I have got a number of them: shoes, jackets, yarn, hostas, geranium, my garden in general AND technical stuff … did I mention shoes? 🙂 🙂
The beginning of this week it was yarn again. Actually, it’s been yarn for year. I got a big enough stash to knit socks for every member in my family including my extended family.
So, here I was after my doctor’s appointment needing to fill a prescription. Next door to the pharmacy is a store that sells the most beautiful yarn and there was a SALE! 😉 Somehow I ended up with a bunch of Tiffany Yarn. With no idea beforehand what to do with it, I purchased it. Oh well. There is always a reason to justify SALE purchases.
At home I was going through Ravelry projects, when I decided to try a triangular shawl for the first time. I am not a pro at this knitting thing, really impatient when it comes to complicated projects. Knitting this was actually a lot of fun and I finished in 4 days. I might as well brag a little. What else do I have a blog for? 🙂 Mr. B approved.
Waking up this morning to find everything covered in snow was quite nice, even though I am ready for warmer weather. However, it’s winter, I guess we’ll have to live with it a little longer. As gardeners we keep the color “green” in mind. However, a good freeze doesn’t hurt, correct? Personally, I am hoping the freezing cold will kill the slugs that mutilated a lot of hostas last year.
While I am reminiscing about warmer days, I am working on warming someone’s feet. 🙂
The “zoo” is taking it easy as usual.
Have a great week everyone!
Not being able to be outdoors brings out the Suzie Homemaker in me every winter. HOWEVER, my “old” knitting addiction showed up again about 1.5 years ago. I admit I’m powerless and I gladly submit to this addiction. 🙂 My stash of yarn has increased dramatically and will – along with my sewing projects- keep me busy.
Here’s what I have worked on during the last weeks.
Currently this cowl is on my needles. Made of Merino and Mohair yarn. I must say I really love knitting it. Got a little ways to go, but it is fun to knit and so lightweight, soft and I am sure it will keep my neck warm this winter.
I have been knitting lots of socks during the last year and also bought a number of books about socks. Knitting them while watching TV relaxes me and keeps my mind off “things”. This past year a lot of Hundertwasser yarn by Opal has been used, but also others. They were welcome Christmas gifts for some lucky people this past Christmas.
I did mention I enjoy sewing, too? Well, here’s a simple beanie I made for a little girl I know. It is reversible jersey and fleece.
Here’s the other side of it.
Here’s a knitted one that made another little girl and her grandmother happy.
Until next time. 🙂
