Thanks, Ribby, and Things I'll Miss about Summer!

Thank you to everyone who left nice comments about my Diamond Patch. I'm very Happy with it. I want to get back to everyone, but am catching a cold (fever, sore throat) so it may take a few days. I had a few draft posts going so thought I could manage to lump them together.

I'm going to use my lavender Galway for.....Ribby! I think part of my problem with this yarn is I like it, but as far as the color goes tend to like bluer purples. This is true lavender and in some lights seems to be fluorescent or something. I'll just have to figure out what part of the day I should work on it.

Potential WIP
A blogger friend who's not into ponchos gave the pattern for The Mystic Isles Poncho. Originally I was going to make it in Bernat BlarneySpun (Grey Flannel) but I just don't have enough and can't figure out a way to work the decreases to make it work. I had an Excel spreadsheet going, figuring out the number of skeins it would take based on the 1 skein I had knitted. I thought Maybe I'd do the collar and bottom edging in a different color, but decided not too. So, Off to one of my favorite EBay shops, dashell007's The Wool Shoppe for Briggs and Little Heritage in Light Grey. I'll have enough I can make it a little longer and cozier if need be!

Things I'll miss about Summer!
Even though we have quite a few warm days ahead of us the sun is setting a little earlier reminding us fall is on it's way. I'm so blessed to have such a wonderful family and home. We'll still see a lot of the creatures below for awhile, but they are just so much fun.

This Dragonfly was hanging on to the tree limb, wings stretched out in pretty significant wind. Must of felt good.

In California, Hummingbirds stay year round, but we don't see them as much.

Okay, these clowns are just funny! I leave fruit and nuts out for them to divert them from the fruit we want to eat. The one on the fence post is teasing the dogs on both sides of the fence. Silly thing! I wonder if he wants to know where they are so they don't scare him.

September Challenge
I'm thinking about what two projects (already started) I want to complete for the September Challenge. The August Challenge is converting to September Challenge tomorrow. Maybe I should start a few more before midnight tonight to have even more choices ;-). It will include a sweater I started for my Hubby (Guansey). I should also say the crocheted purse. I just need to sew the lining and have been procrastinating on that.
