Mom is here! It is wonderful to be together. The first evening of her visit mom showed me the gorgeous yarn she bought at the Fiber Frolic to make mittens for Sebastian.
The wool and alpaca yarn by Good Karma Farm of Belfast, Maine is not only pretty for the eye but soft as can be.
Whenever we get together we seem to have skeins of yarn to wind into balls and it is so cozy to do it together. Mom holds while I wind. We chatter away, occasionally pausing to oh and ah over the yarn.
One ball done, and now it is my turn. I had a few balls to wind too. Including the pretty green in the front that I got from Ballee.
Now it is time to get knitting... and visiting.
And gardening... mom helped Sebastian to dig and prepare the soil, spread out the compost we have been making all spring, and planting seeds. It is a bit late in the season but hopefully we will get enough sunshine that some seeds might grow up into plants to harvest before the cold hits.
These are happy days here!
