Mark it, Cesario; it is old and plain.
The spinsters and the knitters in the sun
And the free maids that weave their thread with bones
Do use it to chant it: it is silly sooth,
And dallies with the innocence of love,
Like the old age.
~Shakespeare, Twelfth Night
My knitting needles have provided a soothing sound for the past four months. The above projects, three of which are unfinished , a bamboo knitted summer hat, a bamboo and metallic mohair ruffled scarf/shawl, and a silk/cotton moebius, are presently keeping me entertained in front of the television. The blue and green cotton from the cone scarf/shawl in the lower left corner is completed. I also managed to knit three shrugs, two fancy scarves with ruffles, and one pair of socks, all finished, mind you. The items in the latter bunch are either given away, stored in a drawer, or on the feet of the recipient. You could say I have been rockin and rollin.
I am sipping on green tea while wondering when my next yarn order will arrive at the post office. A lacey top has been bookmarked. I’m also a bit abashed at forgetting the yarn that I purchased for a hiker’s vest. It’s a yummy slub wool with tones of green, shown below.
I have been content to remain indoors working on my projects while watching spy thriller series on Netflix. However, today’s mild weather offers an opportunity to take the Harley for a ride. I’m suddenly reminded there is another world out there. I hope the yarn order will fit in the bike’s saddlebag. 🙂
