The Bow Little Market (farmer's market) had a fiber day.  I purchased this yarn bowl, which is taller than the typical yarn bowl.  I found the taller size very handy, as I could place my project on the bowl, too.

This is first project knit, using the yarn bowl.  I completed it in 16 days, which is pretty fast for me.

August Afternoon

Having a beverage on the back porch.  Gary's walker is handy for a beverage table.

Outside the Hermitage
Had 2 days in Saint Petersburg.  The first day, I went to the Fabrage Egg Museum.  Some of eggs are shown with the center surprise outside the egg.  Also, saw the French Impressionist portion in the Hermitage.  The second day, I went to the Hermitage, a huge art museum.  There are 3 million pieces of art displayed, I only saw a small portion.  On the way back to the cruise ship, a stop for souvenirs.  I had a taste of Russian Vodka.  The days were warm in Russia.

Rostock, Germany
