this week. I'm looking forward to knitting two socks on one needle. Perhaps that will be the key to me having more socks. :D I'm really enjoying the sandwich cookbook. I love old cookbooks and this one has a copyright of 1941, so it is older than I am. I'm going to try a few of these recipes, especially the ones for fancy bread in the beginning. Maybe not the prune bread though........
Here are the purchases I made a short while ago in Mayville at Loose Ends Yarn Shop. All of my goodies were locally made. Michele made the bag from upholstery book samples and adorned it with buttons The yarn is handspun and is really a coral pink. It changes in different lighting. I don't know the yardage but I fell in love with it and had to have it. The pin was also crafted in Wisconsin.
