Lazy Sunday

I had every intention of writing yesterday and then it didn't happen. I was glued to the TV. The Canadian Open was very compelling. Was a Canadian going to win? David Hearn was so close. Then there was the Nascar race and the Jays game. After dinner we had Big Brother and Beach Flip.

I'm really excited about Rowan's Hemp Tweed - coming in August

A blend of 75% wool and 25% hemp, resulting in a modern tweed effect, soft to the touch yarn which is a joy to knit. Wool and hemp create 'breathable' knitted fabrics which are cool to wear in warm weather and warm in colder temperatures. Hemp fibre is resistant to stretching so does not distort with use and naturally softens with wear - hemp does not wear out it wears in! 

A collection of 14 designs by Lisa Richardson for men and women using Rowan’s New Yarn ‘Hemp Tweed’.

Here are a few pictures that were supposed to be in yesterday's post.

The wind wasn't cooperating but we have 2 flags in front of the store again. One bracket was broken so Beth and I went to the flea market in Myrtle Beach to get another.
Our neighbours planted sunflowers at the beginning of summer and they are huge. I want some in our yard.
The boys were comfortable last night. They love the tile floor. It isn't soft but it is really cold to lie on.

I'm writing early because Beth and I might golf later today. We need to meet with our builder over something pretty major and then we hope to hit the course. Beth is golfing in her Club Championship this weekend and needs a bit of practice. She golfed yesterday and didn't have her A game. I think she might tell you that she didn't have her B or C game either.
