Suburban life is wonderful. I love how the stores we frequent are nearby. I love how the people here are low-key. The neighborhood we moved into is quiet and full of terrific residents.
My daughters have made friends with the boy across the street. They’ve been playing with one another since last week. Each time while these three romp about, I am usually taking watch. What am I to do then for the one to two hours?
I haven’t touched knitting needles since the twelfth of April. Recently, we got acquainted again. The type of project I chose was influenced by these ladies:
What do Hege, Lynn, Andi, and Karen have in common? Obviously yarn. But besides the obvious, s-o-c-k-s. Whenever I read their blogs, there is sock knitting going on!
I bought these Knitter’s Pride Karbonz Double Pointed Needles in size 0 (2mm each) some time ago:
I had bought them to try to have tighter results with cuff down socks as my first three pairs are loose. They’re super light and easy to knit with this Lana Grossa Meilenweit 100 Stile, colorway 8010. My gauge is about 9 stitches per inch so that is a good sign. I’ll try it on after I get more done on the leg:
When I asked Princess Cupcake, “What does blue, orange, and purple remind you of? She responded, “A coral Reef.” As I love ocean life, this was perfect. I like having my own little rainforest of the sea.
Can I tell you how good it feels to knit again? I feel balanced and content.
What project right now is making you feel balanced and content?
