Cool green thoughts to everyone being heat-stroked
This interesting hardscape is tucked back behind the physics building. You have to walk clear around the building to get here, and it faces a corner of the woods. It would be a marvelous place for -oh- poetry reading on a warm summer night. I have no idea why it was constructed.
The birches are mossy and often lichened over. There is a myth that moss grows on the north side of trees. Around here, it grows on the outside of trees. And rocks. And buildings. And cars if you don't wash them often enough. And winos. (They don't ever wash often enough.) That's why things are so very verdant around here.
On the knitting front, I started the sweater sleeves today.
On the writing front, the artist who is working on the cover for my second Sanna book is just about done, and the picture is SO COOL!!!!
Thanks to everyone for the advice and input about cashmerino baby jackets. I'm gonna do it. I'm getting some silk indigo dyed to knit a tuxeudo vest for DH. I have been looking for dark silk all over town and not only does no one carry it, they can't be bothered to order it for me. I could go online and order it, but there is a woman who does dying, lives about a mile from me, and has three adorable children to support. I figured, why not keep the money in the neighborhood? Her youngest is an darling two-year-old who would look good enough to eat in a nice stripey sweater. so much to knit, so little time!
