Monday Meditations

Monday Meditations

There is much I am pondering this morning…

There are 21 days left of winter, and my stitching is getting nicely “full” and I spent some time this weekend thinking about how to best use these remaining days so that when winter is done, my stitching “feels done” and too.

That extra-ordinary enabler, Vicki, posted something on IG and it lodged itself in my brain. I spent much of yesterday looking through my stash to see what I might have that might work for Larissa’s upcoming MKAL. This gets bonus points as well because I am itching to knit something besides a sweater these days. I would really love to put something together that has a “lovely watercolor effect” so stay tuned!

Finally, I am anxious to get my copy of Making’s UNIFORM and to get myself prepped, I am going to get going on a dress for spring. This weather has me itching for something new! I am a bit nervous and will be making a muslin over the next few weeks, which will hopefully be successful! I am reading up on “how to” and then attempting to trace a pattern this week!

This is what will occupy my Monday… what about you? What is on your mind today?

Long Weekending

Long Weekending

That’s right, the weekend carries on one more day. Thus far it has been a very good weekend with lots of replenishment time!

And, with no plumbing or equally un-fun tasks!

There was Olympic watching and yes, knitting – lots of knitting! I have to say, I just LOVE how these decreases look. I can’t wait to finish it. I only have about 10 rows to go, so I can see the finish line. I also confess, I have become addicted to watching Curling – especially the Norwegian Men’s Pants, err Team! Haha!

Today, the weather is supposed to be warmer and we are hoping for some dry moments to get in a nice walk!

If you have a long weekend as well, I hope you are enjoying it! See you all back here tomorrow!

Sometimes Monday | 2.12.18

Sometimes Monday | 2.12.18

Comes too darned fast! (And, looks like a budding sweater and, I need to add dust the blinds to my list! Haha)

I don’t know about you, but my weekend sort of flew by and not in at all a pleasant way.

Saturday, someone (not me) had the brilliant idea to replace the faucet in the kitchen….

Five plus hours later found us with no new faucet, lots of bad words, and can I tell you that I have some new crazy respect for plumbers who can lay in a cabinet to fix things.

Five plus hours that I could have been watching the Olympics and knitting.

Enter Sunday which was moving almost as fast as the Free Style Cross Country Skiers. And, again I am sitting here wondering where my knitting time went!!!

I am over the halfway point of the body of my Carbeth and all my plans for speeding through this knit are going up in smoke, sort of like my weekend! That’s right, in the brief moments I found to knit this weekend produced 10 inches of knitting!

This morning added to the ironic quality of the un-weekend, after yesterdays warm rains, today we woke to 8-ish inches of snow and Steve has another “snow day”. And, on a morning that I had NOTHING on my list but some quality time with the DVR and my knitting.

I hope your weekend was infinitely better than mine and that your Monday is full of only things that make you happy!

Sometimes Monday’s should come with a nap

Sometimes Monday’s should come with a nap

Last night was a light on sleep night here at Casa del KatKnits! The game was actually a game and we watched it to the end! I thought the commercials were not all that super and the sound at the halftime show was, well, poor sounding. I am not sure what they did to make it even harder to hear, but they absolutely succeeded! And, it was extra special when the underdog won the game! Congrats to the Eagles for this momentous win!

It was a good weekend for knitting, and I am making great strides on my Strokkur. I am almost through the waist decreases. It is just simple round and round knitting right now, so I don’t need to pay much attention.

I also have completed clue 1 on KK’s Mystery Socks! And, I like them thus far! Very much!

In my sleep deprived state today, my list is happily short on things and it might even include a bit of a nap this afternoon!

I hope your Monday is short and if it cannot be that it is full of good things!

Yay, Monday?

Yay, Monday?

It was a full weekend that perhaps went just a bit too fast.

But, Stopover is done – save weaving in ends and just in time for the return of winter tonight!

I had planned on swatching for Strokkur over the weekend, but I outside of finishing Stopover, I barely knit. I know, what is up with that?

I might have entirely lost my mind, but I am going to join team rules schmules and do a little Olympic knitting, because a sweater and socks are not enough. Hahaha!

Fortunately, my list is not overwhelming today and includes finishing slipper number 2, weaving in ends, and swatching!

I hope you have a happy Monday and I am wondering what is on your list today?
