This will be a quick post. I have to get the house and myself sparkling for my sister’s visit this afternoon.
It’s Spring finally! It’s so nice to be able to go for a walk and not have to navigate slippery, icy paths. I’ll walk in the rain over icy paths any day!
I had an impulse cast-on the other day and knit a new beret in less than 24 hours. I was looking at socks on Ravelry and was reminded that I had bought the booklet from Tin Can Knits, Handmade in the UK. I decided to buy the booklet when I purchased my Bonny Blue pattern for last summer’s tank. I’m so glad I remembered I had this and immediately cast on for the Rosewater Beret in a skein of Berocco Vintage DK I had leftover from another project.
Blue is a really hard colour to photograph, I’ve decided. This is not the true colour…
This is more like it:
I love it and wear it everywhere. Really!
I’m getting down to the last few inches of my ZickZack Scarf. It’s amazing. I will definitely be making another one of these and I think the key is to go wilder with the colours. Stay tuned.
We had a nice afternoon to go for a walk… but it was a bit too ambitious for me and I was exhausted by the time we got home. This view made it all worthwhile though.
It was about 9k in all, and all downhill going to the water and unfortunately all uphill coming back. My Fitbit says we walked up the equivalent of 55 stories. I had a dish of ice cream as my reward.
Okay, I’m off to get the house ready for the white-glove inspection and welcome my sister!
Have a good week!
