I went summer clothes shopping crazy at Target this week too, but I'm not regretting it a bit. I found the skirts I'm going to live in this summer and bought four different colors in the one style, and two in the other. Done and done. I don't know about you, but I prefer skirts to shorts these days. Not sure if it's an age thing or a comfort thing, or a bit of both, but skirts are definitely my favorite.
We had over four inches of rain over the past three days, but it stopped during the night and while it's not exactly sunny, it's a lovely, cool and breezy morning, perfect for opening all of the windows. Steve and I went to the Portsmouth Library book sale yesterday and then walked along the waterfront. There was a farmer's market and flea market going on as well, where I bought a bunch of lavender, an old market basket, and a wooden rolling pin. The lavender bunch was so pretty, that I took multiple photos of it.
Here it is with the kimono at a coffee shop,
in the basket on the river walk,
sticking out of my knitting bag, before I'd bought the basket,
Cheeky little bunch!
Obviously I'm still working on the baby kimono, but should be finished soon. Not sure why it's taking me so long, as it's really a quick knit. Must be all the running around I'm doing. Luckily, I'll be back at work tomorrow, and will be able to get some work done on it while my students are taking their last SOL test!
