Weeks that feel unending makes for a fly-by weekend…or at least that is how it seemed here. The weekend was over before it began.
But maybe not… because I got so much done! My planner set up is working wonderfully and it feels good to have everything together. (sorry, I had planned on getting a photo this morning but it is dark and dreary and pouring down rain…sigh)
In a scrolling of Twitter last week, I noticed that Kate Atherley was doing an impromptu sock KAL. I found some yarn and cast on Thursday night while we caught up on Big Brother and I managed to find time over the weekend to almost complete the leg of the first sock! Good thing because the heel is out sometime today!
Making good progress on my comfort-knitting sock. Anyone up for a little KAL? You need sock yarn and needles to get 32 sts in 4 ins/10cm. I am using @CandySkein Yummy Fingering in Ecto Cooler and 2.25mm. pic.twitter.com/rHjZ4ymCh0

But the most fun was beginning the process of knitting acorn caps, which I did while watching The Trial of the Chicago 7 on Netflix. It was so good (and perfect for cranking out several little caps!)
Finally, I want to share my meditation for the week. I saw this late last week on Facebook and have used this meditation many times over the weekend…it is just exactly what I needed so I thought I’d share it with you. I hope you find it a help for your week ahead!
Happy Monday, everyone! See you all back here on Wednesday!
those acorns are Adorable! and thank you for the devotion. I often say the first half of it (ending Be) and I LOVE the idea of saying the second half and ending up with the whole verse. Lovely!
Cute acorns!! Love the little caps on them. And that is nice looking Fall-ish yarn for your socks. I’ll look at your link once I am home (currently at the office…)
Acorns, socks, and a lovely meditation make for a pretty good weekend! I haven’t attempted any acorns myself, but I love yours and the knit caps make them even cuter!
Thanks for sharing the meditation. Instant calm. Much needed.
Kat, thanks for sharing the Bishop’s meditation. I always meditate on verse (I do Eknath Easwaran’s 8 Point Path)–but I’ve never done it like she suggests. And for that Psalm, especially, I can feel the impact that must have. I might try that as a nighttime meditation. And those acorns! I adore them! I love when something so small in size can make such big happiness. So glad it was a rich weekend for you.
I am off to find out about Eknath Easwaran’s 8 Point Path! Thank you 🙂
I am delighted to see my handspun in the form of those darling acorns — I totally didn’t recognize it! I agree that the weekend seemed to fly by after a week that dragged, but I suppose it always does.
I know you identify as a Michigander, but you just outed yourself as a Pittsburgher by saying it’s “pouring down rain.” 😉
Kat, your acorns are so cute! I want to make them.
I love the acorns and that’s a great fall color for your socks, too. I haven’t knit socks in a while but I’m definitely feeling the urge lately.
Your acorns are adorable, do you have a pattern to share, I would love to make some. My weekend flew by too, the weeks seem to be doing that too round here. Hope you are having a good week.
Those acorns are so dang cute! 🙂
Sweet little acorns and I love the fall color in that sock. Sounds like your week was off to a good start.
