Good morning! How was your weekend?

I have been bit by the knitting bug and have been working feverishly on the little baby blanket all weekend. On Sunday, my sister, aunt, cousin and goddaughter came over for a dinner on the back patio (my sister did all the cooking!) and we did a little bit of stitching. Of course I forgot to take a photo...

Yesterday I tidied up the house and did the laundry. I'm ready for another week! In some fantastic news this warm weather is supposed to end by Friday. Fingers are crossed that this becomes reality. 

Someone asked me in the comments on my last post about what podcasts I listen to, here are a few that are audio: 2knit lit chicks, knitmore girls, what should I read next, literary disco (salty language!), yarniacs, cogknitive and caithness craft collective. 

Do you all have any podcasts to recommend?

How was your weekend?


  1. Thank you for the podcast recommendations! It sounds like you are settling in at your house! Yay!

  2. I listened to one of the podcasts you recommended (What Should I Read Next) and really enjoyed it. I listen to a lot of podcasts too. Glad you had a good weekend. So glad you weather is cooling down. We had SNOW here over the weekend. Too early! See you again soon!

  3. It's wonderful that you are close enough to gather with close and extended family for dinner on the patio, especially when your sister does the cooking! I will be very glad when this warm weather ends. Mid-October is time for some real fall weather that sticks around!

  4. Podcasts I like: Country Stitchers, Misty Pursel, and Off The Grid Needlearts.

    Thanks for the recommendations.

  5. Thanks for the podcast ideas. I haven't caught on to this idea yet. I usually listen to music. You knitting looks great! How nice to be able to enjoy dinner with family.

  6. When is the baby due? Will there be other hand knits for this child?Thank you for the podcast info. I will be trying some of them.

  7. podcasts I 1isten to: radio1ab most1y. (npr)
    one on thalidomide was fascinating.
    one on K1eptotherms very coo1.

  8. Sounds like a lovely weekend! Thank you so much for sharing the podcasts you listen too. I enjoy CraftLit with Heather Ordover. You’re going to be finished with your blanket in no time!

  9. It's great you were able to have such a productive weekend and that the blanket is coming along so well!

    Hope you are having a good week :) It's a rainy one here!

  10. I mostly listen to NPR. Nice work on the baby blanket! It will be treasured.

  11. Hi Karen,
    ...it's so pretty there...the leaves are just barely turning here in the NC foothills...where I grew up in the mountains...the "peak week" for colour has probably already passed...but it will probably be about the 1st or 2nd week of November here...still looking forward to that....and the cooler temps it will bring...
    ~Have a lovely day!

  12. I enjoy the podcasts: Two Ewes Fiber Adventures and Yarns at Yin-hoo. Looks like the trees are turning near you. Today (Wednesday) we had a cool day - high of 63 with wind gusts but still it finally feels like Fall. Saturday we went to a grave-side service for the step-son of a dear friend of ours. The gentleman was only 39 years old so it was sad. Sunday was a better day with online church and coffee.
