Some weeks go by so fast you blink and they are gone, this week has been slow. With Monday as a Holiday it kind of changed my momentum. I have been slower, more quiet this week for some reason. Because of that slowness, I swear not a lot has gotten done around here. There has been gardening, want to peek.....
We have had a lot of rain lately so my flowers are flowering and the bees are buzzing.....
There has been knitting. I am attempting to knit Bella from the book Essentially Feminine Knits by Lene Holme Samsoe. I saw this pattern on Ravelry and almost fell out of my chair. Then I realized I had the book, perfect. It will be a challenge for me, but if I take it slow and cross my fingers, maybe the knitting faeries will look down on me and help me along.
I have to follow an intricate lace chart for this pattern, which is something I have never done before. It is being made with sport weight yarn on size 3 needles, yikes they are small. I have to concentrate on every stitch and want to yell in total joy when I reach the end of the row with the correct stitch count.
There has been some crochet, yes another Elise Shawl, I think this is my new go to pattern. It is easy and I don't have to think about it too much when I am crocheting. It is good for a TV show, or when I know I will be disturbed a lot. I have three friends with birthdays this month, they might all be getting one from me, probably late but it is the thought that counts.
This is where I sit and knit or crochet. I'd love you to come and join me. We can make some tea, put our feet up and chat about life.
The view out my dining room window, the light coming in my dirty windows caught my eye, it is so pretty and calm.
I brought out my grapevine pumpkin. It is the only Autumn-ish thing I have out. I love that it is sooooo big.
And there have been walks with my best buddy Max. He is always there ready to go and have a little fun.
A quiet week but a good week. How was your week?
