TJ became unwell last weekend with a cold that struck fast and fierce. On top of allergies he's been experiencing, and along with the cold, he was doing pretty poorly. I was playing nurse for most of the week. There was a LOT of tea brewed. Much making, reheating and eating of chicken soup. There was some simple bread baking. Easy, comforting, nourishing meals.
I wasn't feeling too great myself this week, although for different reasons. My monthly period had me at it's mercy, and I was feeling pretty low. The really not good kind of low... So we were quite the pair here this week!
Yarn-ing around... There was a LOT of lovely quiet time the last few days. And when it's quiet, a LOT of yarn-ing happens! My Ocean Ripple Blanket received a lot of hooky attention... (Yes, two baskets going for my current projects... ;)
I finished my Good Morning Lace Cowl! I just love wearing it! This knit cowl project felt signifcant for three big reasons. 1. Learning better knitting in the round techniques. 2. Better grasp of lace pattern knitting. 3. First wet blocked project--and what great shaping wet blocking gives to wool! All in all, a wonderful learning project. It's given me confidence returning to knitting, and working on more challenging knitting!
More yarn-ing around... learning the anatomy of a crescent-shaped shawl. I want to knit or crochet a crescent moon-shaped shawl. Sooo many great patterns out there. I found a crocheted one I like, but I want to jazz it up a bit, so I'm trying to see if I can learn how to chart something I have in mind... and get it right!
Luna... has been such a good girl while we've been in a slump this week... She's been content to play adventures with her "imaginary friend", and scampering around after her toys. She likes to play hide and seek under the dining room table cloth. This girl of ours is just tooo CUTE!
Today TJ & I celebrate our 17th wedding anniversary! (Seventeen... 17!!) Now that TJ is turning the corner with the cold/allergies, we're hoping we can take time during the weekend now to mark the occasion!
Oh, and do stop by here on Monday, if you can... I have something fun to share!!! :)))
How was your week? Wishing you all a LOVE-ly weekend ahead!
