coffee time

Some progress on this sock has been made since it last aired.
Leg - done.
Heel flap - done.

Not too bad considering I have four other socks on the needles and am working on a test knit project that needs to be finished by the end of the week.

No worries. I've got it covered - it's called intravenous coffee.

I'm afraid there hasn't been significant progress since you last saw these socks...
I've been secret knitting...

In other news, we're building raised beds for the garden...
Hopefully veggies and a photoflower garden will be in our future!!
Fingers are crossed...at least until I pick up the needles again :)

tea time

If you are cold, tea will warm you;
if you are too heated, it will cool you; 
if you are depressed, it will cheer you;
if you are excited it will calm you. 
~William Ewart Gladstone

Something new and pink to send us off into the weekend.

Lunch with a friend, basketball and knitting,
and lots of tea will fill my weekend.

What about you? What's on your agenda?

Wishing you a cheery weekend! xo

some days
get a little derailed and need 
a little extra help to get back on track.

...the beginning of a new sock...
...a latte and macarons...

how do you get back on track?

We must embrace pain and burn it as fuel for our journey.
