Yarn Along ~ Another Sunday Sweater

I'm knitting another Sunday Sweater.  The summer started off cool and I thought Rowan could use another cardigan, naturally the weather has turned to hot and humid.  I'm knitting it with a Knit Picks cotton/linen blend and after some thinking decided this version will have short sleeves so it will see some wear over the summer.  I knit some extra lace repeats to allow for shrinkage with the cotton yarn.  I'm reading a copy of The Red Tent borrowed suitably from my mom, it's  enjoyable so far.

Join Ginny for the Yarn Along to collect some knitting and reading inspiration.

The Weekend Past

Breakfast in a (indoor) tent 

A big batch of homemade yogurt (4L of milk) also providing a big batch of whey

Checking the garden and pulling weeds (so much easier after a heavy rain)...could my soil be any rockier?
