Perhaps, after all, our best thoughts come when we are alone. It is good to listen . . . to the brook running cool over polished stones, to bees drowsy with the weight of pollen. If we attend to the music of the earth, we reach serenity. And then, in some unexplained way, we share it with others.

I'm test knitting a shawl design by Clare Devine. It's a lovely pattern and I'm eager to get moving onward very soon to the applied border section. This is my progress as of this morning.
As I said in my latest knitting video, I've misplaced the ball band to the yarn and haven't a clue what colorway it is or who made it. So frustrating because I am in love with everything about it and would like to get more sometime. I still have one more place to look where lost yarn ball bands go in my cupboard, so fingers crossed. Have you ever test knit a pattern for a designer? It's a fun process and sometimes harder than others, depending on design and designer's draft of instructions.
As I type, the morning sunshine is flowing in and out of the swaying tree branches. Birds are already chirping their song and shadows are dancing on the nearby footpath. There's something golden about late summer mornings. August is saying it's not ready to close summer's door just yet .. there's plenty of warmness yet to surround.
