This weekend had brilliant sunshine! I've mentally bottled it up and will remember it fondly when we return to cloudiness and rain once more. How was your weekend?
We managed a walk outside in the sun looking for snowdrops blooming and didn't find them yet. The birds were singing away and the fresh air while cold smelled like spring. I know, it's too early but it's nice to daydream of light jacket wearing days.
I made four washcloths over the weekend and hope to make a few during this week. I'm just about to start another sweater for me however I am waiting for some contrasting color skeins to arrive in the mail before I cast on. I'm down to two projects on the needles and both of them are shawls.
How was your weekend?
What a lovely weekend you had! Washcloths are nice "palate cleansing" knitting between sweaters.ReplyDelete
Washcloths always brighten my knitting doldrums. They work up so quickly. Makes me feel so accomplished in a short amount of time. What sweater pattern is on your agenda next?ReplyDelete
I like your washcloth idea... I need to pick up some cotton yarn to make some! (and the sunshine!!)ReplyDelete
Pretty washcloths! Love that peachy color. Weren't the sun and the blue, blue skies so wonderful this weekend. It just felt so good to get out and walk.ReplyDelete
oh, I wish I'd thought to bottle up some sunshine ... it's gray and wet here today and I could use some!! Have a great week!ReplyDelete
Oh, those lovely blue skies! (somehow winter skies are different from the sky around here, I guess it's the amount of light). I had a great weekend too. Sewing and gardening. Bliss!ReplyDelete
Such a pretty stack --- peach and white look so nice together.ReplyDelete
Our sunshine will end, also. But we did have a lovely run of it. So I guess the coming "dullness and precipitation," should not be too hard to take. -smile-ReplyDelete
I really want to start making some washcloths and dishtowels for my daughters. As slow as I am, they would be ready in plenty of time for Christmas, LOL! Seriously, they seem like the perfect mindless project to work on when my main knitting starts to get tiresome. Our weekend was great, I do love how sunny and warm it has been. Great for hiking!ReplyDelete
thanks for your comment on my blog! :) agreed, walking really does help one's mood!!! sorry to hear about your Mom's cousins! I hope you have a peaceful encouraging week!ReplyDelete
We were able to go out for a walk this weekend also. We are expecting rain the next to days, but at least we have had some sun. Your wash cloths look nice and new and soft. I am looking forward to seeing the next sweater that you start knitting.ReplyDelete
We had another sunny day today, Monday. I'll take each and every one. Wash cloths are a nice project. I need to knit a few to stash in my gift bag and maybe a couple to use here. I look forward to seeing your new knitting projects. I am down to one project. My shawl is dry from blocking and needs ends woven in. The hitchhiker is drying and then another weaving-ends-in session. I don't mind the weaving in though - it means something is finished- finished.ReplyDelete
More rain at the weekend but warm and cosy in our little cottage. Finally we have sunshine today hurray. Love the washcloths.ReplyDelete
Catching up on some blog reading after a busy week. My weekend was very full hence I am behind on my blog reading. I need to knit some washcloths I have worn a few out, I need to dive into my stash to see what cotton I have in there to make some. Hope you have had a good week.ReplyDelete
I am really admiring the color, coral. Do you follow Edible Thoughts Makes? Stephanie recently completed a Pure Joy Shawl and the colors she used are all kinds of wonderful. Seeing Frodo zzz made me ^__^.ReplyDelete
