I hope you had a fabulous weekend!
I started the Heathcliff-half of the Catherine and Heathcliff

Just like there is only one Mr. Darcy, there is only one Heathcliff.
Love. Him them.

In other news...Mr. NK and I spent most of the weekend photographing
at and around Waterfront Park.
We were testing a rental camera and taking pictures of
everything and everyone that moved in front of us!

Although lunch didn't move...we took pictures of it, too! :) 

And you? Any fun happenings for you this past weekend?
Do share! 

For variety of mere nothings 
gives more pleasure 
than uniformity of something.

I haven't made much progress on my Regan sock...just finishing the heel since
its last post.

But I did take advantage of some sunshine this week
to take it out for some glamour shots!
I love the 'opposites attract' yarn from BDY...the complementary skeins are
lovely and the second sock really isn't a "second" sock if it's a different color - i.e. no SSS!

Are you doing anything fun for the weekend?!
My mother in law is visiting and I think we're going to hang out
at the waterfront...hopefully the weather will behave!

Whatever you do, I hope you have fun!

A faithful friend is a strong defense; 
And he that hath found him hath found a treasure.

I'm still recovering from losing an hour of sleep...how about you?

I love linen stitch heels...I now have two of them!
These socks are almost finished...


...I need something new to sink my teeth into.
Any suggestions as to which sock pattern I should knit next?

this hour

A new sock to greet a new season...well...
the weather on Friday was very spring-like and it seemed like a new season!

Just a prank though. The weekend brought gray and chilly temps...again.

Back to the socks...Cotty by Irishgirlieknits in STR 'vintage'.
Every now and then someone asks me how I do my picot cuff,
a very long time ago I made a little pictorial, here's the linkety if you're interested.

I spent an hour or so at my new favorite cafe photographing my sock with coordinating macarons
while waiting for an appointment...Mr. Whitman's words were running through my head.

Happiness, not in another place but this place...
not for another hour, but this hour. 
~ Walt Whitman
