The world is a bit dreary in our corner today. The afternoon brought angry gray skies which made taking any photographs difficult. The afternoon also brought a sad boy who was disappointed that we forgot his class potluck this evening until it was too late. I really hate it when I forget one of the kids' events like this. Since our kids go to 3 different schools, I try to maintain some semblance of control over our schedules, and if I tell them we'll attend an event, we do...unless I forget. Sigh. Never mind that most of the food probably wouldn't be suited to what we generally eat. That kind of comment to a sad boy certainly wouldn't have helped him feel better. Fortunately, an after dinner treat of an ice cream shop run seemed to alleviate some of the sadness.
I guess beauty sometimes shines through even on dreary days.
Did I mention the whole afternoon left me in a bit of a funk? Fortunately, I'm finding the knitting I've been doing very relaxing. Here's to a knit-ful evening!
A gift for Paulie that I worked on late last week: the elf cap from Handknit Holidays. I really love that pattern, and this yarn was a dream to work with as well.
I've been really enjoying working on this project for the last several days...a loose knit scarf for myself. (Something for me? Say it isn't so!) This yarn, so full of texture and deep color, was purchased from Shivaya Naturals to benefit Doctors Without Borders, and the pattern is Faggotting from Lace and Eyelets.
