Yarn Along...But Mostly Some Lavender...And Some Liddy

I've been wanting to take some pictures of the lavender garden and needed a Yarn Along shot so decided to try to combine the two.  

The shawl is coming along nicely, but is big enough now that there's no way to really spread it out to see.  I'm almost finished with Clue 3 (some marathon knitting over the last couple of days while Tim is having some work done up at the barn) and today is the big reveal for Clue 4, which I think will be the edging.  Can't wait!

I switched to the medium gray...and wish I'd had enough of the white to do the whole thing in one solid, boring, oh so predictably me color.  I was a bit afraid of that, but I'm "knitting on with confidence" because I do like both grays and I'm thinking hoping that when I add in the third gray it's going to miraculously all come together.  

The bees are light this year :-/.  Stella and I are talking about setting up a hive "down in the valley" where maybe they'd be (a little) more protected from pesticides and other farm chemicals than they maybe are "up on the hill".  

My loyal gardening companions.

Books this week...I've been on a big Bill Bryson kick lately.  He does such a fun job reading his stories and I've listened to The Life and Times of The Thunderbolt Kid and am re-listening to A Walk in the Woods: Rediscovering America on the Appalachian Trail.  Both are classics for sure and quite knittable :-D.
