Project Planning, Yet Again

 The weather around here has been so odd this winter.  Almost 70 degrees the other day, pouring rain in the morning and sunny in the afternoon.  The groundhog predicts six more weeks of winter, but we haven't had a recognizable winter this year, so I don't know what that means.

I've been enjoying knitting so much lately, but I'm afraid my knitting time is about to be greatly reduced, thanks to my class starting tomorrow.   I'm hoping to knit a few quick baby knits for a couple of babies that are due soon.  I'm looking at this, this, this, and this.  Or maybe something from this book.  So much knitting, so little time.

I stopped by a hardware store this afternoon and picked up two samples of paint for the kitchen.  I had planned to paint this past summer, but my broken foot prevented that from happening.  And even though I don't really have the time for it, I am so tired of the blandness of our kitchen that I'm going to figure out a way to get it done.  My goal is something beachy yet serene feeling, like Alicia's house.  

 I made it to the beach this morning (I've been going in the afternoon most of the week)' and I'm so glad I did.  Even though the wind coming off the water took my breath away, the light was gorgeous.  such a great way to start my day.





 Happy weekend!


  1. What great beach images......we live by Lake Michigan and it doesn't look so lovely as your beach right now!!! Happy baby hat knitting. I knit a few in January and then saved them ...I use the wooly worm head baby beret pattern. Very easy....
    someone just told she is grandma again, so I gave some of the hats to her for her new grandson. I love having them on hand...for giving.

  2. You don't really need to look further than your own back yard for your beach palette, do you?

    That last little cardigan you linked is adorable.

  3. Beautiful way to start your day. Good luck with all the baby items, hope you can get some great knitting time this weekend.
