I woke up to something shocking in Berkeley, California. I looked out the window and there was no fog! You cannot miss the effects of the drought here, although I do, strangely miss the morning fog.
I've been visiting Berkeley since 1977, when my friend Joni moved from the Chicago area to Berkeley, so it feels like my vacation home. I am used to gazing through the fog while I drink my morning coffee.
I had a long day of travel so I knew I needed good knitting. I chose to knit plain socks with this amazing yarn from Knit Circus, which is a Madison dyer.
And this is the book took for my travel reading. I found it at Politics and Prose in Washington, D.C., earlier this summer. It is about a Jewish woman who is orphaned during the Holocaust and raised in the Satmar tradition, which is a very strict Hasidic sect.
Coming soon: Pictures of a very pretty sock-in-progess and the Bay Area.
I'm checking in with Keep Calm Craft On and Yarn Along.
