The scarf is off the needles and sometime this weekend I'll block it. Fingers crossed that it softens up, I have a feeling it will. Do you see that bit of sparkle? Beads!! They are strategically placed at the edges while binding off. It was fun placing them and now I have a burning desire to bead more knits.
It was gloomy and dreary yesterday so much so that I felt sad. I tend to not be influenced by daylight shortening in the fall and winter, maybe because I am thrilled there's a chance of snow. I eagerly await the short days and snuggle in after dinner with knitting and tea. I briefly miss the after dinner walks but just barely, I have a love/hate relationship with exercise.
Come spring and yes it is spring here, I am a sponge to the returning sunny days, blue skies and mild breezes that herald in the beginning of nature's growth. Thursday was sunny so much so that I sat outside, closed my eyes and absorbed the beauty. It was wonderful-even Frodo joined me!
So that brings me back to yesterday, I was feeling sad, I kept looking at the clouds and wondering why I was miserable all because of the weather. Standing there, questioning the sky I decided to look down. With the clouds and the drizzle I found the wild violets that sprinkle our hill ready to bloom. Spots of purple were peaking out amid the grass and weeds.
And then, I felt happy and content :)
Have a lovely weekend!
