Did you have a nice weekend? Here in the States, it was a three-day weekend for a lot of us, to honor Memorial Day and all those who gave their lives so that we can live in the land of the free. I am fortunate that none of my close friends or family who have served – or are serving – have made the ultimate sacrifice, but war always has a human toll. My deepest, heart-felt thanks to those who serve and have served, including their loved ones holding down the fort at home.
We had a quiet day. I talked to the photo of my dad in his (Marine Corps) utilities, taken not long after he enlisted. Then we – Dad’s photo, the fur-girls and I – watched A Few Good Men. (I thought I had scanned that photo of Dad, but I don’t see it in Flickr. Sorry.) I always cry at the end when Harold salutes Tom Cruise’s character…
Saturday, I ventured up to Dog House Yarns. I snagged some Kollage Riveting in the sport weight, in the sand hue. It’s destined to be a little shrug, most likely Plymouth 1741. In case you didn’t click over, Riveting is made from old jeans. Given how much I love denim, this delights me far more than it should. I’m pretty sure the cotton will be hard on my hands while I’m knitting, but that’s okay; it’ll be worth it.
Has anyone else fallen down The Webster at Target rabbit hole?! I was pleasantly surprised to find a pretty good selection at my local store on Saturday, and this little number had to come live with me.
There were several other items I would have snatched up if I wasn’t practicing some restraint and if they’d had what caught my eye in my size.
Why yes, this is the summer of the tee-shirt dress it seems. This makes #4 for me, and we won’t talk about how many other summer dresses I own. I love pulling on a dress, shoving my feet in some sandals and calling myself dressed.
I also love the colors in this dress. My first formal dress was a seafoam green, and hunter green is a staple in my wardrobe. I’m hung up on coral, and I always prefer cream over white, so what’s not to love?!
