Reyna Finished and Search for Mystery Series

     A couple days after my artist friend Rockey passed peacefully beyond I finished my Reyna Shawl in Malabrigo Mechita in Whales Road.  I did a good portion of it at his table, keeping him company or watching his monitor (he had opted to pass away at 87 at home).  I blocked it and wore it for the first time to his Memorial last Sunday.  Next Sunday the citywide Memorial is taking place and I'll wear it with my tie-dye dress and sing "Into The West" for him.

     I'm off to The Adirondack Mountains in Upstate New York next week.   A yearly trek for all our family members.  I'll get to see my older kids that live back East (I live in Colorado) and enjoy endless woods and streams.  I'll be gone most of July so enjoy yourselves and knit away!

    I'm working on reading still "Track of the Cat" (Anna Pigeon Mysteries Book 1)  and I'll be looking for more in the series in my local used bookshop where I have lots of credit from turned in books.  I'm enjoying the mystery and I like the descriptions of nature throughout.  I thought a good book series for vacation.
