Chevron

What a nice weekend!  It was just one of those nice weekends that turned out to be exactly what we needed.  We had a bit of running around Saturday and then I had a good visit with a friend.  We met at a local coffee shop – I got there first, so I was sitting there knitting and waiting her when someone came over and started talking about knitting  – it was Kathleen.  I’ve been reading her blog for a while and commenting and even emailing.  I knew she lived in the same town, but we had never met until Saturday.   Small world, eh?    The neat thing about meeting other knitters is that instant connection as the conversation just flows through patterns, yarns, needles…. 

Yesterday, we stayed in and had a completely lazy day – and it was so nice.  Just a fire, movies and football, knitting and a nap…just what I needed.  Cieara was at friends, and briefly came home before heading out again to another friends…..so it was just the two of us.   Very quiet day, but really very nice.

You know what else I apparently needed this weekend?  A new project….

I finished the first Nutkin sock on Saturday, so I needed something to bring to the coffee shop – I didn’t want to haul Cobblestone with me.  So a Chevron Scarf seemed like the perfect project….portable, easy and interesting.  And that is pretty much all I did this weekend….

This is Claudia Handpaint – not sure of the colorways, but I really like how it looks.  And this is such a good pattern  – although I think I’m still at the “love it” stage and not the “hate this and can’t wait to get it done” stage. 

Today I have a dentist appointment and then I’m going to the gym.  And that is it – nothing else planned.  So I think I’ll work on Cobblestone – and start the first sleeve.  Yea!

If you have the day off, yea!  And if you had to work….sorry…..

Enjoy the day!

    Jeanne- You are so right- don’t you wish the “love it” stage could last for the whole project?

    It’s interesting, don’t you think?

    Actually I like the colourways – beautiful choice for a scarf. I hope the visit to the dentist wasn’t too painful.

    That is a beautiful scarfs. Scarfs always draw me in in the beginning then about half way through I hate them. Thus the reason I only have a couple of knit scarves and one is way to short to actually wear. The other is about 10 feet long though.

    Hi! I’m sorry I missed that you had left a comment for me earlier – thank you! 🙂 I think the Nutkin socks look AWESOME, and I’m totally using your link right now to add them to my queue. All of your projects look gorgeous, and bless you for having patience for scarves… you saw my lace shawl… I might have to commission you. 😉

    Lovely colors for the Chevron scarf! It is so cool you randomly ran into a blog-buddy. I’ve had daydreams about that happening. 🙂
