Scattered Storms, Scattered Thoughts

 Yarn in a bin.
Doesn't it look soft? 

I'm using Berroco Vintage for my latest Trap. Dark colors but you'll like the effect.  

I've  also decided to cast on for a Speck Butterfly Shrug.
I've had the yarn  (Classic elite Chesapeake)  since the yarn sale at my local shop in April.  It is a cotton/merino blend. 
It is kind of a boring brown color…..
this may hamper progress…
and I'm blaming Chan for my sudden desire to knit with pink, or Pank as she says.  
If I keep up with my steps I'll let myself buy Pank Koigu for the next Trap. 
Speaking of steps, I'm using my snowshoe poles when I do my walks.
They call this Nordic walking.  
I see more and people using them. 
Finally, due to Rozzy's fragile state,
I'm not fostering kittens this summer. 
When I saw this shirt I had to buy it. 

Stormy steamy weather expected here today.
I'm off to rescue a damsel in distress. 
A young thang, new to Chicago, got her car towed yesterday and needs a ride to pick it up.  
Ah woman power……
it is good to rescue one another :)

You are a good friend and neighbor! I have been rescued by new friends in the past and welcome the opportunity to pay-it-forward. It's a great way to live!

Snuggles to Rozzie. I love the t-shirt.

Hello Kathy

I see people using those poles here too. Usually elderly people up on the cliff walks. We also have the scattered storms forecast but nothing has happened as yet. I really do hope it happens though,rain that is because this looks more and more like a desert city!!! . That is what I call yummy yarn and yes it looks soft.
keep well

I'm looking forward to pics of the next scarf...in browns, eh?

Keep walking... keep knitting... a good combination.

Oh, I like the t-shirt too. What a cool design. I think I would have purchased it too!!

I'm glad you are helping a damsel in distress. Way to go!

I hope the storms weren't too hard on you. We had some spectacular heat lightning last night, and about an hour south of us there were some nasty tornados. Ah, summer!

You are the best helping her out, she must feel alone in the big city.

Hurrah for Woman Power! I've relied on women friends many times to help me through some rough patches.

Several of my friends use poles when walking. I've tried them and can't get into the rhythm.

You cannot go wrong with MadTosh. If I had to limit myself to one brand of yarn, that would probably be it.

I have a friend that is fostering four kittens this summer that all have a respiratory infection. She's running a mini animal hospital. She's doing it because her husband won't let her get a dog. That will teach him.

Berocco Vintage is great and so is Koigu. Can't wait to see the latest Trap. Those needles of yours are busy. Hope your day was a good one and not too wet!

Dang, I love the yarn, love that you are trap obsessed. I think the t-shirt is a very cool design and I want you to send a cuddle to your cat. Do you use your poles on trails and sidewalk alike?
