Hearts, Sheep and Sunshine


My sister made those heart puffs last year for me, aren't they cute?  That sheep, whose name is Gertie, was a lovely gift from a knitting friend.  She celebrates how many years we all have been knitting together in our knitting group.  I love my little sheep and she looks grand on my table.

This weekend we will be experiencing another arctic air mass, poor Frodo I just don't think he can tremble any more than he already does.  He's longing for those summer days of rabbit chasing and sunbathing.  So far, I'm good with the weather.  When we get to the sloppiness of April well then I might be grumbling a bit.

February sunshine and longer days make for a happy home.  I walk into the family room or the living room and notice the brightness of the day, sunbeams playing across a sofa or end table.  In a few short weeks, snow storms will melt as quickly as the arrive and birds will be busy singing and nest building.  All Good.

The orange sweater is drying, I still need to sew on some buttons and do the photo shoot, hopefully by next week.  For the past few days, I've been contemplating a cowl with aran weight yarn.  Yup, pretty darn chunky for my tastes but the thought of being done in a day has me mesmerized. It's the little things in life, right?


Have a great weekend!

  5. I am enjoying the extra light and sunshine too Karen. The only problem with sunshine this time of year is that is usually means it is pretty darn cold outside, and it is! I love your hearts. Enjoy your weekend.

  7. That little sheep and the hearts are just adorable! I am loving those longer days, now it just needs to warm up a bit. :-) They are predicting some snow for our area next week, but so far we haven't really had any real snow to speak of. Have a happy Valentine's day and a good weekend!

  9. I'm all about being ready for spring. I've been hearing Robins chirping around our home since the weekend. No kidding! It was 9 degrees here this morning and I heard them! I've also been noticing that the grass is beginning to green up under the snow.

    Love little Gertie. She is adorable!

  14. Can't wait to see the finished sweater! I feel for Frodo-my own dogs keep getting their hopes up that the next time they go outside it won't be as cold, but no such luck yet!

  15. Those hearts are stunning and the little woolly sheep a delight. There is nothing nicer than a gift made with love. Have a great weekend.

  16. Oh it is the little things in life FOR SURE!!! Your heart puffs are darling. Fireman has been really good about appreciating the sun setting a bit later each day. I think going to Florida helped us both quite a bit

  18. Sheep are just so darn cute! It's cold here, too, barely above 0!
    Looking forward to seeing your sweater!

  20. Have a wonderful Valentine's weekend, Karen. Stay warm, too! Love that sweater.

  21. I hope you have a wonderful weekend too Karen. It sounds like there will be lots of cosy knitting. We still haven't had any snow worth mentioning even though I ordered plenty of yarn and books in advance and stocked the cupboard and freezer ready to get snowed in. The cowl sounds good, when it's cold I live in a lovely warm icelandic lopi yarn one that keeps me toasty.
    Happy valentines day,

  23. Poor Frodo! He and I would be shivering together! I, too, am loving the slightly longer days... the sun seems stronger... and brighter... especially after a few gray days! Can't wait to see the sweater! Aran IS heavy for you! ;) Sometimes a little QUICK and instant gratification are in order. blessings ~ tanna

  27. A project in a day! So mesmerizing. We have the frigid arctic air where I live, too, so the next two days will be a struggle to climb out of bed. Also, I am excited to see how your sweater finished!
