I saved the best for last!
At least I think so. I am a total sucker for browns.
I have our first green bean harvest cooking on the stove today. DH tells me his tomato plants are sitting in water....part of the garden is swamp land. We've had 7 inches of rain in the last 5 days. More is predicted for tomorrow. So far our basement is dry. We have lived here since 1977, and only once did we have wet basement problems. That was in 2008. I don't ever want to deal with that again!
Robin asked about the cowl pattern. As soon as I am at liberty, I will share information. I think it will eventually be available on ravelry - but it may be a bit of a wait.
