Well Hello! Happy Thursday! We have almost made it my friends. Another weekend is right around the corner.
My knitting basket is not the grab and take with you kind of African basket we all love. This is the extra large, more like a small laundry basket version of the basket, and it’s full of works in progress. It should probably bother me that I don’t have any of these completed, but most are close and I will say, I’m quite happily knitting along, so it doesn’t bother me much, except that when one has a blog and wants it to be about knitting, that someone might need to finish this and that in a timely manner. Yikes. It won’t be long now.
A quick step outside this morning to check out the day, had me saying “Brrrr.” It’s a chilly but beautiful morning. The rains moved out last night. My geraniums are particularly happy with the balance of sun and rain the past few days.
The wild honeysuckle is in full bloom. I love the flowers, but it’s a natural nuisance to the area and tries to take over all the land. (I’ll be trimming you the moment your blooms are gone missy.)
My plum tree apparently has no idea that it’s only April, its plums getting bigger everyday. Last year they did not grow well, but in years past, we typically made enough plum jelly to last the whole year from this one tree.
The last of my flowering azaleas has opened. It’s always a late bloomer being close to the house and not getting as much sun, but it’s my favorite color.
I’m thinking as I type of all the knitting baskets, bags, and even bowls among us, and I’m wondering what project could be in yours that needs to be finished soon? This makes me think we could all plan to make tea together this weekend, maybe even starting tonight, and finish one up! Doesn’t that sound like a good idea? A little knit-along over tea! On Sunday morning, we can share what we’ve finished over the next couple days. If you’d like me to post a picture of your project, just send a photo and description to my email by Saturday evening and I’ll be sure to share it. firstname.lastname@example.org
I’m hoping today is a glorious day of sunshine and great temperatures where you are. If it’s not, at least that (rain, sleet, cold) will make for great knitting time. Isn’t it wonderful that our hobby is great in all weather?
