I’ve got the blues…

And I love them! Blue is my favorite color. I’m still plugging away on the blue Ishbel and the blue Ruffle Tank. And now I’ve won some beautiful blue yarn from Lorajean at Knitted Wit.

It’s 400 yards of fingering weight sock yarn, colorway Blue Sky. Lorajean noted that I don’t knit socks, but that’s not completely true. What’s true is that I don’t knit socks with fingering weight yarn! Someday I may. But wouldn’t this blue make a gorgeous scarf or shawl?


I also harvested the first of the blueberries on Sunday when I got home from Carmel. I made blueberry cobbler, and we had it with vanilla ice cream for Father’s Day dessert. It was delicious! While I was picking the berries, I noticed a blue jay on the corner of my roof, with a big fat blueberry in his beak. I think there’s enough for all of us, but that was pretty cheeky of him!

  1. I agree, blue is a nice color. Have you decided what you’ll make with the yarn? Will you shock us by making socks with it? 🙂

  2. If you like peaches–have you ever mixed blueberries and peaches in cobbler–to die for.

  3. You must be like the luckiest person ever! You’re always winning things! 😉

    I can’t wait to see your blue Ishbel! I got pics of mine finally!

  4. Pretty yarn, but the blueberries – now that is the ticket. Home grown has got to be the best!

  5. Our blueberry bush is covered, I can’t wait but we’re eating raspberries until then. I love blue, too.

  6. Beautiful blues!!

    Our blueberries are far from being ready to pick! Lucky you!!

  7. mmm, cobbler and ice cream! I’ll have to do that when our black berries are done. It’s almost plum harvesting time. Shoot, you might be in Vietnam!

  8. Very pretty blues!

  9. Buejay. Blueberries. Oh how I wish there was a photo!

    PS. Your piano adventure sounded wonderful. Keep us posted on your “music camps”— I would love to attend one with you sometime!
