Good morning lovelies! Today is a beautiful sunny, shining day full of potential. I was spoiled with breakfast in bed this morning! Eep! What more fabulous things does this day have hidden away? Well, it seems like it foreshadows… Knitting!
EEE! I love knitting! Beautiful wool is such a pleasure to work with. Yesterday I finished myself a lovely hat with a giant pom-pom on it. It was almost as cute as… these little pawsies.
Anywho, of course there’s going to be some good writing happening today! I’ve been writing on a particularly difficult piece lately, and if all goes stable and well I may actually finish it soon! And then I’ll have the joys of editing, re-writing, re-re-writing… hahaha.
Weehee! It’s Saturday! Pit is gaming, I am resting, and would you know it? I’m recuperating slowly from my little downer, so I’m now thinking of doing what all knitters indulge in… spending atrocious amounts of money on wool!
Luckily for me I traded some vintage objects in at a store and now have in store credit. And whooo! Wool! But this brings me to a dilemma…
As a man coming to terms with the fact that I knit, I have run up against a problem. I want to knit for myself, yet all the patterns on Ravelry are for women. Hark! As much as I appreciate lacy shawls featuring delicate rosebud patterns… I don’t think they suit me. So what is a man with an addiction to wool do? Well, swamp your beloveds with knitted things, obviously, haha. Pit is maybe going to start drowning in knits if I start knitting uniquely for her.
But what else will I do? Well, if I manage to sneak out of the house today (I’ll need a ride into town) I might spoil her with a rose. Just because… and then I’ll look something like this giving it to her…
I hope you all have a lovely weekend! Hopefully I will be able to keep up and will have more drawings for you tomorrow, but no promises. Take care!
Well lovelies, today is another start in the next week of Nanowrimo! Over the weekend I hit an enormous roadblock with my writing and wrote one chapter over four times – only to throw that chapter out and redo it completely differently!
It was quite the exercise in patience.
Speaking of patience – I’ve started a new knitting project! Here it is, full of kitty- kat approval.
Without the cat, this is what it looks like. It’s going to be a red and green cowl – perfect for the season!
How is all of your nanowrimo projects going? Have you started any other projects on the side? Let me know!
Ah, today is such a lovely day. Up here, in the strange northern climate where these TwoLovebirds live, it has been so hot in the past few days. But today I woke up and it was nice and cool. A lovely respite from the twenty-something sweltering heat. Now what better thing is there to do in cool weather than knit?
I was totally thrilled with today’s prompt ‘Yarn’. Yarn is amazing! One can truly unleash the imagination through it. It is cozy and lovely, comforting and enjoyable. It makes beautiful gifts, charity material, all ways to spread positivity in the world around us, all while instilling a sense of peace and joy in the maker.
The Quilt I’m working on in this image is an old, persistent project. It’s made of unwanted strands from local thrift stores. It’s made from odds and ends left over from beloved projects. I’ve been working on it for so long that it’s become an enjoyable companion, a living piece of my personal history nestled next to me as I knit the final border around it. When it is finished, it will not only be a blanket. It will be the quilt that me and my wife have already slept underneath on cool knights when the other blankets were not enough. The blanket we snuggled beneath on the couch while i was knitting it. The blanket that she encouraged me to finish despite the immensity of it.
That is what knits carry. Love, patience, hard work, and a story.
