I posted this verse once before, but in reading it again this morning, as it is today's quote, it meant something completely different to me this time. I have been bemoaning the fact that I haven't had time for blogging. I haven't been reading many blogs, commenting on blogs or even emailing in general.....and am really missing it, but my journey right now is a little different than it was even a few months ago. How does that happen? How does life go from a nice even pace and then all of a sudden you find yourself in a whirlwind of busyness and not necessarily busy doing what you love?
To keep things in balance though, I have been squeaking in some knitting time. This shapely shawl should be finished this weekend. I think that I am going to add a beaded picot edging on it, to give it a little weight and dress it up a bit.
Judy's yarns are so pretty! The colors are vibrant and is a pleasure to knit with. You can see a little of the shine in this merino/silk blend, although the pictures don't quite give it enough justice.
Judy's Spring Green colorway was going to be my next project, but Judy graciously sent me some of her new silk yarn to sample for her. This is a new yarn for her, so it will be fun. I think I am going to do a scarf in Barbara Walker's Frost Flower pattern. I haven't written out how I am going to incorporate it into this scarf yet, but I have some ideas floating around in my head (that can be a scary thing.....LOL)
Last week was the puppies first adventure in the big outdoor world. I don't yet have a doggie door, so to make carrying the babies outside a bit easier, I utilized my big canvas LL Bean bag. As you can see from their little faces they were a tad confused about what the heck was going on
Most of this week's knitting was accomplished as I sat out in the yard for an hour or so each day, enjoying the sunshine, the fresh air and puppy antics. You can see from these pictures, just how much they are enjoying Spring!
