Yarn Along

{ Yarn Along } 

It has been a while since I have joined up with Ginny's Yarn Along but February has been a busy and hectic month of ups and downs. Thankfully, I have the ability to weather the stormy seas with some quiet time knitting. A type of therapy. Now that things are beginning to calm down I am able to share what I have been working on the past couple weeks. 

I am working on the last couple rows of the Oaklet Shawl before the edging section. The yarn color is turning out quite well with the pattern. I also started a knit shawl ( A Sensible Shawl ) from my new knitting book, The Best of Jane Austen Knits. It is a wrap shawl with ties in the back which would be perfect for long walks on those cool spring evenings. 

I just started reading The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins. I literally started the book last night and read two pages before falling asleep. So- no opinions just yet. 

Ready for March!

Mindful Mondays

 Mindful Mondays 

 A series on Mondays (as often as possible) that calls all things I am doing, thinking, and creating.

:: reading- The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins. I am starting it tonight. 

:: listening to - a meditation CD in hopes of developing a time in my day to just sit and be. 

:: studying- star maps since we have a new telescope that I hope to use as soon as it warms up a bit. 

:: creating- birthday gifts and decorations for our boy's 1st birthday party this weekend. 

:: cooking- panko crusted shrimp, wild rice, and veggies for dinner tonight. I might Also also throw in a tray of brownies for a chocolate fix.  

:: educating - myself on how to use our DSLR camera better. I want to explore all the possibilities of taking a great picture.  (Still...)

:: feeling- refreshed because everything is better in the morning light.

:: thinking - about spring. We have nearly a foot of snow outside and I am ready for warmer temperatures. I am also thinkinh thinking about our upcoming move this summer. Big changes on the way.
