Quilt With Us

I'm almost back to normal, and finally getting some knitting done. My Sandy Beach Scarf is coming along.

The orange stitch marker shows the halfway point in the length. The yarn is Manos del Uruguay Lace, alpaca, silk and cashmere.

Soren's hat is finished and in the mail to him. I used this easy pattern:

My Sock Ruler arrived:

Can't wait to try it out!

Things have been pretty quiet this past week (like Lake Wobegon?), but I got out with the pups on Saturday, so they could have a run on the street. I'm hoping to get my strength back, so I can get back to quilting, which takes more energy than knitting. The Sundance Film Festival starts soon, too, so I need to be ready for that.

In the meantime, this week's cuteness is a photo of Johan's first swim lesson:

What's on my needles: Making good progress on the Sandy Beach Scarf.

What's on my Featherweight: Still put away in its case.

What's on my loom: Some warp for another scarf, but still folded up.

What's on my iPad/iPhone: Just finished Cousin Kate by Gergette Heyer from Audible, darker than her usual, reminiscent of Jane Eyre. Finished reading Dead Center by Danielle Girard, not really into anything new yet.

What's my app of the week: Netflix. When I was too weak to read, I was able to watch movies on my iPad.

What's in my wine glass: Redwood Creek Pinot Noir, a delightful new find.

What's my tip of the week: Dried onions and garlic come in handy if health or weather don't permit getting out to the store. Extra bananas can be sliced and frozen on a cookie sheet to save for when fresh food is hard to come by.

I wore my Sandy Beach Scarf when we went out to dinner and the theater tonight. Warm, like a sandy beach.

Johan is adorable! I'm glad you are feeling better and that Soren will soon have warm ears.

The scarf is Row 1: K all sts, Row 2: *K1, P1, rep from * across, K1. Very simple and mindless. I photographed it on my dining room table, which is covered with a log cabin quilt and then a layer of plastic "upholstery."

The stitches on the scarf look very defined.  Is it more than a knit stitch in the first photo?  Lovely yarn and background!

Oh, and glad you are getting over what you had!

So glad to hear you are feeling better, Peggy! I have had some crud since before Christmas and I am finally feeling okay, too. 

Love Johan's swimming lesson! So cute!

I'm feeling much better. I even got some of the H-word done. The Sandy Beach Scarf is blocking, and I've finished the ribbing on a hat for myself. Dreaming about getting out my sewing machine and starting another quilt.

We are coming off tamiflu and today was the first time I felt really good. Sounds like you will have a busy schedule coming up. Be sure to get a lot of rest...
