Very rainy here--we're expected to get 2-3 inches over a 24 hour period.
We're having the neighbors over tonight for a social distancing pizza party! We hope the rain will stop but worst case scenario we'll have it in our big and bright garage (we have a white floor and bright lights and it feels like your basement when you were in middle school). As I mentioned before, several neighbors are leaving for warmer climes and we want to gather before they depart.
It has definitely felt like fall here--but we don't have the fall colors, which I miss. We have many evergreens and then a bunch of alders that have leaves that turn brown and fall off. I guess that's the trade off of living on the coast.
The Botanic Shawl blocked out nicely, even without blocking wires, and I'm really happy with it.
And I couldn't wait to cast on for Bee's Knees. There were 247 stitches in the cast on, and right now I'm knitting the ribbing. This is a 'pay attention' project as there are cables and fancy stitches. But I love the color (which is hugely out of my comfort zone box place) and I think it will be a fun knit.
