Yes, Claudia ...you CAN buy nice summer clothes but, look what happened when I did. The purchase of this summer jacket made me 'want' a Chickami to go underneath. And wearing this jacket made me think how much fun having a hand-knit cardi would be, which brought on the 'want' for the Eyelet Cardi. It's a vicious cycle, I swear.
After the very unZen week, a trip into the mountains seemed like a must. What better way to get back to balance than to feel the warm sun on your face, breath the clean crisp air and see that true blue sky. Ah, it was heaven. Chickami came along for her photo shoot and provided us more time in the sun. While knitting the 'Kami' I had to become the boss to ensure a good fit. More rows were added before starting the decreases that shaped the waist. Also added were more rows before starting the increases for the bust. The best thing about knitting your own clothes is that you can 'make' them fit well.
After returning home and cleaning up the Zen patio we enjoyed some Adagio Tea. The true signs of summer; yard work, grilled food and ice tea. Come on over! Ice tea, everyone!?
