Hello friends and hello Friday! also hello longer days and hello daffodils?! I took the photo at the top of this post at 5pm yesterday. and yes that is actual sun shining on those green shoots. It’s not unusual for us to see daffodils blooming in February, and it still feels weird to see shoots coming up from the ground in January.
Thinking about … Holy Inefficiency. The closing thought from the second week of the Reclaiming Sabbath series I shared a few weeks back is to ponder what in my life would be richer and more meaningful (perhaps sacred) if done less efficiently. walks with Lucy. food! sleep. pretty much EVERYthing to do with relationships, so maybe this blog? (some)reading.
Grateful for … sunshine. two very foggy days to get me totally into Bleak House (iykyk). Opera Wednesday. time to tidy (and how it feels when I’m done). Costco roast chicken.
Inspired by … finishing a bright purple sweater and two other colorful projects (that are still drying) to start another colorful project. The Sophie Scarf has been all over my Instagram feed these past weeks and I think I found the perfect colorful, spring-time friendly yarn in my leftovers bin (I have three leftover balls, so this could be a fun repeat project if it works out!)
Finished! Cliffhanger! Heidi published the pattern on Wednesday so I can share my finished photos. Y’all – this is such a fun knit. The construction isn’t like anything I’ve done before (and of course Heidi includes a diagram to show you how it all comes together), and it works out beautifully … and it fits! and it’s easy to wear!
I knit this in Knit Picks Swish Worsted and I couldn’t be happier with how it washed/dried and wore (for two straight days).
What are you TGIF’ing this week?
