Enjoying summer.....

With all the rain and just cooler weather, we have all been waiting for summer to arrive.  It has played hide and seek up until now.  Summer is finally warming up.

It brought us unexpected visitors, so we took them to see one of great wonders, it was just a flying visit,
A quilt show within a local church.
Farmers markets every saturday.  They have some interesting vendors....
 Even a hundred years ago, socks could be knitted fast, if one had one of these knitting machines.
 This is a sock knitter, made from cast iron.
 From the top, showing the knitting in process.
This is what it looks like, closed for the knitting process.
The finished socks, on offer.  In all the colours of the rainbow..., to find the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.


  1. I believe you found gold in the church quilt show. Those are favourites of mine.

  2. This hermit thanks you so much for the quilt show...grin. All so lovely.
