Sweet spot

The sky is so dark and dreary today. Every once in a while the sun tries to break through the clouds, but all it can manage is a pathetic little brightening that lasts for about ten minutes. I can’t take a picture of my finished Regia Bamboo socks if there’s no light, can I? They’re soft and comfy, though. And it’s almost cool enough to wear them.

So I’ll give you some pictures of my mother’s favorite spot, the pond in her “back yard.” She says that she loves to go outside in the evenings after dinner to sit for a while, and that it makes her feel very peaceful. I’m so happy that she has this spot of sweetness in her life.

This was a busy week — the first half was spent wringing my hands over the book review I wrote for this week’s Knitter’s Review. What a lot of misspent energy! It turned out well and I’m quite proud of it. The second half of the week was work-busy, with the new session of our local Knitting Circle thrown in. It was nice to see everyone after the summer, and as usual our chatter reached dangerous decibel levels! I worked on my first Red Scarf scarf, which I finished that night. I’ll take a picture when the sun comes out again (along with the socks).

I spent the morning deciding what to think about. I’m spending the afternoon thinking about doing something productive. Along the way I’ve knit about three inches on a new sock (the Petals Collection Hyacinth yarn I mentioned yesterday), and it’s the perfect knitting for a contemplative day. I don’t think there wil be any spinning today — I’m feeling too much like lounging! Soon, soon…

  1. it is a lazy lounging day for sure — but I had to empty out the cabinet in my kitchen as it was falling off the wall. Maybe it will push us into looking into the new kitchen.. loved the basket full of socks yesterday – you must have many baskets full with all your socks. πŸ˜€

  4. I can’t blame your Mom for wanting to spend time by her pond. It’s a lovely spot. I’ve been wondering about the Regia Bamboo yarn. I’m looking forward to seeing your socks.

  6. Oh I love rainy Sundays. They’re like a gift out of time. Free for doing nothing if you choose. Beautiful photography, as usual, my dear.
