Eye Candy Friday and a finished object...

Started: 3/20/16
Finished 7/24/16
Pattern: Castra by Anthony Casalena
Yarn: Marie Antoinette by Yarn Love in Tranquil Waters

Overall, it was an enjoyable knit. I'm going to look at this other patterns by this designer to see if there's another one that looks interesting.

On to the eye candy. The squash plants continue to set blossoms and are busy producing squash.

Up this weekend: Absolutely no plans!

There are always crafty things to do. I should finish winding the new warp for the big loom and get that going.  I could also look at my knitting WIPs and my queued projects to determine which one to work on next. I have a candidate in mind for a new project, but I need to track down the yarn and the pattern.

I'd really love to just hang out and read!
