We're muddling through the week, quieter without Franz. Nancy came over to dye yesterday. She was trying to recreate my Jungle colorway with better yarn than the knitpicks I used. I was trying for...? I am not sure what. Nancy got a rainbow concoction, I got a candy store. But we were both using new techniques on new yarn, so it was fun and successful in its own way. I strongly suspect both Nancy and I will be doing more dyeing.
I've been giving Zach some Scrabble lessons. I want more competition. Think I will go roust him from surfing and make him play a game before it gets too late. First I will leave you with some views of my neighborhood's future fire station. Any opinion expressed in the photos is not necessarily shared by this blogger.
