Where to begin? It's amazing how time just slips by isn't it? I will admit that I tend to post a little more regularly on Instagram or Facebook because it's quick and easy, but I love my little corner here in blog land where I have met so many of the people who I now call friend most. I will always keep this little corner even when I am quiet. :)
Since we last visited, Ken and I have embarked on a new Whole30 for the month of April and so far we are doing great, even though it is the month of jelly beans!. We allowed ourselves to enjoy Easter Day in moderation and then got right back to it. It's not easy and finding foods that keep it interesting can be challenging, but it's also a feeling of accomplishment when you are finished as well....and your body thanks you by giving you a reprieve from inflammation pain. We will definitely be finding ways to incorporate this more in our daily lives once we are finished.
On the knitting front, I have been testing a few new yarns that I will be bringing into my shop. These are 4 natural, non superwash merino blends that I am really excited about. Above is one of the blends...it is a DK weight merino/silk yarn that is incredibly soft. I enjoyed knitting Stravaigin so much so that I decided to knit another one with this blend and I was so pleased with it. The colors in this cowl are Blush, Natural and Daddy Steelbucks.
I am currently knitting up some plain swatches of the other 3 yarns and I have a few skeins of the sport weight merino dyed and ready to go on the needles next week to test a new project with. I am so happy to have found my knitting mojo again and knitting these smaller projects have really made me smile.
I will also be adding a "wee little sweater" to the knit list next week and I really look forward to knitting this!!
Oh...and one more little tidbit of news. I will be starting a new job next month that I am really looking forward to! It will be doing many of the same things I am doing in my current job, but in a smaller setting with a great group of people, along with keeping The Woolen Rabbit going strong.
It really has been a busy month here with new adventures on the horizon and new adventures are always fun, aren't they?
