Foretelling the Future

In knitting news,  I have finished another scarf. This one is in Fiesta Yarns Insignia La Boheme. it's a two strand combination of a rayon boucle with a mohair that is as close to looking like a metallic as a yarn without any metallic component can be. Sparkly, pretty and soft, it's the sort of scarf that takes the place of a necklace. Once I got it out the skein and into a ball (tricky) it knitted up quickly in garter stitch on #9 straight needles. I think it will be a lot of fun to wear. The yarn has been marinating in my stash for several months after a trip to the wonderful Eva's Yarn Shop in Fairhaven. I am blowing through my stash these days. I will soon have a reasonable excuse for yarn shopping.

Here's the gratuitous picture of The Amazing Roxanne that some people ( Richard) require.

Any time I think I've heard of every possible means of divination along comes another surprise. Jemima Packington tells the future by means of asparagus. You can see her in person April 23 at the British Asparagus Festival.

What a great picture of the Evil Prairie Pup! Bless her.

My thinking is that the animals and plants will know before we do, but they won't be telling us very much.

You have such a lovely home. And your own photos can be made into art on canvas at Costco. Did you know that?
