Weekending #knitallthethings

I am behind on almost everything in my life with the exception of knitting. And honestly, all I want to do is knit all the things. So this weekend I loaded all my out of the house activities into Saturday and the took Sunday off from being in the world. I entertained the not so tiny person and when he took a nap, so did I. We played, read books, ate snacks, looked at worms and sticks at the park. It was lovely.

The weekend was also full of knitting. I cast on my Stopover – had to change yarn choices but still knitting from stash. I wanted to use that blue but I didn’t have the right contrasts so there is more grey on my needles. After checking with Kat, I stuck with the waist shaping as written. I have 4 inches left on the body. Then I am going to try knitting the sleeves magic loop and two at a time. I also made it to the sleeve divide on my Birkin. Now I have inches and inches of meditative stockinette to fill my evenings.

And now I guess I will tackle Monday.,

  1. It sounds like a fantastic weekend! You can’t go wrong with knitting, tiny people, and a day off from life 🙂

  2. Yay for tiny person time. and worms. Having a grandson after raising two daughters was a real learning for me. Things that slither was a big deal (thankfully, things that crawl wasn’t ever a problem for me 😉

  3. I love the colors you’re knitting with!!! Happy – happy – happy! I, too, am hopelessly behind on all the things (with a few exceptions), but I’m beginning to accept that as my normal “life state.” XO

  4. Wow! You are really making progress. What a fun weekend. Naps and playtime are the best in my book (I could do without the worms…but I would deal with them if I had to – LOL). I picked up Sigla again after a year off and am loving it!

  5. Ditto to all the comments…your weekend was a perfect example of “extreme self care,” – surrounding , being with the people and doing things that you love.
