Joining Ginny from Small Things for a weekly Yarn Along catch up.
As I write this post the rain is pouring down outside, soaking the garden and hopefully doing good things for that grass seed that we sowed over the weekend. I have some potatoes baking in the oven for our lunch and some Praise and Worship playing softly in the background. There is a distinctly peaceful atmosphere in my home right now. These little moments I treasure for life is often very busy and I have learnt to Savour these brief moments of peace and quiet.
On the needles: My Hermione's Everyday Socks are coming along nicely. I really had hoped to be done with at least the first sock by today, but life has been busy once again and I have not picked up the needles as much as I would have liked to since my last Yarn Along post.
I am loving this pattern! There is a comfortable rhythm to it's pattern, easy to remember and fabulous to see grow and take shape. As I knit these socks my mind is beginning to plan out what items I want to have ready for the Autumn later on in the year. Don't get me wrong - I'm not wishing the year by and certainly I am looking forward to summer and the warm days. But each year the cold weather seems to suddenly arrive and I find that there is ALWAYS a shortage of gloves, mittens, scarves etc for the family. So this year I figured that if I just keep building up the winter-warmers stockpile I won't be caught out :)
Reading: Well, I finished off my Agatha Christie's Murder On The Links - I was completely side-swiped with who did it! Didn't see that one coming :) I'm between books at the moment so I am eager to visit some other Yarn Along posts and see what books are being shared.
Blessings to all of you today ....
