Backwards and upside down

7 Small Shawls: T - 119 days and counting down.

Mercury is retrograde. I started realizing something was up when I was having problems with databases on Ravelry, 2checkout.com, iTunes and Blogger. I know this sounds weird, but honestly, every time something like this happens, it turns out Mercury is retrograde and playing tricks.

So...tonight I lost a post. It was, I thought, a pretty ok post. I'm not going to write it again. But since it's gone and I really wanted to show you something, y'all get to see the yarn tree in my front yard.
I was drying some yarn from my last club shipment.
It was hot outside (one of the few days this summer) and I had run out of room to dry all the skeins. So our Japanese maple turned out to be the prefect clean little drying rack.
The neighbors must think I'm a lunatic.

It makes me smile ! Indeed, your neighbours must have looked very surprised, but it's a very nice idea and it makes the garden suddenly very colorful ! Have a nice weekend

Actually, I think a yarn tree is probably the only kind I'm *not* allergic to... wonder where I can get one of my own?!

Rosemary, I LOVE the photographs of your "yarn tree"! You know, these would make fantastic cards (hint). My shop would be very interested in carrying these...

Maybe they just think you are decorating the yard to match the arbors full of ripening grapes!

How lovely! If only colorful skeins grew on trees. :)

That's a beautiful yarn tree! I wish my local nursery carried them. :-)
