On Saturday we had lunch with our son and his girlfriend, it was so nice to see them and spend the afternoon with them. Hopefully we will have more visits like this until summertime when he moves to where ever he gets a job. He's been interviewing so it's early days.
Yesterday after Mass, grocery run and chores, my friends came over for some much needed knitting time. I do love being with them immensely! I worked on the felix sweater most of the time. I am loving how fast it is knitting up!
Last night I switched to working on my purple sweater. I ordered some twist shorties from Handsome fibers. They are generous with their coupons. Anyways, I just didn't feel like doing the sleeves on dpns so I thought I'd give the twist shorties a try. This set will work with my other sets by the same company. I love this style of needle!
How was your weekend?
I'm keeping up the good thoughts that your son finds a job nearby. And knitting and brownies are the perfect combination!ReplyDelete
A full weekend for you! I did a tiny bit of knitting this weekend and managed to get all the color work on my sweater finished! Now it is the perfect "read while knitting" knit! Good thing, I have a library book due on Wednesday! :)ReplyDelete
I have a Felix pullover on my wish list but I am so close to finishing my Dominy. Trying to stick with it since I am on the upper yoke on this bottom up sweater.ReplyDelete
My weekend was very wet! But filled with knitting and getting together with a friend. Fun! Your weekend sounds really nice too.ReplyDelete
The Twist shorties sound like a much easier way to go that fiddling with 5 needles.ReplyDelete
mmm those brownies look so good..ReplyDelete
Nice that you're getting so much time with your son and his girl friend.
Gorgeous sun rise or set... Simply beautiful...ReplyDelete
Super idea! Switch around with your knitting. Saves you from becoming really bored with one project. Really sounds wise!

Hmmmm THANKYOU for the file suggestion for the photos on the blog. I can't blog without photos and I do resize them......but you are the first to mention this!Delete
I had never heard of shorties they sound like a great solution to using lots of dpns. I might see if there are any available over here in the UK. Glad to hear that you had another family weekend, they are the best aren't they?ReplyDelete
Love the sunrise/sunset? Gorgeous. I too joined friends Sunday for an afternoon of good food, stitching and camaraderie - always a treat. Good success to your son in his job search.ReplyDelete
oh yeah, what Bonny said ... I hope at least a few of his opportunities will keep him close (or close-ish - same timezone?!) and I LOVE the progress on both your swearers!!ReplyDelete
I am hoping your son finds a job within driving distance of home. Your sweaters look lovely. I wonder if twist-shorties are the same as flexi-flips. I might have to give them a try the next time I knit sleeves.ReplyDelete
Knitting and chatting with friends sounds like fun. Hope you son finds employment that isn't too far from you. Have a good week!ReplyDelete
Church friends for lunch and a good film was my weekend. Really hoping that your son finds employment near to you.ReplyDelete
Love how your knitting coordinates with the brownies. :) Happy knitting!ReplyDelete
I like this warm, chocolatey brown you're working with and yay for Chiagoo needles! I love my interchangeable twist set. Fingers crossed for your son and job interviews! And yummy! Brownies! Our court has a craft Sunday but we're going up to the city to watch Super Bowl at my daddy's.ReplyDelete
