Summer knitting classes begin Monday at Freeman House. I'm so looking forward to them. This afternoon I began preparations in earnest, winding small, sky-blue balls of yarn and stitching up knitting bags for each of the "students".
I should be finished with class prep, but I kept getting interrupted by the summer sun as it shifted and bounced its soft, buttery light all through the dining room. It was so peaceful - the waves of light and the rhythmic hum of the wool winder.
I've decided to do summery refreshments each week for the knitters. I'm thinking we'll ease into the five sessions with chilled Strawberry Soup. I'm picturing it garnished with little balls of vanilla bean ice cream and bright, fresh sprigs of mint. Seems like a fitting start to a quiet and warm summer of knitting, doesn't it?
