One of the best things about summertime is sitting on my back porch, and knitting away on one of the many UFOs while my son and his friends THWACK each other in the pool with those foam noodles! Sword fight! Marco. Polo.
Right now the garden is coming alive with green tomatos and I saw a few tiny peppers and eggplant the other day newly sprouted! We've already enjoyed a few dishes with our Swiss chard and Collard/Mustard Greens. managed to grab a few raspberries from the bushes before the birds knew they were ripe! So many things about the summer that are worth looking forward to! Feel free to send me your recipes for Swiss Chard and Collards! That's definitely something to look forward to!
Knitting every day is something I look forward to and has kept me very busy over the years.
Reflecting about my knitting projects and the people to which I am knitting committed.....Finished the Turtle Check Square for the Knitting Ministry's Afghan Raffle and enjoyed the rhythem of the cable pattern. Once started it was very easy to knit without constantly referring to the pattern. I thought to myself "so this is what comes to you after many years of knitting! A "oneness" with the Cable Stitch"!
The final square is called Hourglass Cable and Bobbles. Upon casting on and knitting the first row I learned that this is going to be a not so easy and mindless knit as every row seems to be very different! I am taking a little break from this for a few days...All those Bobbles again!
I am sooooo looking forward to havng this final square completed so we can see all 20 squares side by side and begin the joining process.
I'm looking forward to completing this latest Ballband, and perhaps sending it to my Exchange Pal, whoever she may be, for this quarter's Monthly Dishcloth Exchange. Is it worthy? Will the colors be right for her? I also signed up for Secret Pal 11 and am eagerly waiting to learn the identity of who I will spoil over the next 3 months!
Looking forward to starting this Ballband for the Dog Days Of Summer Discloth TODAY because I adore the combination of blues and browns and since the Pal I was assigned doesn't seem picky about colors, will knit one for us both. Hope she likes it! Getting that goody box ready to ship!
Looking forward to teaching a knitting class on Monday nights starting this fall at my local community college. I enjoyed developing the course outline and really want this to be a fun experience for the students. I also teach at Michael's, AND work perdium as an RN at a hospital, so I struggle at times to keep it all in balance!
This just arrived and I've been looking forward to knitting this hat pattern for some time now. I'm not really a hat person but I love the idea of knitting a One Hour Hat! Size 35 needles. Thanks Pretending Sanity for this great pattern! Thinking it will look nice with my black pea coat.
Looking forward to a terrific week and wishing the same for YOU!
