Knitting is very conducive to thought. It is nice to knit a while, put down the needles, write a while, then take up the sock again.

Busy days and lazy nights

This past week, I started the Daybreak Shawl by Steven West.  I had a few rough starts with the M1L and M1R on the edging, so I decided to use yarn overs instead.  I choose the Misty Alpaca Sock and Malabrigo Sock...so scrumptious!

During the days, I have been working in the yard, one flower pot at a time.  Although a little toad has decided to sabotage me by digging my flowers back up!  While J has been fixing the ceiling in the bathroom. We also hung Old Glory!

At night, while J goes out riding, I have been meeting friends at the new coffee shop to knit and chat.  It doesn't get much better then that!

Have a safe Memorial Day!

Post Rapture

I'm back and I plan on staying! Life has settled down at our new home and moving forward.  I've knitted so many things since my last post, but I will leave you with my latest.

Here is the Roxanne shawl, it was a mystery KAL by feministy, and it was my first.  I have to admit, while knitting it, I could not see myself wearing it.  But now that it is done, I love it!
