knitting today

July 01, 2011

What a good day.

I spent a lot of time in the garden this morning, just making sure I don't fall behind on the chores.

 Came in and planned dinner and cleaned up a good bit.  Made a few patriotic posies to scatter around.

And now the whole day lies before me with nothing but knitting in mind.  Twenty years ago on a day like today we would be making popsicles or heading down to the pool. 

But today it's choosing between these two lovely projects.  Favorite Cardigan using Cascade Sierra, a lovely worsted weight with 80% cotton and 20% wool.
 Or the lacy Emma Shrug using Sparrow, an organic fingering weight linen.
And to make my day even better, I have The Paris Wife to listen to on my iPad. 

My son is taking pictures of me today with a new cardigan and a new shawl.  A new post tomorrow!
