Off the Needles

 I finished the washcloth in time to tie it to the baby gift!
 The masterpiece of a sock, Gladys, is off the needles and its mate is cast on!
 It is really a great marriage of color and texture!
 Over the weekend, we discovered a tortoise and the boys ran with him down the lane next to our house!
Later we picked blackberries;  the rains in their seasons are bringing in a good crop!
