Did that get your attention? Yes, Park Silly people can be very silly and they know (better than anyone) how to have a great time on a Sunday in Utah. Every Sunday during the summer months Main Street Park City is full of colorful artists, musicians, shoppers, dog walkers and revelers. Smith found having a conversation with a beautiful Kuvasz quite enlightening. His name was Cody and he was as big as a bear, a polar bear. I had the best ice cream cone (blood orange) ever.
Saturday we spent the morning at the Downtown Farmers Market and a fine time shopping, eating and walking around.Our city has so much to offer and we love to participate in everything and every way we can.
In addition to all the running around, traditional 4th of July fun (we enjoyed several yummy barbecues), and general holiday lolling and vegging, there was a large amount of knitting accomplished. The little scarf that had given me such fits a few weeks ago was finished up in quick order on Friday. How could such a simple pattern have been so hard to start? In any case, the scarf turned out to be worth the effort and ended up being very easy and fun to knit. I just had to work out the pattern in my (at times) feeble brain. It's Holding Hands Feeding Ducks pattern knit with Manos Silk Blend...lovely soft yarn for a very wearable scarf.
The big knitting thrill this weekend was finishing Sunshine from Laura in the Feather and Fan pattern. Another easy to knit pattern made all the more beautiful by Laura's beautiful handspun yarn. Her yarn arrived on my doorstep this winter at just the time I needed a little sunshine. I'm so happy to have a lovely reminder of friendship and love, the two things that get one through the worst of times. Even in this heat I often have cold shoulders and I've learned to have a small shawl in my purse...just in case. Laura dyed the roving and spun the yarn in wonderful citrusy colors that are perfect for summer.
Blogland has brought such rich friendships my way. Thank you everyone for your good wishes and support for Smith, too. We are very blessed.
