Housework is for those who don’t knit.
When I first started to knit, I had to focus on the stitches. I thought somehow a stitch in the middle would magically fall off the needles if I wasn’t keeping an eye on them. Over time, I realized that wasn’t going to happen, and I could actually knit and do other items. I often knit while watching movies or binge watching shows. Classic fm is another favorite broadcast I enjoy. I love unwinding after a stressful day at the day job with a cup of tea, classical music, some knitting and, of course, Ernie snuggling. Recently, I found a fun podcast, Heather & Justin are creating Revolution, on Patreon. It’s sort of like a book club without having to meet or talk with other people. I call it my book club without the club (great for introverts). Right now, we’re reading 1984. Sometimes the British Hubby and I like to read the same book. Surprising, neither of us had read 1984. If you like classical literature and crafts, Heather is also the author of Craftlit. We’re currently listening to The Count of Monte Cristo. Or perhaps, you like to sit and contemplate the meaning of life? Sometimes Ernie and I just snuggle while I knit. He likes to tell me about his day.
The photo above shows my progress this week on the purpura projects.
- Meandering Lace Shawl: No progress on this one, I’m afraid.
- African Violet Shawl: This is still on the next 2-row stripe section.
Ernie had some unusual sleep spots this week. I’m not sure why he thought the trash bin was a good spot.
It’s the last weekend of May, I have one finished wip so far. I’m hoping to get at least three done this weekend.
