If Vincent wore jeans, they’d be in the state of paint. You know it. Passionate painter that he was, I doubt he was immaculate in his work clothes. But, you never know. In my imagination, he’s as bad as me, wiping his fingers on his thighs after touching up a stroke. Any way, I named this skein for Vincent. Van Gogh’s Blue Jeans. It’s part of the Dove’s Roost Yarns Impressionist Fall Series. 2.4 oz of 100% Gulf Coast Native spun into 266 yards of a soft fingering weight 2-ply.
I caught him underneath the tree.
It’s that time of year. Clearin’ out the weeds and prickly pear – which grows into giant mounds that have to be dug out. Time to plant some winter grasses – rye at least, so the sheep have some thing green on their salad plates this winter. Tom has been the hero, doin’ the bush-hoggin’ and diggin’ and rakin’. My contribution was pickin’ up some chopped dog fennel, getting prickers in my fingers, and takin’ some pictures. Here’s one of my favorites…Ol’ Smitty boy, Fergie the tractor, and Raymond, who found the cart full of weeds and cactus, well, just irresistible.
I admit, I did a new thing today. I used red pears in the pear-ginger jam. I know, I know, not a huge deal…but WOW. How pretty is this jam? Five pints down. Ah.
