That’s my new mantra. Zen enough fer ya? It’s what I’ve started saying to myself when I get all whiny and bitchy. So far, it has a 92% success record! I don’t use it out loud or in mixed company or anything like that. It’s a “just for me” mantra. So, blogging twice in two days. Can you stand it? Don’t worry. We all know that I’m completely incapable of maintaining this consistency. I just wanted to chat a bit more today. Grab a cup from the cupboard and pour a cup of tea and join me at the computer monitor.
I spent yesterday raking leaves and cleaning the yard (and, pond) just a bit. I always have more leaves than bags or cans, so I’m a tad unkempt yardwise even after working for two hours, but if I get another chance before snow flies I’ll work at it again. If not, so be it.
I found this cool pattern on Ravelry. It’s the Lazy Girl Shawl by Megan Peters. You have to be a member of Ravelry to see it, but it’s really neat. Anyway, these are the yarns I’m thinking of making them with. The blue/yellow combo is already in my possession and the yellow was sent to me long after I purchased the blue/yellow.
I’m not sure about the combination. The top is a purer yellow and the bottom is sunshine yellow. Of course, I could be completely overthinking this (we all know it’s a tendency), but I can’t tell. But, won’t that look cool? And, I’ve been knitting, but cannot show you the result. As is typical for me, I completely changed my mind on the gift knitting and have been knitting like a fiend on the
latest last project for the gift. In fact, when I hit publish on this post I’m going to sit in my warm cozy chair and pick up the gift and go at it again. I’m enjoying the pattern which makes it more fun on all counts.
I will leave you with my soundtrack for the day. Joni Mitchell and “Woodstock”. I never tire of her.
Have a great week!
