Where on earth do the days, weeks and months go? Once again, time has slipped away from me.
What have you been doing, you might ask. Nothing spectacular. Just those ordinary, every day kind of things.
Knitting, reading, lunching with girlfriends, more knitting, more reading, more lunching with girlfriends. Nothing that exciting. Just time consuming. And fun.
I began working on a cardigan for myself with the yarn I purchased at Colorful Stitches when I was in Lenox, Mass. last month. And I’m also working on a baby blanket and sweater for my cleaning girl’s first grandchild who is due next month. Photos will follow on a future post.
I’ve also taught myself the Portuguese style of knitting. My BFF, Alice, called me recently and told me she discovered it and loved it. So I went to You Tube, watched some videos and thought, “yes, I want to try to this.” And……I’m hooked! I just love this style of knitting. It’s so much faster and my stitches seem to be more uniform. It’s also supposed to be much easier on your hands and wrists. I don’t have arthritis in my hands, but why tempt fate? So if you’re a knitter, you might want to check it out.
And since I last posted, summer has arrived pretty much everywhere across the country. Some areas are having excessive heat. Florida is always hot and humid during the summer. So the rain of the past few days has been a nice respite, bringing less humidity and lower temps.
If I’m home in the afternoon, I’ve been watching lots of Netflix and some PBS recorded shows. I’ll save this discussion for a future post also.
So that’s why I’ve been missing in action here………just enjoying the moments.
And I promise to see you much sooner next time. I do hope all is well with you……
