I sometimes think life is pretty complicated. I have so much going on in my life, and many worries swirling around me, so I think I need to stick with simple.
A simple flower arrangement on my table. Simple allows you to really see the beauty of the flowers you have, if you have too many flowers you can't see each one individually. They look beautiful as a whole, but you miss the intricate beauty of just one.
The Bella sweater is being put on hold. I tried to knit it four times and got very mixed up. There are 64 rows of the lace pattern, I thought I could surely do that. I dropped stitches, I miss counted and felt way too much stress. It is beautiful that is for sure, and it is something I will do in the future, but right now I need simple.
I like a challenge, but maybe there is a certain time in your life for a challenge and a time to just sit back and enjoy working with yarn. I am hoping to make Tara instead. This is something with a little bit of thought, a little bit of zip, but not a whole lot of complicated stitches. I can see myself wearing this in the winter. Simple is better for me right now.
I am also working on my third Elise Shawl, another gift for another friend. I have at least one more planned after this one is complete, well maybe two, we will see if I get bored with the pattern. So far I am still loving working with this pattern, it is simple, a two row repeat. Simple, I like that.

And the simply sweetest face ever. Here is my buddy waiting for his Dad to get home from work. He lays in the laundry room or my husbands closet all day long, waiting and waiting.
A simple, uncomplicated, unconditional love. Who could ask for more?
Are you working on something simple?
