I love getting up at the crack of dawn on Saturday morning, just after the sun begins to warm the earth, to get first pick of the fresh picked dahlias, green beans, kale, carrots, and strawberries at the Farmer’s Market.
They’re great, but let’s be real – the thing that really gets me up out of bed that early on a Saturday morning is for the dark roast coffee and fresh baked cinnamon rolls oozing with frosting and butter.
One of those Saturday afternoons, I was digging though my stash for another project and noticed that my basket of scraps looked just like the colors and textures of the flowers, berries, and vegetables at the market. I immediately cast on with a small ball of hand spun and other random bits of my hand dyed wools – and I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out.
