This morning a took a walk on the beach all alone. It was blissful. The beach is only 25 minutes from my house yet I have not been there for a year and a half. I am always saying I am so busy and frankly I am. With working four 12-13 hour days in a row, taking Friday's for appointments and all those errands you have to do, private patients on Saturday and Sunday mornings, well there isn't much time for the beach. Little Buddy also takes up loads of time as he should. But today my private patient canceled and I decided to jump in my car and take a walk while I had the chance. Oh my it was sooooooooooo beautiful. The water is warm, the sun not to hot. There were pelicans and all sorts of sea birds, and already at 10:00 way to many people. Yet I tried to think of the positive, I heard foreign voices so I was happy people from around the world were visiting this beautiful area. I saw parents lifting their kids out of the water and helping them look for shells. I saw people of all shapes and sizes taking photos of this trip to remember. It was really lovely just to listen to the gentle waves and smell the salty air. Now to get back there again before too long!
Yesterday as I was working on a young woman in my office I felt so crowed and knew I needed to get some things cleared out. I have a big therapy table right in the middle of everything, but it needs to be there so I decided to remove a small book shelf, consolidate some items, get rid of books and then I looked at my yarn. I know moving yarn along somewhere new does not sound like much but to me it was. I donated a few bits and bobs of yarn but thought that one of you might like the following yarns. They are way too nice to give to the donation store yet I know after all this time I won't use them. So here we go.
#1: Filigran lace yarn, 100% Merino, 1200 meters total and the book Golden Morning a spring collection of knits from 2015.
#2: Ella Rae lace Merino, 460 yards, 100% extra fine merino yarn and the book Knitting for Peace. I bought this yarn in North Carolina because it reminded me of the mountains.
That is it. You can just tell me which one you are interested in or both if you choose. No having to like my blog, or mention to a friend or post about this anywhere. Just make sure I can get a hold of you if you win and that you check back next Sunday when I will post about the winners. If you are not interested no worries, I completely understand not wanting to add to your stash.
Both yarns are lovely but apparently I will never learn not to buy lace weight yarn because it is not my favorite weight to knit with.
And now I am seriously going to get back to using the yarn in my stash. I need to lighten my load!
Hope you all have a great week.
