this is the story of our life at "Rosevale on the Palouse Prairie" in eastern Washington State, and my love affair with all things fiber/fabric.
'BeanQueen' you might ask, well in my previous life I was the curator of the Phaseolus Germplasm Collection (beans native to the western hemisphere) in the United States. My lovely #2 sister gifted me with my 'autre nom'.

Monday, Monday - again!
We had a profitable weekend - profitable in the fruit department, I mean. On Saturday at the Moscow Farmer's Market I was able to get a box of cherries for my DD to can, some cherries, apricots, blueberries & peaches for "the Postman" & I, plus some cucumbers (ours are almost ready), tomatoes (ours are just now blooming so it'll be a while) and some corn (for on-the-cob goodness).
Then on Sunday we drove back up to the mountains and found some huckleberries - there weren't many, but we got 4 pints. There should be more in the future as there were green ones still on the bushes - some of which were quite tiny yet.
Here are photos of my knitting / spinng progress. I got in more tdf spinning (day 14 & 15) & sock KAL , plus finished the edging on my mobius KAL scarf (the photo of it is flat as "the Postman" hasn't taken a picture of me wearing it yet).
a photo of me wearing the mobius - I didn't take the time to make it look really nice, but it is a pretty thing.
