Late summer flowers and an FO...

Here's a quick knit. The pattern is called "Off to the Races Scarf" by Patricia Bishop and can be found on Ravelry for a very affordable price.As the name implies, this project is FAST. I started this scarf 2 days ago and now it's done. It's knitted out of bulky cotton/wool blend yarn that I harvested from a sweater. The yarn was held doubled for even more bulkiness and it was knit on a pair of US size 15 knitting needles. It'll be a while until I can wear it as we are still experiencing temperatures in the 90's.

My good friend's husband has not one, but TWO green thumbs. Here are just a few of the flowers growing in their well-tended garden.

A romp in the garden isn't nearly as fun without a dog or two to keep you company.
