We had a big hail storm this afternoon, along with some flash flooding. The trees in our front yard were standing in probably 4-6 inches of water from all the rain. It was crazy.
The hail, some as large as foosballs, damaged lots of squash and cucumber plants in our garden. Hopefully everything will come back in time. They look pretty sad right now, though.
However, when it’s dark and stormy out, I love to cuddle up with my kids and knit. I decided to pull out my farmhouse shawl and knit on it a bit…and I’m loving it!
Because I’m using a worsted weight yarn it’s moving along quickly, which makes this a really fun and satisfying knit. And I looooove this shade of pink. It’s a light blush pink, probably my very favorite color. It is so feminine and delicate.
I cannot wait to get this shawl off my needles. It gets chilly here in the evenings and I look forward to evening walks with my mom when I can wrap this around my shoulders.
