I haven’t yet unraveled the hat but maybe this weekend. My travel packing got a bit rushed after some last minute work obligations but I had this shawl on the needles so I grabbed the project bag and my Kindle for the plane. It was the perfect travel knitting. There is a four row repeat that was so easy to memorize so I could pick it up and put it down without getting off track. Next up is a lace section. I am going to use that pale yarn for the lace to make it pop.
I have been listening to The Great Bridge and even though I am only about halfway through the book, it was good background for our walk across the Brooklyn Bridge. It was very busy on the bridge and a bit blustery but the views and the history are amazing.
I started reading Rhythms of Rest while in NYC (it had been lingering on my Kindle) and it seems to be just what I need. One idea that is circling is how to plan your week to make space for a sabbath. The author suggests that you look at your sabbath day, whatever day you are choosing, as the middle of your week. Use the days leading up to plan (getting things done, meals planned) and the days just after to reflect.
This weekend Tolt is having an anniversary party and the folks from Making Magazine will be there. Did you get your issue? Mine arrived the day before my trip and I have only just begun to savor it. I am looking forward to seeing some of the lovely items in person.
Happy Wednesday. Off to visit Kat.
