This is a brief post to share a couple more knitting photos … it is great to be able to knit more once again. Little Sweet Pea is being so good about not ripping out my needles any longer. She actually sat in my lap and watched me work on her little eyelash yarn skirt last night. I’m going to call this one “Sassafras Tea Skirt”, because I intend to have a tea party with her once it is finished. I’m using Size U.S. 9 circular needles for the skirt, so it is a very quick project.
Here is another photo of the Slouchies Socks, to show the contrasting colors in the heels and toes. She sure does love her little socks — and when pulled all the way up they come above her knees, but then slouch back down just enough to be cute but not bothersome.
It looks like we are going to have sunshine today; that will be great after a week of temperatures in the 60’s with gray skies and rain off and on. We would enjoy having a little bit more NY summer, pretty please. I’m looking outside at our barn as I write. There is array of tall wild flowers, cat tails, and milk weed arranged artistically by nature on the south side, where the wood block painted with a quilt square hangs on the barn, the sun is illuminating the scene. To the right of the barn, and back further I see the field of corn topped with golden tassels. Blue sky above, puffy clouds floating gracefully past and way back behind the corn field, our stand of woods.
Quite a healthy, beautiful scene. Wish my son were here to enjoy this with me, over a cup of coffee and some homemade biscuits. It is his birthday tomorrow, oh how I wish he were here.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, and a I’ll “see” you next week.
