It was one of those weekends that moved at warp speed, and before we knew it Sunday night was upon us with a new week was looming on the horizon.
I did manage to finish my Eavesdrop Sweater…tee-shirt on Friday night! Woo! That means it got a nice wash and a bit of blocking and I wore it on Sunday! I really like it and I love the yarn! Sparrow is lovely yarn to make a garment with. The only thing I have to say at all with even a hint of negativity is that it biases a bit, thus the blocking. The Sparrow washes up beautifully – it is soft and drapey, but not at all clingy and it is perfect for a summer tee! Glamor shots coming later this week, so stay tuned.
When I took pictures on Sunday afternoon, I was just about ready to begin the ribbing and bind off the Beekeeper Cowl – all I have left to do is pick up the button bands on the sides and find some buttons to sew on! It is an easy knit – a very easy pattern which made for some nice mindless knitting over the weekend. There are 2 size options, and I made the larger size. I see more Beekeeper Cowl knitting in my future which will give me a nice jump on some Christmas gift knitting!
And, I managed to swatch and cast on for another Vodka Lemonade…And, yes… the summer theme of “orange knitting” continues!
Lots of time spent outdoors this weekend – despite the crazy heat. I dragged Steve out to the patio to sit under the pergola for happy hour eats on Friday and he survived. No mixed drinks this weekend, but rather a nice cold home-brewed beer really hit the spot and it was the perfect kick off of the weekend.
The forecast this week is summer weather on steroids – hot weather and very little rain. Which means walking early and keeping the garden watered! If you are sharing in the hot weather, here is to working air conditioning and lots of iced tea!
I hope you all had a great weekend and happy Monday everyone!
