Fabulous Friday 😎

How’s the day for you? Is it fabulous? Fun? Freaky?

Not everyone looks forward to the end of the week. For some the weekend means time at home, or time with family. If you have wonderful people around you I encourage you to enjoy the moments as they come. If those around you cause you stress perhaps find those small moments that bring a smile to your heart.

Here’s a peak at my Friday bullet journal:

Fabulous Friday

I was stuck this morning as I waited for inspiration for a doodle. Then the poppy popped into my head then onto the page.

My journal process in its simplest form takes me about 15 minutes while enjoying my coffee. Some days I do much, much more.

On the needles:

  • Mittens that were ordered for Christmas
  • Teal sock , ongoing
  • Marled sweater
  • Surprise sweater

On the wheel: multi-coloured blue for an entralac scarf

The goal this weekend is to finish the first of 3 pairs of mitts. This is doable

Do you have plans for the weekend?

What ever you do I hope you find times to smile and laugh. If not, find a cozy place and care for yourself..

Til again,

Doll

Entrelac Knit-along

So I’ve begun.

#entrelackal

Join me.

Have you chosen yarn? Found a pattern? Ravelry has a free pattern. Nimbleneedles has a great tutorial that really helped me to find clarity.

I’m not going to give you step by step instructions but will share my progress here, on Facebook and Instagram. On November 30th ,I’ll draw names from those who hash tag #entrelackal with pics for a special gift.

Let’s have fun creating together.

Through the tears

(Cross posted from musingsfromthemanse.com)

This Remembrance Day has me filled with tears so much more than other years. Perhaps it’s because I’m older; feeling the loss of seeing loved ones and receiving hugs.

On Sunday I spoke about how “he (Jesus) began to weep”. Those types of tears we shed when a friend is gone; someone close to us dies is very real and raw.

Tears are a normal part of life. My fear when my Dad died was if I started to cry that I would not be able to stop. Of course, that was not real as I’ve had many, many days of joy and laughter, singing and being me, without tears.

Jesus wept. We weep as we remember. Emotions well up within us that are unbidden, unwanted perhaps, and almost always for me, over-whelming.

But that’s OK. We live, breathe, laugh and sing, and at some point say farewell to those we love. Right now I feel with the rest of this Nation and the world the tears shed long ago and tears shed today.

At the end of our days may we have someone to “Sing me (us) home”.

May you find the blessing in your tears today. I believe I’ve found mine.

Highland Pines update

We had to work fast to get the chickens into their new living quarters. Never a dull moment.

Enjoy

As it happens

And it happens almost every time. I finish a project then can’t decide what to work on next.

I’m working on a shawl right now that is an ongoing part of #cwcfallshawlalong and would like to finish before the end of October.

However, I can’t decide on beginning a sweater, working on more socks (already started) or beginning a couple of items I’ve been commissioned to knit.

So socks?

OR a sweater?

I’ve not used either pattern but they are my wish list.

What do you think?

I’m spinning again

Well, I was taught to spin a little every day. That’s what I try to do and most days I’m successful.

Spinning Friday – a very short video

At some point I’ll need Nick to be the camera person so that this can flow more smoothly. For now, this is what I have.

I’m so excited about the way this wool is cleaning up and spinning. I’m blending lots of scrap fibre I have to add texture and colour. This is a 2 ply yarn, knitting on 5.5mm needles for #cwcfallshalwalong. I’m joining Sara and many others as we knit together – but safely apart. You can see what she’s up to here:

For me, my bread is done, the coffee hot, and the day is beautiful.

What are you working on today?
