Peep

Well, it started out like this only a short time ago, and knitting this has become an obsession. And then it looked like this - a most glorious garter-stitch yoke.
Now it is this - a sleeveless, very short cardi. Don't worry, we have a fair bit more to go before it looks a bit more like the February Lady Sweater. I just started on my third skein of Malabrigo, and I am definitely not bored by the gull lace pattern. In fact, I am pleasantly surprised with how much I am enjoying knitting the lace. It's only 7 stitches over 4 rows, and 2 of those rows are straight purling. It's mindless knitting at its best. If the doorbell rings, I won't be keeping my guests waiting until the end of the row or yelling for someone to get the door. We're good.And it's been on my mind all day as I write out the date on slips, minutes, deposits, and cheques. Happy 4th of July to all the Americans out there! Heck, happy 4th of July to the whole wide world! It's like Pooh and Piglet wishing everyone a happy 'winds'day. Here's what we were up to just last Tuesday for Canada Day - flippin' sparklers! I thought the kids were going to set their faces on fire. I was a wreck. At one point, J suggested I move inside as I was making them nervous. Miraculously no one was hurt.

Enjoy your weekend wherever you may be - be it visiting Oprah or just chilling at the local Michaels. Cheers, my friends! Stay safe.

Great colour - I don't like sparklers either & am glad the kids are past being interested in them.
