Hope you all had a great Memorial Day weekend. We enjoyed a slow and relaxing weekend at home with lots of cooking and eating, crafting and playing, as well as bike riding and airplane flying. Our weekend somehow did not seem long enough and we are all counting down the days 'til summer vacation - just 18 days left.
This morning I drove the kiddos to school and stayed to do my volunteer work. I only had time to pick up a few groceries before picking up Abigail at 11:30. While waiting in the carpool line I began thinking about my knitting situation. In the last two months I have begun six projects - and each, in it's own unique and comical manner, has some major flaw.
Two of the sweaters in the bowl are nearly finished but will need to be frogged 'cause they just don't fit well. And I enjoy the process of knitting way too much to wear anything that doesn't feel just right. When we came home I decided I would start yet another sweater - one that I would actually wear - but what to knit? So I fired up my computer and got on Raverly.
However, at the exact moment that the cite came up, a certain four year old began screaming, "I'm hungry and I need attention!" - I kid you not. So off I go to make lunch - leftover macaroni and cheese for attention-seeking four-year-old and tomato and cucumber salad for me.
Favorite Simple Spring (and Summer) Salad:
apple cider vinegar
salt and pepper
After lunch, we went outside to ride bikes and draw with chalk while a certain kitty kept an eye on us from his rooftop perch.
Before long we were joined by two restless and 'starving' boys on green machines.
All the while my laptop sat, open to the Ravelry site, waiting for me to return.
Hours later I finally found my way to the computer and began a quick search.
Criteria: simple, wearable, can be knit with stash yarn.
Wish me luck. Better yet, knit it with me!
