Weekends

 

How was your weekend?

It's beginning to look a lot like springtime around here. The grass is greening up and then poof the daffodils are blooming! One day I look out the window and there's nothing and then the next day there's brilliant yellow blossoms. Fantastic to behold and somewhat magical.

My weekend was mostly the same as all the others. Saturday was kind of lazy with lots of afternoon reading - I love carving out a marathon reading session - it makes Saturday feel like Saturday. We took a walk with Frodo but couldn't do the dirt road because I could hear there was target shooting going on (not a fan of being accidentally shot). So we walked the road and not one car passed us. So the paved road felt like the dirt road walk.

Do you see that yarn above? Wonder why there are two balls? Well....this was from deep stash and I thought I'd start some shawl knitting once my sweater is finished. I'm guessing the many many breaks in the wool was a gift from the Past Holly who nibbled on wool when I didn't know it. All of my yarns are now safely put away in closets but back then I had them lovingly displayed in decorative baskets. 

I was mighty stressed out that what should have took fifteen minutes to wind ended up being over an hour. Oh Holly, it's a good thing I love you.

The sweater!

I am on the second sleeve and I'm mentally cycling through two thoughts. 1.) hurry up and get it done and 2.) savor the last bit of knitting.

Yesterday we watched Avengers Infinity War - so so good and my was my knitting on fire!

  4. Kittens are not the only yarn stealers. My male dog loved to take my sock yarn and run through the house and put the doggy door into the backyard with it......unraveling the skein the entire way. I still love him too.

    Looks like spring has come to your area of the world. Those daffodils are so pretty and cheery.

    Your sweater will be completed in no time. I like the yarn you will be using for the shawl. Holly approves of itt too.

  8. This weekend officially marked the end of winter for us. Our temps this week are predicted to push 90! We celebrated our youngest daughter's birthday with dinner downtown for her, her fiance, and fiance's brother. Sister is taking her to lunch today as she was unable to join us on Saturday. I continued to purge photos from my iPhoto program, AND after a 26 month hiatus, I resurrected my blog with two separate posts...one was the birthday dinner. I forgot how much I enjoy writing this tome.

  9. All that beautiful spring. The only thing that's up here is the pachysandra. Even my hostas aren't visible.
    I spent my weekend moving. The movers come for the furniture tomorrow, so I'm looking forward to a real weekend at the end of this week!

  10. Oh that sweater is so so pretty. I am glad you stayed away from the target shooting. Yikes. We spent Saturday recovering from our second Covid vaccine but honestly, I couldn't have been happier. Sunday the weather was sunny and we felt fine so we walked. Our son blew through, flying in to pick up a used car he bought for his son. He bought it from a friend. We talked to him outdoors with masks on. A very short but sweet visit. Then I knit him safely home all the way to Texas.

  14. That's a pretty, tonal red yarn. Oh Minnie and Momo jacked up a sock yarn set I had gotten once up north and Minnie messed up a skein I had won from Dole Valley Girl. The messed up yarn is stuffed away somewhere,
