July in Jordanstown

This was the view from the rain splattered kitchen window today. More than strawberries crying in raised beds out there. Mattman couldn't understand why we weren't racing out to retrieve washing, as both suns are now well trained to do. No point in salvaging wet canoe gear though, is there?

This was much of my view this afternoon. PC dozed with suns, there not being much else to do as we all tried to summon up enough enthusiasm to set off for the swimming pool! So I unravelled soft, deep balls of repose and embarked on an hour's "looping". Kindly given by Crafting Catherine on her return from holiday, and surprisingly appropriate with weather, weather everywhere, and not a drop to like- lots of greenery overcast with black. These great drops of woollen moss I do however like very much.

And the binding yarn made me smile because I had a quick rummage in its entrails to discover that, just as Crafting Nicki maintained, yarn from the middle does indeed share itself magnanimously without unravelling its whole. She just didn't have the muddle between end and ball...

If you do have a look, notice that June in Jordanstown did display much less inclement conditions.
