... delightful to sit and knit in either place. The back has a long view of the valley. I seem to prefer sitting there in the evenings as the sky turns dark and the city lights up. In the morning, the sun is in the front and the world wakes up slowly. There's a deer and fawns wandering the property. We've had "breakfast" together several times. Luckily, they prefer the bushes across the way to my flower garden.
I'm working on a wide to skinny, throw it over the shoulder and drape it around and down the front, shawl-like scarf using some recycled yarn from a sweater. It's two yarns knit together. One is 100% cotton, indigo dyed that looks like jean and the other is a variegated green and blue, hand-dyed rayon. I knit the previous sweater and it made me look frumpy. Hopefully this new interpretation is better. The pattern is so basic that it has my mind bubbling with other options for knitting variations. I may try some of those too.
Along with the coffee table that's waiting to be covered in buttons, I recently bought this chair at Habitat for Humanity's ReStore. It's in excellent shape and just needs a good cleaning although I'm contemplating painting it turquoise - possibly for my studio.
Sigh... a new addiction. If you've never tried Ben & Jerry's Coffee Toffee Crunch ice-cream... and you have the potential to be addicted to ice-cream... and you shouldn't be eating ice-cream anyway... I'd suggest that you don't taste it. YUMMY. I'm now bribing myself that I can have some if I do this or that activity first only what I really need is to bribe myself out of eating it. Hmm... how much fabric does it take to quit eating ice-cream - LOL.
Today, more knitting. I'm almost done the scarf and then a look through the pattern drawer for a new dress to wear to a wedding in a couple weeks. Right now, Lyn Mizono's Vogue 1410 is top of the think about list... with the armhole raised... I'll try a muslin first.
Talk soon - Myrna
Grateful - sharing with the deer
I am treating you as my friend, asking you to share my present minuses in the hope that I can ask you to share my future plusses.
