Weekends are for knitting

We had a lovely, blustery November weekend here. Lots of rain and wind and then snow. It was perfect weather for homemade soup and bread and knitting. I finally finished the first sock of this pair. They are for me, and I started them last fall. Maybe by next fall I will have the completed pair.

Yarn Along

Ginny from has inspired this post. I finished this dish rag yesterday. I love hand knit dish rags. I just started reading this book. I bought it because of the cover picture (I know it is covered up, sorry!). Maddie from Persisting Stars took this photograph and I have been enchanted with it for a long time. When I heard it was being used on the cover of this book I had to buy it.

The last couple of weeks have been rough. I have been so busy and I have not taken the time to relax. I miss my knitting time. Knitting is good for my soul, it makes me a better person. I am a better mother, wife, and friend to myself when I knit. During the week I usually have too much going on to knit, but weekends are for knitting. During the week I homeschool my children, raise and nurture them, cook mostly from scratch (I do on weekends too), run errands, take the children to various lessons, and go to school full-time myself (thankfully all of my classes are online at this point). Weekends are for knitting, and baking, and Making, and just slowing down.

The last couple of weekends there has been no knitting or slowing down, and I am really feeling it. I have been knit-less and I am not happy about it. I do not think it would be wise for me to wait until this weekend to knit again. I am going to go bake some chocolate chip cookies, make myself a cup of tea, and knit... my homework will still be here tomorrow.

Ginny from has inspired this post. I am reading this lovely book to my children right now. The knitting is a sock for my husband.

Weekends are for knitting

Weekends are for knitting, but there was no knitting this weekend. This weekend there was pumpkin carving and baking and partying galore. We baked brownies and bread and cookies and made soup. We roasted pumpkin seeds and painted and laughed. We played games and listened to spooky music and ate so many tasty treats. Happy Halloween!
