Yesterday afternoon the house was quiet and I had time for a cup of coffee and some knitting. I started a new knitting project. No, I am not finished with the silk scarf yet, don't ask. I needed something with lots of stockinette stitch. A project I could do mindlessly without looking at a chart to knit and this is it. . .till I get to the front, where there is a lace panel that will take some attention. The yarn was in my stash, yeah! Love shopping my stash it's free. I purchased the yarn some time ago for a different pattern but decided against that one in favor of this one. Looks very nice so far.
The yarn is Valley Yarns, Sugarloaf from WEBS. All you knitters out there know WEBS, right? Merino wool and microfiber, whatever that is, it's positively soft. The pattern is in the new KNITS magazine.To help me to relax and better enjoy the process I applied some of my Young Living Essential Oil Peace & Calming. This blend of therapeutic grade essential oils is amazing for calming and relaxing people and animals. I have also used it on horses, dogs and cats. I have been marketing these essential oils for many years and am proud to be involved with a company that products oils of the highest quality. If you would like more information about essential oils drop me a line. Last night Mom found yet another box that had not been unpacked from the move. This is a box of china she collected over the years. It was like Christmas morning. She had been wondering where the rest of her GrandMothers china was. The first picture is of the family pieces. I just love the small pitchers with the violets on them.This picture is just assorted pieces from Mom's china cabinet. Looks like it's time to remove and rearrange the china in the cabinets.
Last nights sunset looking out the back door. The first shot was lovely for about 60 seconds then this happened. I am always amazed how quickly the colors change. Enjoy.
