Is it a balloon? a basketball?
No. It's a mushroom! I'm told that it's not even a record-breaking mushroom in these parts, but it sure looks like it should be! DH spotted this giant puffball in our ravine when returning from a walk with Mickey. Mdd went down later to harvest it and will take it to school (a little extra credit never hurts) for her "You In Nature" class and where her teacher will actually prepare it and they'll all get a taste. Looks like there should be plenty to go around. I don't recall that I've ever had puffballs, specifically, but I have had other types of wild mushrooms and fungi in the past, as well as fiddle-head ferns and cattails in spring, and, well, YUM!
I got a lot done around the house yesterday. Cleaning, organizing, tossing, filing... no blocking of the Kershawl, but the top of my washer and half the dryer are visible and lint-free! For fibery fun, I did fondle the stash a bit -- boxed and bagged and organized that, too, and decided that I don't need any more right now. Not that I'd turn any away at the door.
New Knitty -- I've only had the quickest glance at patterns, but I think I'm going to feel the love. Oh yeah.
