There I was, once again, knitting along and all around seeing the same patterns and colors that were in the yarn in my hands. There really wasn't much time for knitting while in Jackson and there was far too much ripping, reknitting, and repairing mistakes so, in the end, not much progress was made. Since we were towing a big, heavy trailer full of furniture, C did all the driving, leaving plenty of time for knitting and gazing out the window. It's the Ene's Shawl from Scarf Style, looking a little lumpy from being scrunched up in and pulled out of my bag all week, knit from Knit Picks' Lace Weight Merino Bare, dyed in the spring time with purple Cottonwood tree catkins from our place and along the river nearby, same as the trees seen growing along the river bottom in the distance in the left hand picture above, second row from the bottom.
It killed me not to stop and pick wild sunflowers and the yellow blooming rabbit brush to put in the dyepot when we returned home. I know C would have stopped if I'd asked but the trip home was long enough as it was. Besides, they both grow in a few spots around here, but in MUCH smaller quantities and sizes.
