This weekend was filled with:
-walking! OH the walking, I've missed it and my body is slowly getting used to the exercise
-sunny skies that you just want to soak up the rays (but it's cold)
-all of my knitting projects are green-so you know what that means,
-starting a new project with purple
-spinach pesto with toasted almonds.....yum
-catching up with Downton Abbey and Elementary from the dvr
-catching up with the kids and their lives, in two weeks our daughter will be on spring break
-mundane tasks--bill paying, laundering, washing dishes, editing documents, and sweeping
-preparations for up coming classes that I'll be teaching
-backing up my photos onto a new hard drive after my husband's hard drive crashed and he lost most of the music data (from CDs) that he streams
-realizing that we need a back up of the back up :)
how was your weekend?
the above photo is a square sample of entrelac for a knitting class
Sounds like a busy weekend. And thanks for the prompt I will back up today!ReplyDelete
glad to be prompting! I'm sure my husband wished he had backed up his back up ;)Delete
Isn't it crazy that you need a backup for your backup. Lovely sample. And green will soon be predominant everywhere. And spring break already - will she come home?ReplyDelete
yes! she will come home for one week. I am looking forward to it, I have a deep desire to hit the outlets and she is my go to partner in crime :)Delete
"all of my knitting projects are green-so you know what that means.."ReplyDelete
does it mean you like green? ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha.
ahem. ok. How about that, perhaps, Spring is coming?
yes and yes! I like green and yes spring is here and yes I need another color on the needles ;)Delete
The sun is slowly starting to feel somewhat warm here too.ReplyDelete
entrelac!!! I would take your class in a flash, Karen! I don't know how to do this yet! and I bet you're a great teacher :)ReplyDelete
Oh that square is lovely and the colour is gorgeous too! I have heard the colour green calling me this week :) So exciting to have your daughter home for a week.ReplyDelete
entrelac and mitered squares....two of my favorite things!!!ReplyDelete
thanks for the backup reminder....how quickly i forget about that!
love that swatch you knitted!ReplyDelete
i've lost many files and complete projects (much was work-related, outch!!) in a crash, sorry it also happened to you! mine happened while i was trying to back up...
have a great new week!
Sounds like a wonderful weekend..ReplyDelete
What beautiful green! I don't know entrelac... Something to add to the list!ReplyDelete
Learning entrelac is on my list. Maybe I should come out for a class!ReplyDelete
Another reason for us to get together, I need to hire you as my knitting instructor! Your students are so blessed to have you Karen, you knitting is beautiful!ReplyDelete
That is a beautiful "spring" color of entrelac!! =) Glad you are enjoying your walks again. I've started back myself. Good for the soul as well as the body! ;) Have a great week. blessings ~ tannaReplyDelete
Don't you love Elementary? That is one of my new favorites. He's so wonderfully pedantic and quirky. I'm so impressed with your entrelac. I haven't tackled that one yet. And that green it gorgeous!ReplyDelete
Green. And purple. Love that! And is it spring break already? Wow...certainly does go by quickly when you're not the one studying, aye?! ;) I bet she (and you)are looking forward to that. Have a good week ~ and happy walking :)ReplyDelete
I love the entrelac! i have got to try that sometime...ReplyDelete
right now, i am knitting a lot of green and blues. i am thinking i might get some yellow in my rotation soon, too. P.S. I need to check out Elementary. I've heard it's great.ReplyDelete
We've got amazing skies with the moon out in the day but like you Amanda I'm finding it freezing...lovely for long walks when wrapped up well and knitting too. I learned a new crochet skill from my sister in law at the weekend so I'm dying to try that out on a scarf and really some green like your sample.ReplyDelete
Whoops sorry Karen..not sure why I called you Amanda...I think I need a coffee...ReplyDelete
Aren't you so glad spring is around the corner? I love seasons, even winter, but it is nice to venture out again!ReplyDelete
Elementary is one of my favorites!ReplyDelete
