Today is mid-week. Lovely. Mom said last night that she wanted to start going outside and sitting in the evening. I explained to her that it was just a tad early. We have 40F and it’s breezy. Just a tiny bit too chilly to sit. But, I can’t help but agree with the sentiment. I’m ready for Spring.
Thank you, Heide. This is my birthday present from you! The book Wrap Style and four skeins of fingering Knitpicks Gloss for a shawl. It’s perfect. Thank you again!!! I’m having a bit of trouble not casting on right now!!!
I am currently knitting a present for Frannie. A dear friend. Her birthday is next week (if my faulty memory serves me). It is a cowl in Malabrigo worsted. I love this yarn. It’s heaven. The colors are her, too. I will share a picture when it is completed. It’s knitting up pretty darned fast.
Otherwise, I have been holding my own. Not accomplishing a heck of a lot, but not losing much ground either. I am slowly learning not to compare myself to other knitters who are much faster and more prolific that I. I can enjoy their beautiful knits and produce a nice one myself as I can. It’s the process, right? I am also working on getting to the gorgeous roving that Margene sent me for my birthday. It is in a proud and proper place on the dining room table awaiting the wheel.
So, I will leave you with my soundtrack for today. I’m feeling a bit silly and when I feel this way, I do loves me the Smothers Brothers. Here they are in an old clip of “Boil That Cabbage Down”. Brilliant comedians and terrific musicians. Enjoy.
Have a good one!!!!!!!!
