Three flowers

The plan was to go on vacation today but that didn’t work out so I’ll work Monday as well. That didn’t mean that I couldn’t celebrate vacation anyway, or at least the weekend. I started by working out, a great class that made me so happy, the new Sh’bam release is really extraordinary. Then I went out to dinner with friends and had the best time. On my way back home I found that someone had put three flowers in my bicycle basket, which was a sweet surprise. I hope it’s a sign this summer will continue to be fantastic. I really hope so. 

I thought it would be over by now

It looks like we’re in a mutual agreement, me and the mitt, about this relationship coming to an end. It’s over, it was fun while it lasted but it’s time to find amusement elsewhere. The mitt seems to agree because it simply flew by when I sat down to knit, we both want this to be over. Now it’s time to start looking for something new and fresh, to roam ravelry and swipe right or left depending on the allurement. It’s scary, as it always is to be between projects, but it might also be good for me. I will take my time.

Break up

I am so ready for the mitts to be done. This relationship is drawing its last breath and I just want it to be over. The mitts however, don’t seem to notice that we are not compatible anymore and are resisting the break up. Such needy mitts. I want to move on but they just won’t let me. We’ll see for how long I’ll care to keep this up. There are other fish in the sea, if you know what I mean.

A pink cloud

This is a very long week, the last before some vacation. I have so much to do and to stay sane I go to the gym in the evenings. The only thing that reminds me that it’s actaully summer is the landscape I run past on my occasional runs. Today I found a pink bush which slowed me down and gave me a worse time but it was worth it, one have to stop to smell the flowers sometimes, even when out on a run.

Now it’s knitting time for the rest of the evening.

Sand castles

Even though I’m pleased with my mitts and the charming pattern, I’m still not sure about the beige thing. My concern was so big that today, me and Jenny decided that they are not beige, they are sand colored. I feel much better after that decision. It’s summer after all, nature is full of colors, then I can’t knit beige. Sand colored, that’s much better. Sand, the beach, swimming, all things something you do in the summer. My next project will be colorful though, very colorful. I need to come up with something good.

Date night

We are friends again, me and the knitting. We had a long talk last night and today we went on a date and that date just lasted and we both had a great time. The knitting is still beige but the pattern is charming and we’ve really enjoyed each other’s company. I find the knitting charming and the knitting finds me gentle and I think this relationship will last for at least another mitt.

A little flirt

After about five inches I finally ot the upper hand on the mitt. We have had a fight today, me and the mitt. We were both being childish, giving each other the silent treatment. Then I decided to put some effort in, flirt a bit, and the mitt answered by flirting back and we have spent the evening together. We’ll see each other again, just to see how things goes. I’m carefully optimistic. Still really behind on the deadline though but at least we’re on speaking terms again.

To know where to put the effort

It’s midsummer’s eve and even though it looked like it wouldn’t be much of a shebang over here we did it anyway. Low key but classy. Casual in some ways and high rolling in others.The Christmas curtains are still up but we have strawberries and chocolate so who cares about the curtains? Everyone is happy and relaxed and full and did I mention there are strawberries?

Happy midsummer knitting!

Still sceptic

I’m still not sure about the beige knitting but I’m continuing anyway. The pattern is pretty but slow since all the knit stitches are knit through the back loop and since I knit cables without a cable needle. It’s a little tricky but I will work it out eventually. I’ll give it a few more repeats before I decide on anything drastic.

There is something wrong here

I’m in trouble. I do not have my things together at all it seems. I was going to make a pair of mitts for a friend, because it seemed like a good idea, I thought she might need a pair. Then, when I was at the yarn store, I looked at the yarn and I couldn’t decide on a color. I had absolutely no idea what color my friend would like. I don’t know her favorite color, I don’t know what she usually wears, I have no clues to go by at all. So what did I do? I picked beige! Beige! BEIGE! How could this be? Beige! I picked beige because it seemed neutral enough but once I finally cast on it hit me. Beige! Am I out of my mind? What made me pick beige? I doubt my friend will like my mitts now that they are beige but I still don’t know what color to pick instead. I guess I could just continue with my mitts but… I don’t know! There is certainly something wrong with my knitting right now. I guess it will all take a while to sort out.

Beige though. Beige!?
