This Moment

:: This Moment :: 

A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words- capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor, and remember.

Yarn Along

:: Yarn Along :: 


So much to NOT say about this week in my knitting. I am still working on my KAL "Follow Your Arrow" but I am now a week behind because I think my brain stopped working this week and I misread the directions and had to undo some rows of knitting. Rather exhausting and frustrating but it had to be done. Sigh. But I figured it out and I am now back on track. It is really fun knitting something that has an unknown outcome, every section is a surprise. I started a new baby sweater the other night after finishing another baby cap. This sweater pattern is out of a book entitled Easy Baby Knits

I am currently reading Death Comes at Pemberley by P.D. James. As a general rule of thumb I do not read anything that deviates from Jane Austen's original work but I like it so far. 

Hope you are having a wonderful knitting week!
