Today, I made a concerted effort to do absolutely nothing. Granted, I've been doing nothing for 5+ years, but this was a wee bit different. In the last couple of weeks, I've has something to do, something to anticipate, something to think/worry about every day. With Madeleine's vet visit Tuesday, and getting Hannah to and from her doctor's appointment yesterday, all my obligations came to an end. So, today, I could shower or not (I did), know I had enough provisions to keep me from having to make a grocery run, know there were unlikely to be any frantic phone calls --- just relax.
I finished my Presidents' Day square:
I don't know about you, but I'm trying to find different stitches for each square. If a particular yarn won't take to something, stockinette is the default, but I've been very lucky so far.
I found this in a catalog the other day. Is this beautiful, or what? The pattern is for a long, long tube, stuffed and then knotted.
I'm well aware that one of the draws here, for me at least, is the spareness in the photo. I like crisp lines and "plainness." But that is still a gorgeous, and brilliant, knit design.
