"We should all do what,
in the long run, gives us joy,
even if it is only picking
or sorting the laundry."

Well, most of my yarn projects
are items you have already seen,
but I hope you can tell I've added
inches to both my cardi and my
basket. I have been knitting every
spare minute I can find.
I am not sure if I am getting
stronger or not, but I am finding
knitting with clothesline has become
much easier. This basket already
measures 10 inches tall and I would
like it to be at least 14 inches tall
before I begin the base. I have
a feeling I will be knitting quite
a few of these and with the
purchase of size 15 dpn's the
bind off should go much easier.
I am almost done with the body
of my cardi and am just hoping
I have enough yarn as it's looking
pretty close and I still have the
sleeves along with the ribbing to go.
My fingers are crossed.
Every summer I read The Gift of the Sea,
but this year I started a little
earlier; with temperatures reaching
95 degrees it feels like summer.
All the knitting for Lori's pockets
had me thinking of a book I read
to my children when they were
little, Katy No Pocket. While Katy
receives a slightly different pocket,
it's still a pocket and I thought the
wee one here would love the
story along with a new pocket
of her own. I have been thinking
about knitting a few dozen pockets,
writing a little note to put in each,
and storing them in my cedar
chest for future grand and great
grandchildren to have whether I
am here to hand them out or
What have you been up to this week?
