Over the weekend I visited the Oakville Grocery for a pause of knitting and a cup of artisan dark roast coffee, and was lucky to get my favorite bench in the shade outside. Here nearly finished with the last of the Lincoln Street sleeveless tops I have been knitting for weeks, and having had to knit Miss Fifteen’s over a second time. It is perfect timing for Miss Fifteen was in a big summer musical production of Mary Poppins, rehearsing six weeks out of her summer vacation, and the show was this last weekend. The performance was great, but now that its over, this means finally we can have our long-awaited Summer photo shoot, so next post you will see them on the actual Lincoln Street modelling the design I released earlier this month.
But after this photo shoot, the days are few before Miss Eighteen leaves for college, and things will just be changing like crazy. We might get our foundation to the house started this Autumn as well, but still all of that is up in the air. I will be distracting myself while ascending again into another pattern writing frenzy, one which I have been anxious to get to for several months. It will involve a lot of knitting while walking through the late summer, up early chasing the morning dew as it evaporates into the droning heat of August. And so I guess these few blissful morning pauses of coffee at the Oakville Grocery must be savored as they come. I hope you all are finding your moments of bliss too!
