Can you believe we missed seeing this example of yarnbombing at the baseball stadium? Thanks to our son's friend we at least got to see a photo. Fun, huh?
Two weekends ago we headed across our mountains to Spokane in search of sun....and yarn. We found both. If you get a chance, visit Paradise Fibers either online or in person. You may be overwhelmed with all the choices though.

The Box Canyon bridge was completed in 1910, the same year Dad was born.
Driving back home, we saw lots of "amber waves of grain!" And yes, it was still cloudy when we got home, so we fully appreciated our brief escape to the sunshine.
Be careful what you wish for! We finally got some warm weather last weekend. On Sunday the thermometer hit 93 degrees, breaking a 35 year record ! The day before, we headed for a spot we knew would be cool, Deception Pass. First we stopped in Mount Vernon at their Saturday Farmer's Market,
and then we checked out another very nice yarn shop called Wild Fibers. Be sure to visit if you're ever in the area!
|How many people could circle this tree?|
We walked down to the beach and saw lots of other folks who'd also come down here to cool off. You can see both sections of the bridge from this spot. It carries lots of traffic every day. After a pleasant afternoon, we headed back home, and on Monday morning our clouds were back. It was a very quick summer!
