Books,  Knitting

Unraveled Wednesday.

I’ve spent most of today right here, drinking tea, snuggling Holly and alternately knitting and listening to The Immortalists (on my phone, which I had to pick up for the photo) with reading pages from To the North (which thanks to some actual daytime reading time has captured my attention … but not enough to totally set aside the knitting and listening!) … there might’ve even been a quick cat nap 🙂

also listening to The Immortalists … on my phone, which I had to pick up to take this photo

because yesterday afternoon/evening looked like this!

I spent an hour at Katie’s with my two favorite kiddos before picking up Sara. The three of us had a wonderful dinner out. I can’t remember the last time it was just the three of us. for dinner. or I got home at 10pm after an evening out!

observant readers might note that I’m wearing a new sweater … hopefully to be revealed later this week!

Thankfully there has been no unraveling on my latest project – a black cardigan! This is the second time I’ve knit Fine Sand (another one of Heidi Kirrmaier’s wonderful designs), so it’s helpful that the pattern is familiar. I don’t even really need to look at the knitting except on every 6th row; that’s when those pretty lifted increases happen. And that, my friends, is the secret to knitting black yarn – don’t look!

Happy Wednesday!
