I’m tired. Mum and Charlie and I went to Sauvie Island again. We went to the ponds (and island) at the center of the island. Where there was lots of wild grass and wildflowers:

Charlie had fun at several of the ponds. He even tried to help me catch frogs.

(he was better at scaring them off than catching them, but don’t tell him that)

Umm, from there we went to a lot of farms…

fields of wheat

And bought fruit and saw baby bunnies,

Brahma and long-horns moos, which were annoyed to be photographed:

And then a U-pick place:

From there we came home, along the southern dike:

I worked on Geraldine #1 and am about to BO the cuff:

And the pies we made with the blueberries we picked today are baking right now.

Ick. This post is like a 3rd grader’s “What I Did This Summer” paper. I’ll do better tomorrow, I promise. I think I’ll go and BO those socks, as they don’t require an sort of coherence.

About the Author fyberduck

I love socks, lace, and all sorts of ‘traditional’ knitting subjects. I studied Classics and textile history (independent minor) at Uni and have a love of anything ancient. That said, I also like to mix it up with modern shapes and silhouettes, often with a little tradition thrown in for fun.
