How was your weekend? I hope as fun as mine. I stayed home! Going away for a weekend like last weekend makes me love staying at home for a weekend. I did not go anywhere yesterday. I wound up the above yarn that was a gift from my daughter and son in law. There is no business name on the tag, just "kettle dyed" Lancaster County Pa. It's a superwash wool sock blend - ah, heavenly. I'm not quite sure what I'll be knitting.
For now I like to sit and look at it. And so does Holly.
In my studio room, I had to cover all the pretty baskets of yarn with a towel because someone was nibbling like a little rat. Grr. I think I won that battle.
Yesterday, I sketched a bit - still trying to stop the negative dialogue and focus on what I like and what I'm learning. I also pulled out the watercolors and dabbled a bit. Yikes, that was a hot mess of thinking I don't know what I'm doing!
However, I was once a beginner knitter as a child/teen and look at me now. So I've got lots of time to learn and grow.
I watched a few episodes of Dr. Who with Peter Capaldi as The Doctor. I have to say I'm a hard core Whovian. I love the stories, the time traveling, the plot twists and the geeky humor. I'm amused while I knit. Speaking of knitting, I cannot get enough of the True Colors Shawl. I love knitting it!
I have to force myself to take breaks when my hands hurt, I don't want a repetitive stress injury.
Today I attended 7:30 a.m. Mass and was once again thrilled that the music was absent. I believe I pay attention better! (and it's faster...)
Today has been an overcast cloudy day. We squeezed in a walk in the afternoon. I've read some and knitted more.
How was your weekend?
