Getting even closer to home provided views nearly as scenic as those in the museum. This one is only a few miles from my house. It's a little cooler here than it is in Denver, but only if one stays in the shade. I've spent some of my shady time knitting small, homey projects. I finished the pillow cover I knit to practice my fair isle techniques.
I should be ready to start that fair isle sweater now. Instead, I've started another pillow.
I looked at the yarn I had left from the first pillow and couldn't stop myself. I hope this one uses up most of the leftovers. Otherwise, there might be a third pillow soon. They're quick, easy and small, the perfect summer knitting. I'm so glad I finally finished my long-term sweater project and can bounce around from one little project to another. With a little perserverance, I might have a few more finished projects by the end of the month.
