This weekend was lovely. On Friday the temps were in the upper 60’s. On Saturday they were around 65 or 66. Lovely. I think I can make it through the rest of the winter now. At least, for now.
This is a rose from 2 years ago. I just had to put in something blooming and pretty since the landscape here in Middle Earth is brown and drab. A bloom to look forward to.
Now, for the knitting. I looked on Ravelry (what a fabulous idea this was and is) and found knitted edges in the lace knitting group. I found one i like and thought would look good with the PurplePi. I am ruffling the edge and now have approximately 4 million stitches on the needles. I spent yesterday knitting the adds for the ruffle and the next set up row. I’ll add more the next time around and then do another set up row and then start the lace part. Does this make any sense? Probably not. I know what I’m doing (I think), but I can’t explain myself well. The ultimate reason the counselor advised me not to go into teaching.
And, sweet dear Heide sent me a birthday present. She sent me a gift certificate for Knit Picks. Thank you so much, kiddo! I have spent it four different ways already. I’m having a blast. When I finally decide for sure, I’ll let you all know what I got!! Thank you all for your birthday wishes. A special thanks to Margene for bringing it up;–) And, another special thanks to Heide for writing her entire post about my birthday and me.
The weekend was lovely. It is amazing what a bit of spring does for your soul when you have had your fill of winter. And, I do apologize to those of you who have been hammered far worse than we have. I have always admitted to being a weather weiny.
And, the soundtrack today? How’s about some more Byrds? This is one I love and I don’t think it was very widely played. “Have You Seen Her Face?”
Have a good one!
