{yarn along}

22 Feb

Yesterday afternoon, all the stars aligned.   All the girls took a nap.  Praises resounded.   We have had a rough go of nap time recently.  In that still quiet, I had forty pages left in The Winter Sea, and I intended to savor every single one of them.  I really enjoyed this book. I liked the two stories told.  I liked the characters (past and present) and oh my, was I stunned at one point. There was actually one point where I saw how much of the book was left and was wondering how the author was going to wrap the story up.  Good thing, too, she got me.  Smelling the sea air is the only thing that could have made the book better.

I have been making progress on the cowl I began last week.  The pattern is knitting up nicely, and I am excited for it to find its way to its new home, soon.  I am thinking I will tackle my list of project almost near completion very soon …

++ I say all this knowing full well I am headed out of town soon and Joel’s mom is going to help me start a smocking project for the girls and our trip to the beach this year.  Dresses for the beach are, in fact, on the list, perhaps I’ll just call this a jump start.++

As I walked down stairs this morning the sky was so bright red, I just had to stop and soak it in.  Enjoy the day, friends!

    lovely cowl progress! The book looks very interesting. I hope nap time stays for awhile for you so you can read and knit more.

    A fire, a good book, a little knitting, a cup of ? (coffee?) – good day, indeed.
