The days are getting longer therefore shedding light on Life itself. Trust me, it's been quite an eye-opener.
On to my knitting.
I dyed this yarn a sunny yellow and cast on another shawl. It's nearing the finish line and I can't wait to block it. It's mine. All mine.
I wanted to start a sweater and I dug in the stash. Found 2 skeins of Melody Superwash and a few skeins of Knitpicks Gloss Fingering. Took my size US 6 needles and cast on. This sweater is a secret so I can't mention the intended person but I know it will be deeply appreciated.
One of Life's little eye-opener is my gift knitting.
I'm taking a new look at it. Some people just don't either a)appreciate the knitting or b) don't have a clue on the countless hours choosing the pattern, yarn and time knitting the gift.
I've taken notice to this over the years and have zapped a few from the gift knitting list. I must admit this allows more time to knit for those who appreciate the hard work and a little time to knit for self :).
Another of Life's little eye-openers are my pets. While Mr. Bettis can be quite a handfull at times he truly brings me joy (please don't spread this around).
My pets always greet me as if I'm a new friend. They're a happy bunch (sometimes a bit too happy but hey, you gotta take it as they give it).
If Mr. Bettis appreciated my knitting a little more, he'd get a handknit sweater but I don't see that happening anytime soon. Instead I'll cast on for those who appreciate handknits or for self :).
So how do you decide who gets your handknit items?
