The Rain


There has been so much rain this week. There are times when I am out on my daily walk with Frodo and I wonder why I'm happy, then decide it's because the sun is out. This week, I'm wondering why I feel blue, well - it's because of the endless gloomy skies. Sure the sun comes out at the end of the day and I do appreciate it but I like some sunshine sprinkled in with the rain, please.

This week the trees have been sprouting and the green sheen can be seen wherever you go. I like this part of springtime - the newness and the green-ness, it pairs perfectly with Easter and rebirth.

How are you? How's your week been? 

I continue to work on his socks for no more than one hour at a time. This approach seems to be the sweet spot of knitting without any wrist pain. Earlier in the week, I pulled out my sketchbook and did some abstract sketching and painting. I really enjoyed myself. I mostly read when I'm not knitting.

I have a shawl blocking in the laundry room and I plan to cast on a lace weight scarf/shawl over the weekend. This new project will be a Christmas gift for someone in the family. 

Thank you all for visiting this space! I was thinking of the little community we all share and how some of us have known each other for a really long time. Thank you for commenting and thank you to the silent readers.


  1. Oh my, your hellebores are gorgeous! This rain though... sigh. We need a spate of "dry out" days! Have a great weekend!

  2. I can handle the rain (mostly), but I am sick of the wind :-o. What a spring...

  3. Our rain moved out Monday night. It's been cold here again but warming up a little each day. Yes, that green stuff is all over everything. LOL! I have had a cold but am feeling better today...
    Enjoying knitting my Journeymen Hat on Ravelry. Cannot wait to learn to knit socks. Just not brave enough to start that yet.

  4. Oh my goodness, your area has had so much rain. We are very dry. I've noticed the bright greens in the landscape. I love to watch Spring arrive. Sometimes when my hands or shoulder hurt they tolerate knitting on a soft shawl in a slightly looser gauge. I hope that is the case for you.

  5. We've had a lot of rain here in the UK. My gardening son has had a few days off work. Had a busy week but felt unwell with diet issues. I've been knitting a little everyday and started reading a new book.

  6. We have had a lot of rain this week also. Our backyard was like a lake. Very dreary. Supposed to be sunny this weekend...yea. And hoping for no clouds on Monday so we can enjoy the eclipse. Looks like you are making good progress on the socks, even at one hour a day!

  7. There has been a lot of rain, and cold weather too, in your area. Love the yarn you’re using for your sock.

  8. Lots of rain here this week and those little sun breaks make a big difference in my mood too. I wonder if the weather is part of my struggle to settle on a knitting project. Feel like I am bouncing around and around.

  9. I feel the same way you do, Karen, when it comes to the sunshine and rain. I know we need both, but I am much happier when the sun is shining.
