Super soft Merino wool and Silk blend sock yarn, dyed in the colors suggested by the four elements. Clockwise from top left: Wind is a tornadic blend of greys, blacks, purples, and flashes of fushia and yellow. Fire contains yellow, red, fushia, and orange hues. Earth explores the brown tones. Water is a beautiful swimming cove of clear blues. Each is 440 yards, 100g. Plenty for socks, scarf, mittens, whatever!

Speaking of elements, I'd like to say that the wind took this tree limb down, but it really was due to all the cherries on it. (It's a black cherry).

It is hard to see in the picture, but that is completely blocking our neighbor's drive. Our tree, though, so we had to chop it up in nearly 90 degree weather. Air conditioning never felt so good.

Earlier that morning, here's the same view:

These twin fawns were born on our property in June, and are getting quite large now. Their mother likes to gnaw on my green beans through the fence. Although not tame, the deer are not terribly afraid. I was maybe 20 feet away when I snapped this picture, and had to walk a fair ways first.
